We are delighted to announce the signing of Pierce Mitchell. The centre back joins us from Cribbs, following his recent departure from Yate Town.
Mitchell, 26, has over 170 appearances at Southern League Premier and Div 1 level, including over 100 appearances for Taunton Town. Pierce previously progressed through Bristol City's academy before signing for Bristol Rovers. Which included loan spells at Bath City and Weston-super-Mare. Followed by signing for Truro City.
Then Pierce made one sub appearance for Frome Town coming on in the 81st minute on opening day of 2016-17 season v Hayes & Yeading. Where we won 2-1. Pierce was then snapped up by Taunton Town where he helped the club achieve a promotion, after over 100 appearances, the subsequent seasons saw him join Swindon Supermarine and Yate Town this summer.
Manager Danny Greaves stated, "Delighted to be able to add Pierce to the squad ahead of an extremely busy last 8 weeks which will see us play 15 games.He has won this league previously and played most of his football in the league above. He is a great age at 26, and still has a hunger to continue to win. This is a signing not only for the final weeks of this season, but also with one eye on next season.
Pierce commented: "Frome has always been a club I have wanted to play for due to the style of play and the direction the club is heading in. Luckily, I know a few of the lads already and as they are close friends of mine, so I’m sure it will take no time at all to settle in. I'm buzzing to get started and help the club push for the playoffs!"
All of us at the club welcome Pierce to the club.
