Martin Ling has swooped to sign experienced 28-year old attacking midfielder Adam Miller to complete his midfield unit for the coming season.

A delighted Martin Ling told cambridgeunited.com, "Adam's got the experience we needed to add to the midfield in the central area, as the burden was too heavy on Paul Carden last year.

"We have good young players such as Ives, McAuley and Berry who can slot in, but adding his experience to the mix will help make us a lot more solid in the centre of the team."

Adam has played in the Conference, League One, League Two and the Championship over recent years with previous clubs including Gillingham, Stevenage and Queens Park Rangers.

Martin went on, "He's got a decent scoring record and goals from midfield is an area we need to improve on, so along with the signing of Conal last week this should now improve.

Martin went on, "Adam has had offers from league clubs but my patience and the ambition of the football club won the day. He's signed a three year contract so it's a big commitment from both parties.

"If you look at his record, every manager he's worked with at one club often take him to another club. This shows the talent of the player."

Adam has been allocated squad number 8 for the 2010/11 season and spoke exclusively to cambridgeunited.com after signing his contract, "What impressed me most was Martin Ling and the way he went about things. He was upfront and honest which is a massive thing for me.

"He's treated me well from the first conversation I've had with him all the way through to signing.

"I know his pedigree, he's a league manager in my mind, and obviously did very well at that level and should still be a league manager.

"I believe I should still be a league player but the way Martin interacted with me and the ambition he and the Club showed made me want to sign.

"I am an attacking, energetic experienced midfielder that's looking to chip in with my fair share of goals and get the Club back into the Football League, where it should be."

"I've done the business at this level before and am confident I'll do the same again.

Martin is now searching for two strikers to complete his squad for the 2010/11 season.
