Mitch's 10 games have been spread equally across 2009 and 2010 since he left Surfers Junior AFC after 70 games, a club runner-up B&F and coaches award. Playing in the under 18s in 2009, Mitch picked up the Lee Pekins Memorial Medal. He played mainly on the wing, he displayed a tenacity important for the smaller framed player, and an endurance to back up from moving into defence to running forward as the go to link player. Indeed he reckons his best performance was a run and carry from pocket to pocket, and kicking at goal. That ability placed him fifth at the Australian Atlhletic Championships in 2007.
A double degree in Law and Business from Griffith Uni will be his reward if he can demonstrate a similar stamina in studying, with a Property Law consultancy firm the ultimate pot at the end of the rainbow for Mitch. Meanwhile he struggles through light novels for a diversion, to take his mind of Jacko and to steel himself to inform Matty that he cannot make training. Alternatively, Scalesy turns to the utilitarian thoughts and philosophies of John Stuart Mills - who applied for membership of the Melbourne Football Club circa 1858 - that may rest comfortably in the 'big picture' scenarios of Matty.
Also a student of our own umpire's adviser John McKenzie, and chronicler of his witticisms such as: "Anyone would think the number on your back represents your IQ umpire", Mitch is a fairly typical student who brings 2 cans of 4X Gold and drinks 6 of VB greenies.
