Mitchell Ryan Beeney (born 3 October 1995) is an English professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for League of Ireland Premier Division side Sligo Rovers.

Club career[edit]

Chelsea[edit]

In 2007, Beeney joined Chelsea's academy from Gillingham, along with his brother Jordan. His father is former professional Mark Beeney.[3] After becoming a key member of Chelsea's under-18 squad, Beeney was promoted up to the under-21 squad. On 10 May 2015, he was named on the bench to face Liverpool, remaining unused in the 1–1 draw at Stamford Bridge.[4]

Loan to Newport County[edit]

On 15 January 2016, Beeney joined League Two side Newport County on a one-month loan deal.[5] The next day, he made his professional debut in a 1–0 victory over York City at Bootham Crescent, therefore earning a clean sheet.[6] The loan period was extended on 18 February, to 16 April.[7] However, on 25 February 2016 Beeney was released from his loan by Newport manager Warren Feeney after his partner criticised the club on Twitter for putting him on the bench for a game against Exeter City.[8]

Loan to Crawley Town[edit]

On 23 June 2016, it was announced that Beeney would be joining League Two side Crawley Town until January 2017.[9] On 20 July 2016, it was announced that Beeney would wear the number one jersey ahead of Crawley Town's 2016–17 campaign.[10] Then later on he signed a one-year extension at Chelsea. On 30 August 2016, Beeney was given his first start in a EFL Trophy tie against Colchester United, after being used as a back-up to Yusuf Mersin. The game resulted in a 1–0 victory for the Reds, with James Collins scoring the only goal.[11] On 10 September 2016, Beeney made his league debut in a 2–1 away defeat against Stevenage.[12]

Loan to Sligo Rovers[edit]

On 22 February 2018, Beeney was announced as having signed on loan for Sligo Rovers of the League of Ireland until 30 June 2018.[13] A day later, he made his debut during their 2–1 home victory over Derry City, playing the full 90 minutes as Sligo Rovers claimed their first three points of the season.[14]

Sligo Rovers[edit]

After being released by Chelsea, Beeney re-signed for Rovers on a permanent deal.[15]
