Stanley Mills

Stanley Mills is an attacking midfielder who joined Everton at the age of 14 having previously been at Leeds United.

A speedy and skilful dribbler with impressive ball-striking ability, Mills featured regularly for Everton Under-18s in 2020/21 and was on target in the Toffees' FA Youth Cup quarter-final clash with West Bromwich Albion.

Mills made his Everton Under-23s bow in the young Blues' penultimate game of the season and marked his debut with a superb goal in a 5-0 win at Southampton.

He signed a first professional contract with the Blues in July 2021, penning a two-year contract.

Mills went on to enjoy an excellent 2021/22 campaign with Everton Under-23s, playing in all but one of the Blues' 26 Premier League 2 matches, scoring three goals and providing four assists.

Still eligible for Everton's Youth Cup side, he scored three goals in three matches in that competition as the young Toffees reached the last 16 of the prestigious tournament.

Mills' football idol is Everton manager Frank Lampard.

His favourite pre-match meal is beans on toast and, away from football, he likes to listen to Drake, watch Harry Potter and play FIFA.

Mills is the son of former Manchester City, Leeds United and England defender Danny Mills, while his brother is a British indoor athletics champion at 1500m.
