Made a promising debut for the Cats against Adelaide in 2011 when he booted a goal with his first kick. Injured his shoulder the following week against Essendon and was out for the rest of the season. Has struggled to get opportunities in recent years, playing only three games in 2012 and five in 2013. Started out as a key forward in the making, but has spent a lot of the past two seasons playing across half-back in the VFL. After being delisted by Geelong at the end of the 2014 season, he joined Sandringham in the VFL and after an outstanding year playing Centre Half back was selected by the Bombers in the National Draft.
Mitch had a terrific debut year for the Bombers, playing 21 games and finishing 6th in the club’s Best and Fairest award.
