Clement Mitchell (20 February 1862 – 6 October 1937) was an English sportsman who represented the England national football team and played first-class cricket with Kent.

Mitchell was the first ever Englishman to score a hat-trick against Wales in an international, with goals in the 16th, 70th and 90th minutes of their 1883 clash at Kennington Oval. A centre-forward, he also scored a goal in a loss to Scotland a month later and in a 1-1 draw with Wales at the 1885 British Home Championship.[1]

He played eight first-class cricket matches as a left-handed batsman for Kent between 1890 and 1892. He scored just 126 runs at 9.69 with a highest score of 38 not out.[2]
