Amari Miller will go down as a Ton legend. As part of the supremely talented 2013/14 squad, he helped put Erdington and Saltley firmly back on the map following years of inactivity. In his 24 appearances for The Ton, the then St. Mary and John wing-wizard scored 28 goals and picked up 4 man-of-the-match awards in his 24 appearances. Amari was a key part of the team that lifted two trophies and finished as runners-up in another four and was picked to represent Birmingham Primary Schools’ FA against Leeds Schools’ FA in November 2013.
Fast forward six years since Amari’s last Ton appearance and the second year scholar made the first of what we hope will be many appearances for the first team of Birmingham City FC when he squared up against Lee Bowyer’s Charlton Athletic FC during a pre-season friendly on Saturday 22nd August 2020.
Everyone at The Ton is brimming with pride and we know that this is just the start for the hard-working, talented Mr Miller.
Well done Amari!
Up The Ton!
