Biography

Trent Mitton might have had little choice but to excel in hockey, which he took up at the age of five. Mitton is a name etched in Australian hockey history with Trent the latest of three generations to represent the Kookaburras. His grandfather Don Mitton represented Australia in 1983 while his father Grant played from 1983 to 1989, competing at the 1984 Olympic Games and winning World Cup gold in 1986.

Part of the Ranchi Rays in the 2016 Coal Hockey India League, the Australian forward was unable to defend their 2015 Hockey India League title alongside Ranchi teammates earlier this year.

A chef at heart, Mitton - or ‘Mitts’ - enjoys spending time in the kitchen cooking Mexican fiestas (one of his many specialities) for his housemate Nick Budgeon and partner Lexi.

A member of the Royal Perth Golf Club, he enjoys anything sports-related. Completing a sport traineeship, he worked at a high school for four years teaching various sports. Each week, Wednesday nights are dedicated to his social basketball team; a chance for Mitton and his school friends to catch up playing in their local division.

Playing alongside his older brother Joel at Wesley South in Perth has always been a highlight. Joel played for many Western Australian state teams through his days in junior hockey.
