Alex Mitchell is a supremely talented scrum half who represents Northampton Saints and England.
Born 25 May 1997, Alex Mitchell is from a rugby playing-family. His brother, James, also represented Northampton Saints and now plays for Doncaster Knights.
Alex Mitchell began playing rugby at Lymm High School, where he notably played against Tom Curry and Ben Curry in the NatWest Schools Cup. During his younger years, he was also a member of the Sale Sharks academy. However, in 2015, Alex Mitchell left the Sale academy to join the academy at Northampton Saints.
Then, in the 2017-18 season, Alex Mitchell made his debut for the senior team at Northampton. From here, he never looked back. After making nine appearances in his debut season, Alex Mitchell became a regular member of the senior squad. Then, in 2019, he was a member of the side that defeated Saracens in the final of the Premiership Rugby Cup.
Due to his obvious talent for the game, Alex Mitchell has been a member of the England set-up since he was young. As a result, he’s represented his country at U16, U17, U18 and U20 level. In 2017, he was a member of the England U20 side that won the Grand Slam at the Six Nations Under 20s Championship.
In 2020, Alex Mitchell received his first ever call up to the England senior squad. A year later, he made his debut for England against Tonga. He scored a try from the bench as England ran out 69-3 victors.
Still young and with his best years ahead of him, we can’t wait to see what else Alex Mitchell can achieve in the game.
