Dan the Man for Tigers. Telford Tigers are pleased to announce the signing of 18 year old forward Dan Mitchell for the 2019/20 season. Mitchell returns for his third season at the club after previously playing up for the senior team from the U18 side. Mitchell played 33 games for the club last season scoring 28 points and spent plenty of ice time on the top line alongside Jason Silverthorn and Ricky Plant. Mitchell will again wear the number 88 shirt.

Mitchell commented “I’m excited to be back with the Tigers for the 2019/20 season. I’ve really enjoyed the last two seasons and with my junior career now behind me, I’m looking forward to working hard to compete and work my way up the line up. I like to bring a physical, gritty game and try to create some energy for the team to feed off. Tom has given me a great opportunity and I’ll do everything I can to repay the faith he has shown in me.”

Tom Watkins Head Coach and General Manager said “Dan has joined us as a senior player this season and we have seen a rapid progression in his development over the last two season with him playing up from the U18 team. Dan has excellent speed, good hand eye co-ordination and is not afraid of being physical. This year will be a test for him and I am sure he is up for the challenge. “
