Profile:
Aberdeen captain when the Dons were enjoying the great days of the 50's, leading the club to their first Championship in 1955. Was appointed skipper almost immediately when he was signed from Morton in 1952. Joined Aberdeen as one of their most expensive signings at the time, coming from Morton for 7,000. Capped at League level, Mitchell was a popular full back, committed to the cause. Released in 1958, Mitchell went on to manage Cowdenbeath.
