Former AFL player Mitchell Brown has showcased his aptitude for hunting goals this season for Mordialloc in the SFNL converting 44 goals across his 13 appearances.
The 11-year AFL veteran has been putting leather to laces this season including a game against St. Kilda City where he unloaded 10 goals in a barrage of kicks which could’ve been mistaken for artillery strikes given the marksmanship and accuracy.
Mitch, who journeyed through the AFL via Essendon, Geelong and Melbourne has treated the backlines with no mercy since arriving in the Southern League, using his 196cm frame to discombobulate defenders and agonise coaches, Mitchell has proved exactly why he stayed in the AFL for so long – and for those who don’t believe the hype just ask St Paul’s McKinnon, St Kilda City & Chelsea Heights who faced Mitch during a spell where he kicked 24 goals in 3 matches.
With his last appearance at the AFL level in 2022 before he announced his retirement, Mitch decided to return home back to family where he could display his footballing brilliance at a local level while donning the Mordialloc colours.
With more years to come on Brown’s deal with Mordialloc the league will be blessed with talent that can captivate fans and pique the interest of locals around the city.
Mordialloc will look to improve and make a push into final’s contention next year behind their star forward. The club is hoping to progress from their 7th spot in the standings this year and make an impact come September time in the future seasons.
Exciting times ahead for footy fans paying attention to a league full of talent, make sure to keep your eye on the goal counter for Mitch Brown next year.
