Chris Mitchell

Sun, 8th May 2016 3:38pm

Everyone connected with Clyde FC was shocked and saddened to learn of the death of Chris Mitchell, at the age of just 27, this weekend.

Chris featured for The Bully Wee during the first half of the 2015-16 season, after joining the club from Queen of the South last summer. He made a significant contribution to the campaign, playing in 18 matches and recording six assists.

In January, it was announced that Chris was leaving the club, due to the travel commitments required of a new full-time job. Commenting on the news at that time, Barry Ferguson praised Chris for his performances and his overall professionalism.

Throughout his football career, Chris also played for Falkirk, Ayr United and Bradford City, and won seven caps at Scotland under-21 level.

Barry, his staff and the players received the news when they were travelling back from Elgin as a group, and are today still coming to terms with the loss.

The thoughts of everyone connected with Clyde FC are with Chris's family and friends at this extremely difficult time. A minute's silence will be observed before the League 1 play-off match against Queen's Park at Broadwood on Tuesday night, in memory of Chris.
