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

Career[edit]

Swindon Town[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 a 1–0 win against Burton Albion.

Inverness Caledonian Thistle (loan)[edit]

Storey joined Scottish Premiership club Inverness Caledonian Thistle during the summer transfer window on loan until January.[13] He scored his first goal for the club on his debut against Heart of Midlothian in a 2–0 victory. His contract was extended to last until the end of the season, there were some issues with John Hughes trying to get contact with Swindon chairman and former team-mate Lee Power to extend Storey's contract as it was to end after a cup match against Stirling Albion.[14]

Aberdeen[edit]

On 17 May 2016, Storey agreed to join Aberdeen when his contract with Swindon expired in the summer of 2016.[15] He scored his first goal for Aberdeen on 20 August 2016, in a 2–1 win against Partick Thistle.[16]

International career[edit]

On 13 November 2012, Storey made his England under-19 debut in a 1–0 win against Finland.[17]
