A friend of Major Frank Buckley recommended Miller to United. He signed from Arcadia Shepherds FC, Western Province, in November 1950 and within weeks he had to acclimatize to snowbound pitches. He had a run of six games at Inside Right followed by another three consecutive games a month later, both times in place of Ray Iggleden. Early in the 1951-52 season he came in at Inside Left replacing Ernie Stevenson for two games. While he took the chance to score his first and only goal for United in the home defeat by Everton, the last time that Everton would win a League game at Elland Road for over fifty years, but he did not cement his spot, as first Charlie Hughes and then Don Mills were preferred to him. He did get one game at Inside Left, when Ray Iggleden missed his only game of the season, but three weeks later he had his final game for Leeds in place of Inside Right Don Mills. The following week he was replaced by fellow South African Gordon Stewart and it was left to Stewart and Mills to battle for the vacant inside forward spot. In January 1952 a move to Preston North End fell through and two months later he went to Workington, but managed only eleven appearances before being released, and he returned to South Africa. He scored twice in three appearances for South Africa.
