The young right-back started in the non-League system when he was 16, having previously played for Wingate & Finchley and Hendon at youth level, and then for Cheshunt, Loughborough Dynamo and Loughborough University whilst studying.

 

According to Spearman, Mitchell played a huge part in getting him to sign for the upcoming season, telling https://www.walthamstowfc.com: “The gaffer knows exactly what he wants from the season. We got into contact and immediately spoke about the club’s ambitions. I am an attacking full-back and that’s exactly the way he wants to play. Ultimately, my goals and ambitions align with the gaffers.”

 

Spearman had found it tough going from youth football to playing in a senior team but that wealth of experience has set him up nicely for the rest of his career. “It was a hard experience. The main factor was the physicality which I found tough as a young defender. You have to be on your game all the time and you have to win your individual battles. That is something I had to learn quickly. I was lucky enough to be around experienced players who really helped me.”

 

He had also experienced playing for a top-level university team as he continued his studies. “It was different. I was training four or five days a week and playing non-League football and against other universities. On top of my studies, it was very demanding, but it was different to senior football. It felt more like academy football, especially against the other universities. The move to Loughborough Dynamo was a case of wanting to play senior football and not take a step back. I wanted to continue at a high level.”

 

He spent a year out of football following an injury which he took as an opportunity to focus on his studies. It wasn’t a bad move for the player as he finished his academic work this summer before agreeing a move to Walthamstow.

 

“It was refreshing to get back playing and I was itching to come back. I missed playing football and having that competitive nature around me. Walthamstow offered me an opportunity to align my goals whilst playing for a good club.

 

“The main target for all the players is to achieve promotion. The whole squad knows what we are working towards and the quality we have will certainly get us there. We’d also want some good cup runs, especially in the FA Cup. My personal goals will be more than 10 assists and 5 goals. If I achieve that, I’ll be happy!”
