  • 1996
    Age 93
    Died on January 27, 1996.
    More Details Hide Details
  • THIRTIES
  • 1940
    Age 37
    Moreover, when he refused to rejoin the team after World War II, the Derbyshire committee declined to give Mitchell the benefit he was due to receive in 1940.
    More Details Hide Details He did, though, continue to baffle batsmen for Hickleton Main well into his fifties. At his best a master of flight and variety, Mitchell was capable of many more balls that the typical leg break and googly bowler. Often he would vary his leg-breaks with off-breaks made by turning the wrist in the opposite direction to that of a conventional leg-break or googly, and his top-spinner also brought him many wickets. However, Mitchell, unlike such bowlers as Tich Freeman, was erratic and, especially in his later years, he could have days where he was heaven for batsmen wishing for quick runs. He was never much of a batsman, but was a capable field at cover-point. When he died at Hickleton, Doncaster, Yorkshire, Mitchell was the oldest surviving English Test cricketer and was surrounded by great-grandchildren, seemingly contented in a way not seen in his days as a player.
  • 1939
    Age 36
    In the 1939 season, however, Mitchell did not do much work because Derbyshire's pace attack was so consistently effective and he failed to take 100 wickets for the first time in 11 seasons.

  • 1936
    Age 33
    Along with Bill Copson, Leslie Townsend and the brothers Pope, he formed an attack sufficiently strong during the dreadful summer of 1936 to, aided by some quirks in the weather, displace Yorkshire from their perennial position atop the Championship table.
    More Details Hide Details
  • 1935
    Age 32
    Mitchell set a record for Derbyshire with 168 wickets in 1935 but Derbyshire's Championship win in the 1936 season was considerably less successful and at times very expensive even when conditions favoured bowlers (e.g. against Kent at Burton-on-Trent and Warwickshire at Edgbaston).
    More Details Hide Details Still, on Mitchell's good days Derbyshire's bowling that season could compare with almost any county side in history, and the following two seasons still saw him as one of the best spin bowlers in England.
    Still, he could be deadly on his best days, as when he took all ten wickets in an innings against Leicestershire for 64 runs at Leicester in 1935 or when he took 7 for 26 against Gloucestershire on a blameless pitch at Derby a year later.
    More Details Hide Details
    He was close to the top of the averages in those two seasons, but from the 1935 season appeared to sacrifice length to gain more spin and often suffered heavy punishment.

  • 1933
    Age 30
    However, for Derbyshire Mitchell went from strength to strength in the dry summers of 1933 and 1934, at times bowling with sensational skill, as when he dismissed Worcestershire for 48 on a good pitch in 1934.
    More Details Hide Details
  • TWENTIES
  • 1930
    Age 27
    In the 1930 season, he did even better, and though expensive in the 1931 and 1932 seasons, his ability to spin the ball on dry pitches more than any other leg-spinner in county cricket saw him taken on the Ashes tour (in preference to the likes of Tich Freeman) when business prevented Walter Robins touring.
    More Details Hide Details He played in the Fourth Test as a replacement for Bill Voce who was injured, and despite dismissing Bill Woodfull in both innings he was never able to establish himself for England. Indeed, he was so expensive when called upon in 1934 that he took no wicket and conceded 117 runs, and the following year, when he was very disappointing on a leatherjacket-infested Lord's wicket that should have helped him, he is quoted as having said "You couldn't captain a team of bloody lead soldiers" to his captain Bob Wyatt. Indeed, Mitchell's tactlessness towards administrators made him quite unpopular with them and may have prejudiced his chances of doing well in representative cricket.
  • 1929
    Age 26
    However in the 1929 season he took 100 wickets and was deadly whenever the pitches took sufficient spin.

  • 1926
    Age 23
    Mitchell was born at Creswell, Bolsover, Derbyshire and was a faceworker in the coal mines. He was first spotted by Derbyshire during the General Strike of 1926 and began playing for Derbyshire in the 1928 season but was disappointing.
