Miles, who is a Forward, was a product of the Liverpool Academy, and progressed as far as the reserve team, but in 2002 he was told he had no future at the club.
He joined Stoke City in March 2002, with a short-term contract until the end of the season. He only made one substitute appearance for the club in April replacing Bjarni Guðjónsson in a league match against Bristol City. He was released by the club in the summer.
He subsequently moved to Crewe Alexandra, initially on a monthly contract before signing on a season-long deal in October. He made his club debut in August against Colchester. He scored his only goal for Crewe on New Years Day in 2003 in a 2–0 win against Mansfield Town. In total, he played nine games for Crewe, but struggled to establish himself in the first-team.
Macclesfield Town (loan)
In March 2003 he was loaned out to Macclesfield Town. He scored four goals in eight games during his loan spell, including scoring on his club debut against Kidderminster Harriers and twice in an away victory over Shrewsbury Town, where he scored the winning goal during injury time.
He joined Macclesfield in a permanent move in May 2003 after a successful trial and he remained at Macclesfield until May 2007.
Although offered a new deal at Macclesfield in the summer of 2007, he rejected the contract and opted to move to instead to league two rivals Accrington Stanley on a free transfer.
MK Dons (loan)
On 24 January 2008 it was confirmed he had completed a loan move to Milton Keynes Dons with a view to a permanent deal, re-uniting with his former Macclesfield boss Paul Ince, though after 12 games and no goals his loan spell ended and he returned to Accrington. On his return from loan he still has one year left on his contract, but over the subsequent season he played regularly and in June 2009 re-signed for the club on a one-year contract extension.
In May 2010 he was offered a new contract by Stanley but in June he signed for newly promoted Conference National side Fleetwood Town.
During his time with Fleetwood he went on loan to Droylsden He was not offered a new contract by Fleetwood at the end of the season and was released, along with a number of other players.
In July 2011 he joined Stockport County but was released by the club on 31 January 2012.

In September 2012 he joined Warrington Town, making his debut in a 6–1 away victory over New Mills and scoring on his home debut three days later as they beat Curzon Ashton 3–2.
