Whitehouse, Belfast born outside-right Eddie Mitchell began his football career with Monkstown, Distillery II and Brantwood before joining amateur Irish League club Cliftonville in 1930. Capable of accurate centres, he earned full and amateur Ireland international honours while with Cliftonville during the 1932-33 season, winning his first cap against Scotland in a 4-0 defeat at Windsor Park in September 1932, and 2 amateur caps in January and February 1933 against Scotland and England. That campaign also saw him collect a Gold Cup winner’s medal as The Reds defeated Linfield 2-1 with Mitchell scoring the opener.

Transferred to Glentoran in 1933, he won another full Irish cap in a 1-1 draw with Wales in November 1933 while at The Oval and appeared in the surprise 1-0 Gold Cup Final defeat by Portadown. Having signed professional forms at Glentoran and gained international honours it came as a surprise that he was one of 13 players to be given a free transfer by Glentoran at the end of that season, having made 30 League appearances.

Disillusioned, Mitchell joined Ballymena United for season 1934-35 and even played with Coleraine between October and December of that season. He then joined Bangor for 1935-36 season, but his appetite for football had gone and he played his final Irish League match on 13th September 1935. He then drifted out of the game and concentrated on his occupation as a sail maker.

NB although published after his move to Ballymena United in 1934 the photograph clearly shows Mitchell in his Ireland jersey and cap from a year before
