Club career[edit]

Histon[edit]

Mitchel-King was born in Reading, Berkshire.[1] While at Histon, Mitchel-King was a part-time body double of Rio Ferdinand for the Nike adverts. He gave this up when he signed a two-year full-time contract with Crewe Alexandra.[3]

Crewe Alexandra[edit]

Mitchel-King joined Crewe Alexandra on 29 June 2009, on a free transfer after rejecting a new deal with Histon.[4] He made his league debut in Crewe's opening day defeat to Dagenham & Redbridge. He was released from the club in May 2011.[5]

AFC Wimbledon[edit]

On 24 June 2011, newly promoted League Two side AFC Wimbledon announced the signing of Mitchel-King after his release from Crewe Alexandra.[6] However, the start of his season was hampered by an injury which kept him sidelined for the first twelve games of the season. He made his first team debut in a London Senior Cup tie against Wingate & Finchley on 29 November 2011. He was released by AFC Wimbledon with nine other players on 14 May 2013.[7]

Dartford[edit]

Following his release from AFC Wimbledon, Mitchel-King joined Conference side Dartford on 9 August 2013.[8] He made his debut on 10 August 2013 in a 1–0 win over Alfreton Town.[9] On 29 January 2015, he left Dartford following the expiration of his contract and long-term work commitments.[10]

St. Neots Town[edit]

In January 2015, following his release from Dartford, he signed for Southern Football League Premier Division side St Neots Town on a free transfer.[11]

Hemel Hempstead Town[edit]

Mitchel-King left St Neots Town to join National League South side Hemel Hempstead Town in early 2016, but left after the conclusion of the 2015-16 season.[12]

Chesham United[edit]

He then joined Chesham United.[13]
