Butchers young gun
New to the club but also very new to the country is young Englishman Mitchell Cox. Mitchell wasn’t off the plane a few days before he was ripping in at training for the Butchers in heatwave conditions, nothing like the cold English weather he left a few days before.
Mitchell and his partner Chelsea Birchall have moved to Australia for an adventure and Mitchell is hoping to win a title with the mighty Butchers.Quickly adapting from Northern England to the Northern Suburbs of Wollongong, Mitch is loving the great Aussie summer weather!
