We are delighted to announce the permanent signing of Jonny Mitchell.
The Goalkeeper joins us after recently leaving Derby County.
Mitchell, who was born and raised in Hartlepool spent the 2020/21 season on loan with League one side Northampton Town making 42 appearences overall.
The 6ft 2in, 26 year old keeper has a fair amount of EFL experience under his belt. He spent the first half of the 2018/19 season on loan with Oxford United in Sky Bet League One, playing 15 times and recording six clean sheets.
The second half of that campaign was also spent in League One with Shrewsbury Town. Mitchell made nine appearances for the Shrews and kept four clean sheets, leading to a total ten clean sheets in 24 League 1 appearances that season.
Either side of those spells, he played five games for Luton Town in a previous loan spell and appeared 11 times for Macclesfield Town in 2019/20 before the season was suspended because of COVID-19.
Mitchell will wear the number 35 this season.
