Cornish born and bred, George Mitchell impressed in the club’s second open trial which was held in November 2022.

He was rewarded with his first professional rugby league contract for the 2023 campaign. And the Penryn man made his competitive debut for the Choughs in the side’s narrow 20–14 defeat to Rochdale Mayfield in the Betfred Challenge Cup.

Mitchell picked up a deserved Player of the Match award in the away reverse at the hands of Dewsbury, but he was then struck down with a hamstring injury which kept him out for a number of weeks.

He returned to play a starring role in the victory over London Skolars and in the Coughs’ final two home matches against Oldham and Rochdale Hornets, Mitchell crossed the whitewash for his first tries in Cornwall colours.
