David Mitchell (born 4 April 1990) is a Scottish footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Scottish Premiership side Dundee. Mitchell has previously played for Ayr United and Stranraer.
Mitchell began his career at Ayr United, but having not featured in the first team he joined Stranraer on loan in July 2009, then made the move permanent in June 2010. He stated that his decision to make the initial loan move was to achieve his ambition of first team football which he felt he wouldn’t get at Ayr.
Mitchell was part of the club’s successful promotion campaign in 2012, when having initially lost against Albion Rovers in the play-offs, Stranraer were promoted to the Scottish Second Division due to the demise of Rangers. During the 2014–15 season, Scottish Championship side Hibernian were reported to be interested in signing Mitchell.
In June 2015, Mitchell agreed a pre-contract with Dundee. He made his debut on 20 March 2016, in the Dundee derby against Dundee United, coming on as a substitute following a red card for Scott Bain.
