'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Former Town Loanee Retires

Former Swindon Town loanee Paul Mitchell has been forced to retire from professional football after failing to recover from a long-term leg and ankle injury.

The The 27 year old Milton Keynes Dons defender, who also captained them was advised by their medical staff to call it quits.

Mitchell was signed by Andy King on a months loan from Wigan Athletic back in September 2004. The Mancunian defender started seven games for Swindon making his debut in the 1-0 away win at Colchester. This was followed by a home loss to Peterborough and a draw at Blackpool. Wins against Bradford (Sammy Igoe free-kick) and Oldham, a 3-3 draw with Stockport (Town surrendering a 3-0 lead) and a 1-0 loss at home to Port Vale completed his spell before returning to the JJB Stadium.

Paul Mitchell has now been appointed a community ambassador at MK Dons.

Not the most relevant Swindon Town story you'll ever read. However, it's my intention to leave no stone unturned in media world. Had Wigan not had an injury crises Mitchell may have become a mainstay as Kingy clearly rated him. We brought in Steve Jenkins instead.

Mitchell wasn't bad. Infact I believe Kingy wanted to sign him on a permanent deal. Shame to see any players career end like this. I believe a player got his legs broken on the weekend who plays at Barrow. I think his career will be done to. Tib and Fib done.

That was Mike Pearson who had only just fell into Non-League. He's only 20 so he may have the chance to remain in NL football - I would imagine he's finished as far as pro football is concerned.
