Miles James Storey (born 4 January 1994) is an English professional footballer who plays for Swindon Town as a forward.

Career[edit]

Storey was born in West Bromwich and started his football education with Wolverhampton Wanderers but was released and whilst playing for Sedgeley Lions under 15s in Division 3 – was spotted by Mick Elliott MBE who was the head of recruitment at Coventry City. He signed for Coventry City but after one full season was not offered a scholarship and was released. Again without a club, Elliott took Storey to Swindon Town for a trial game where he impressed the coaches and was handed a two-year scholarship. During his first season as a scholar at Swindon, he impressed and helped Paul Bodin's youth side to win their third successive season.[3]

After Swindon Town manager Paul Hart was dismissed as manager in April 2011, Storey's coach Paul Bodin was immediately installed as caretaker boss.[4] Bodin immediately brought Storey into the first team set-up for the club's home fixture against Oldham Athletic. He made his debut as a 78th minute substitute, replacing on-loan forward Calvin Andrew in a 0–2 loss.[5]

On 30 October 2012, Storey scored twice against Premier League side Aston Villa in the League Cup, to level the score at 2–2, before Christian Benteke scored a late winner to send Aston Villa through 3–2.[6]

On 6 May 2013, Storey missed a penalty in a shoot-out in the play-off semi-final against Brentford, as Swindon lost 5–4 on penalties, after the tie had finished 4–4 on aggregate.[7] He was handed his first start on 10 August, and provided an assist for the game's winner against Stevenage.[8]

On 5 October 2013, it was announced that Storey had joined Conference Premier side Salisbury City on a month's loan deal. He made his debut on the same day in a 2–1 win against Wrexham.

On 21 December, Storey returned to first team action for The Robins, and after coming off the bench in the 71st minute to replace Ryan Harley in a Football League One home clash against his former side Coventry City, he scored the winner 15 minutes later.[9]

On 14 February 2014, Storey joined fellow League One side Shrewsbury Town in a one-month loan.[10] On 10 July, he moved to League Two side Portsmouth, also in a temporary deal. [11]

On 30 January 2015 Storey joined Newport County on an initial one-month loan.[12] He made his debut for Newport on 31 January versus Shrewsbury Town as a second-half substitute. The loan was subsequently extended to the end of the 2014–15 season. He scored his first goal for Newport on 28 February 2015 in the 1–0 win versus Burton Albion.

International career[edit]

On 13 November 2012, Storey made his England under-19 debut in a 1–0 win against Finland.[13]
