10 days ago it was announced that @deonmitchell19 would not be returning to ‪#‎VanCity‬. His contract was done and we failed to reach terms with him on a new deal. Carlyle Mitchell was joined by a handle of others as being the few players that have been a part of our ‪#‎MLS‬ journey for parts of all 4 years (Omar & Jay are also gone, which leaves us just Rusty, Gersh, and Jordan).

Mitch, we'll miss your aerial dominance, your threat from set pieces, and your long, fast stride that enabled you to recover quickly. We'll never forgot your nutmeg headed goal vs. The Goats! We also remember fondly that your 3 goals in the Reserves all came against ‪#‎Se4tt1e‬! Most importantly we'll always be thankful for the way you embraced the supporters in our city!

This photo was taken by Christopher Vose just before Mitch led us in ‪#‎TheLambada‬ after he set up one of the goals in ‪#‎OurClub‬'s 4-3 victory over New England in June of 2013. ‪#‎ManyThanks‬, ‪#‎Respect‬, & ‪#‎MuchLove‬ for what's up next in your career...we'll be following from afar.

Much Love,

One of the Collective
