Fletcher Coup for Mitchell – The Southern League

Max Mitchell, manager of Pitching In Southern League Division One Central club Welwyn Garden City, has pulled off something of a coup with the signing of much sought-after central defender Tommy Fletcher.

The 27-year-old has opted to play his football at Herns Lane in the face of several offers from elsewhere, upon his departure from league rivals Walthamstow, where he has starred for the last three seasons.

The former professional, who was on the books of League One Wycombe Wanderers for two seasons between 2013 and 2015, began his career at now-Vanarama National League outfit Cheshunt and was so impressive as a teenager, that the Chairboys snapped him up on a two-year contract.

Upon release from Adams Park, he spent loan spells with Bishop’s Stortford and Chesham United, before taking a break from football, resuming his career by joining Walthamstow.

The move reunites him with his former manager, who had him under his charge for 18 months at Wadham Lodge.

Mitchell told his club’s website: “Fletch was much in demand when he decided to move on from Walthamstow. We’re delighted he has chosen Welwyn Garden City to further his career. He’ll be a major player for us”.
