Mitchell joined the club ahead of the 2016 season as Nostell looked to enhance their number of regular players. Matt's last cricketing experience had come for Mirfield a full 12 years earlier but soon impressed for the second team, earning occasional first team call-ups.
Matt was the opening bowler for the second team in every game he played during 2016 and took 35% of second team wickets as he took 32 wickets in less than 100 overs. Matt also chipped in with the bat and looked a promising all-rounder at second team level by the end of the season. Matt will have a great 2017 if he manages to improve on his debut year.
