All Rhodes Lead to Telford!

Telford Tigers are pleased to announce the return of defender Rhodes Mitchell-King and delighted that he has signed a two year contract ensuring he remains with the club for the 2024/25 and 2025/26 seasons. 

Mitchell-King joined Tigers in 2022 and has shown great improvement in his two previous seasons. Mitchell-King will continue to wear the number 91 shirt and will start his third year with the club. Rhodes rejoins the club off the back of his best season at senior level last season, scoring 34 points. 

Rhodes commented on his return to the club, “After two good seasons at Telford, I’m happy to be back working with Tom and the rest of the Tigers organisation for another two years.  I feel like I am improving each year and can’t wait to get back on the ice for the new season.”

Tom Watkins, Head Coach and General Manager, commented on the signing of Mitchell-King, “Rhodes had a great season and logged some serious minutes for us, despite being only 20 he stepped up when we lost Danny Rose for the season in the first game and we have leant on him heavily. He’s never taken a night off, plays with a lot of consistency and is one of the key players we rely on game after game. I think what excites me about Rhodes is he can and will still improve, he’s got lots of upside and we are delighted he has committed to the club for two more seasons.”
