Norton Joins Williamstown

 

Western Jets midfielder/forward Mitch Norton has joined the Williamstown Football Club.

 

The Seagulls signed Norton after a strong 2015 TAC Cup campaign where he finished runner-up to Lachlan Knight in the Jets Best & Fairest count.

 

After getting a taste of VFL senior football in 2015 playing for the Seagulls against Collingwood, Football Manager Chris Dixon spoke highly of the 19 year-old.

 

"Mitch is a highly skilled footballer that is capable of playing on-ball, on a wing or up forward," said Dixon.

 

"He won't remember much of his senior debut with us this year as he was knocked out with concussion in a really courageous act."

 

"He is extremely talented and we're delighted he is in our program."

 

Norton, who played his junior football with Altona before joining the Jets, played 37 games over three seasons in the TAC Cup, where he also showed a knack around goals by kicking 52 majors. He made his VFL senior debut against Collingwood at Burbank Oval this year, as well as playing three games in Williamstown's development team which included a Qualifying Final.

 

Mitch is the brother of ex-Williamstown player, Ben Norton.
