Miles Vivien Esifi Addison, born 7 January 1989, is an English footballer who joined Killie on 29th March 2016 on a short term deal until the end of the 2015/16 season. He can play as both a central defender or a central midfielder. Miles subsequently signed a new 2 year contract in the summer of 2016!
From his Wikipedia:
Though born in London, Addison moved to Nottingham at the age of 3, where he was spotted by scouts from the Derby County youth system. Addison was handed his first team debut by interim manager Terry Westley, who he had worked closely with in the youth and reserve teams, towards the end of the 2005–06 season, in the 1–1 Championship draw with Hull City on 17 April 2006, where he played in the centreback position alongside side another academy graduate Lewin Nyatanga.
He kept his place for the following match, a 2–0 defeat away to Ipswich 5 days later. With the appointment of Billy Davies as Derby manager, Addison found himself frozen out of the first team at Derby and didn't appear in the starting eleven again until Davies' successor, Paul Jewell, gave him a surprise start, again at centreback, in a 3–1 defeat away to Blackburn in the penultimate game of the 2007–08 Premier League season. Derby's poor start to the 2008–09 season saw Addison given a chance to cement a place in the first team and he was given his first start of the campaign in the 1–0 League Cup win at Preston on 26 August 2008. Starting in his preferred position of central midfield for the first time, Addison impressed enough to retain his place for the subsequent match away to Barnsley. This was the start of a run of 15 consecutive appearances in the first team, which was only ended when suspension for reaching five yellow cards ruled him out of the League Cup 4th round tie against Leeds United.
Addison formed a formidable midfield partnership with Paul Green during this time as the Rams embarked on a run of only 2 defeats in 13 matches and moved from the bottom of the table to the fringes of the playoff places. Addison's form earned high praise from Jewell as an example to the club's other academy players and saw him sign a new three-and-a-half year deal with the club on 2 September to keep him at the club until 2011. November saw Addison linked with a £2 million move to Premier League Stoke. However, Jewell denied this, saying "I spoke to Tony (Pulis, Stoke manager) about another matter and he never mentioned it. We are not going to sell Miles Addison. He won't be getting sold. Everybody has their price I guess, but we have worked too hard over the past year and gone through too many tortures to now start selling our best players".
Addison was denied his first goal for the club in the controversial East Midlands derby on 2 November 2008 when Stuart Attwell incorrectly ruled two late Addison headers which would have given Derby a 2–1 win, with the match instead finishing 1–1. but eventually got his first professional goal with the second in a 3–0 home win over Sheffield Wednesday on 15 November 2008. On 20 December 2008 he captained the winning side against Watford. Addison said "it was a dream to captain the side who I support".
Addison was substituted during Derby's 4–1 win over Blackpool F.C., an injury which was later diagnosed to be a stress fracture of his foot, which ruled him out for the rest of the 2008–09 season. Despite missing the latter part of the campaign Addison's form was such that he won the Sammy Crooks Trophy – Derby County's Young Player of the Season award – for the 2008/09 season. Addison had a great start to the 2009/10 season with goals against Peterborough United and Plymouth Argyle, but a succession of foot problems restricted him to just five starts between October 2009 and February 2010 and he underwent specialist surgery in America.
The surgery was successful but he was ruled out for the remainder of Derby's 2009/10 season as well as the entirety of the 2010/11 campaign. However, Addison made a quicker than expected recovery, with Clough suggesting he may be back in first team action as early as January 2011. He was pencilled in to play a reserve game against Sheffield Wednesday on 26 October 2010 but was later withdrawn as a precaution after admitting he felt "a bit stiff". He eventually took to the pitch in a competitive capacity when he came on as an 81st-minute substitute in a 2–0 home win over Portsmouth on 6 November 2010, his first appearance in 10 months, as Derby reached 4th in the table. On 21 June 2011, Addison signed a contract extension, extending his stay at Pride Park until summer 2013.
Loan at Barnsley
On 24 June 2011, Addison joined fellow Championship club, Barnsley on six-month loan deal. At Barnsley, Addison struggled with injuries and made a total of 9 appearance during his loan spell. However, on 2 January 2012, Addison's loan was extended until 28 January 2012. Addison returned to Derby in January 2012 after making 13 appearances for Barnsley, 11 of which were starts.
Loan at Bournemouth
After his loan spell finish at Barnsley, Addison found first-team appearances hard to come by at Pride Park due to the form of central defenders Shaun Barker and Jason Shackell. On 21 February 2012, Addison joined Football League One side Bournemouth on loan until the end of the season. Following his loan move to Bournemouth, Addison hinted that he would be open to a permanent move and said his calling his treatment by Derby as "strange". On 25 February 2012, Addison made his first start and played 90 minutes for Bournemouth in a 1-0 loss against MK Dons. On 10 March 2012, Addison scored an own goal to put Sheffield Wednesday 1–0 ahead and the result was 3-0 for Sheffield Wednesday. On 17 March 2012, Addison scored his first goal for Bournemouth in the 83rd minute in a 1–1 draw against Carlisle United to end a run of five defeats for Bournemouth.
On 13 April 2012, Addison expressed an interest to make his move to Bournemouth permanent. Derby manager Nigel Clough said on 16 April 2012, that Addison was free to leave the club, stating the form of Craig Bryson, Jeff Hendrick, Mark O'Brien, Jake Buxton and Jason Shackell as the reason, with Bournemouth stating an interest in a permanent deal. Addison featured 14 times for Bournemouth, who ended the season 11th as their play-off hopes faded in April. Upon his return to Derby, Bournemouth stated their interest in making the transfer permanent in the summer and on 22 May 2012, Addison was transfer listed by the club with a year left on his contract. As well as Bournemouth there was reported interest from several Championship clubs according to Nigel Clough.
On 12 July 2012, Addison joined Bournemouth for an undisclosed fee.
On 24 November 2015 Addison signed for Peterborough United. On his debut he scored against former club Barnsley in a 3–2 win.
30th March 2016 (Official Website): “I’m delighted to get back into football and working with Lee Clark again. I worked with Lee Clark at Blackpool last season and am looking forward to starting training with the rest of the team."
June 20th 2016: “The manager played a massive role in me staying. If it hadn’t been for him last season, getting me to come to Kilmarnock, I’d probably have just seen the season out. My head wasn’t really in the right place to continue and go in somewhere else and do something new.
I owe the manager so much and I think he realises that and knows I’ll give everything I’ve got every single day. He is an infectious character and I think you’ve just got to look at his past playing career – it’s unbelievable. Everything he says you’ve just got to listen to it.”
My role in helping the players settle in will be massive. I don’t know what the average age of the squad will be but I think it’s going to be pretty young. I’ve not seen much of the new guys coming in but, coming from England and being young, it’ll be difficult for them at first. The older players will have to help them along and that’s something I’ll be looking to do.”
The highest team I played against was St Johnstone and we beat them 3-0. I can’t really comment on the standard too much, I’ll need to do a full half season because I don’t want to disrespect the division or over–praise it either. All I know is the players I played with last season could easily have gone into a Championship team I’ve played with in the past – so that’s the only way I can judge it.
I can’t wait to go to some of the big stadiums next season. I want to test myself against Hearts, Rangers, Aberdeen and Celtic – that’s the reason I came to the club.” - Kilmarnock Standard, David Wren, 30th June 2016
July 25th 2016: "It is a hard result to take but we didn't deserve anything from Saturday's (Morton Lge Cup) game. We can analyse it as much as we like, but at the end of the day we can all look at ourselves in the mirror and know we didn't do enough as individuals to get anything from it.
Quite a few of the boys who came in have not really played much first-team football and now they've had a taste of what the game is about up here. If they weren't sure what they were in for they will know now. The result is a wake-up call for everyone.
They are only going to realise what this league is about from playing games. You can be as good as you want on the training pitch but when it comes to a Saturday, that is when we need them to perform.
I think in the back of a lot of people's heads has been August 6 but these are competitive games now and the next game is Tuesday with another to come on Saturday," he said. "After that we're into the league and we need to be flying by then.
The new boys and everyone else know we need to get right up to speed straight away." - The Herald, 25th July 2016
On 29 March 2016, Addison signed for Scottish Premiership side Kilmarnock. He scored his first goal for the club on 22 May 2016 as Killie beat Falkirk 4–0 in the second leg of the Premiership play-off final at Rugby Park. He was released in the latter part of the 2016-17 season.
