Mitch-Clark

This afternoon, the Geelong Football Club decided to part company with forward Mitch Clark after an injury riddled two years at the Cats.

For the 29-year-old, Geelong was Clark’s third AFL club after stints at the Brisbane Lions, and at Melbourne.

Clark played just nine games in his two years at the Cats with just the one senior appearance in the hoops this season, coming in Round 16 against the Sydney Swans.

Since his debut with the Lions in 2006, Clark notched up 106 AFL games, though he missed the majority of the 2014 season after a well-publicised battle with mental health issues, which caused him to step away from the game.

Clark kicked 111 goals during his AFL career, with a best of 29 coming in 11 matches during his first season at the Demons in 2012. Unfortunately, injury has played a large role in stifling Clark’s footballing career, and it seems the decision by Geelong to release him will now see the end of Mitch Clark at AFL level.
