Career[edit]

Watford[edit]

Mingoia, who was born in Enfield[3] of Italian and Sicilian descent, joined Watford at the age of 13 and rose through the ranks. He signed professional terms towards the end of the 2009–10 season, penning a one-year deal following the conclusion of his two-year scholarship.[4] He marked his full debut on 8 January 2011 against Hartlepool United in the FA Cup with a fine goal, curling in from 25 yards.[5] Watford went on to win the game 4–1.

He made his league debut for Watford in the 3–0 home win against Derby County a week later, as an 81st-minute substitute for Marvin Sordell.[6] Mingoia made four more appearances during the 2010–11 season[7] and was rewarded with a two-year contract extension.[8]

Mingoia joined Brentford on loan for a month on 5 January 2012.[3] He took no part in any matchday squad for the club, and returned to Watford a week before his loan spell was due to end.[9] Mingoia joined Hayes & Yeading United on loan on 22 March for one month.[10]

Mingoia joined League Two side Accrington Stanley on an initial month's loan in September 2012. This was extended for a further three months in October, keeping Mingoia at Stanley until January 2013.[11] On 31 January 2013, He joined Boreham Wood on loan until the end of the season, stating that he "wanted to go back to basics and enjoy playing football again".[12]

Watford released Mingoia when his contract expired at the end of the 2012–13 season.[13]

Accrington Stanley[edit]

Mingoia returned to Accrington Stanley to sign a one-year contract on 1 August 2013.[14] On 22 January 2014, Mingoia signed a new contract extension to keep him contracted until the summer of 2015.[15]

Cambridge United[edit]

Mingoia signed a two-year deal with Cambridge United on 2 June 2016. [16] He scored on his debut in a 1–1 draw with Barnet on 6 August 2016.[17]
