Mitchell says he can't wait to get started

21 January 2022

Jonathan Mitchell says he jumped at the chance to join Rovers after leaving Hartlepool United earlier this month.

The goalkeeper has made 100 career appearances and joins on an 18-month contract.

“I left Hartlepool earlier this month and I heard there was a bit of interest. I spoke to the gaffer and jumped at the chance to join,” he said.

“The conversations have been really positive and I think the gaffer wants to change a few things.

“Obviously, we’re not in a great position at the minute, but he has a plan and a real belief that we can push on.”

Louis Jones recently reclaimed the No.1 spot and Mitchell joins to provide competition for the position.

“First and foremost, Louis and I both want to be playing,” he added.

“It will be a healthy rivalry and I’ve had that wherever I’ve been and I feel like we can better each other.

“I’ve seen in training the potential that he has and I’m sure we’ll push each other on.

“Sometimes, being a goalkeeper is almost like a team within a team – the unfortunate part is only one can play.”
