Telford Tigers 1 are pleased to announce the signing of forward Dan Mitchell for the forthcoming season. Mitchell returns to the Tigers after a successful spell last year with the senior team as well as the U18 team who won the National Finals. Mitchell scored 13 points last season for the senior team, adding to the 38 points scored for the U18 team.
General Manager and Head Coach Tom Watkins commented, “Dan is a great kid, great fun around the team and a real character. He’s still young, but slotted into the team very well last season and was somebody who improved a great deal. He’s still learning but with the experience of last season, I’m expecting him to really turn some heads and knock a more senior player out of a spot. He’s got the attributes I like to have on the team, very quick, fearless, physical and plays with some bite. When he plays with that grit, he is a huge asset for us. I think he is in a good environment for his development which is the most important thing right now. Dan was part of the U18 Playoff Championship winning team which was a great achievement for him as an individual and he has the ability to play as a forward or in defence which is a plus for me as coach.”
Dan stated, “I am delighted to be returning to Telford Tigers for the forthcoming season, I enjoyed playing for the senior team last year and will be looking to compete for a place in the line up every game. I hope that we can reward the fans with some silverware this season.”
Dan’s own and loan shirts are available to order now for £100 each (Home and Away). Please see the own and loan registration page for more details and to register.
