In Round 4 this weekend Mitchell Trenaman plays his 100th open-age game for the Demons.
Season 2023 is Mitch’s 10th season with the Pennant Hills Demons. He is 26 years old.
Mitch’s footy career started at the Pennant Hills Junior club in 2007. Over 6 seasons (2007 -2012), he played 84 games, was a member of the Under 16 Division 3 Grand Final team (they lost) and his numerous awards included Best & Fairest in the Under 12s in 2008. He captained the Under 13s and was an U13 and U14 North West representative player.
In 2013, Mitch joined the Penno Senior club and played three seasons (49 games in all) of underage footy (U18/19). In his first season, he was a member of the Under 18 squad that won the club’s last Under 18 premiership in 2013. He played most of the season (17 games) but was unfortunately unavailable for the Grand Final due to an overseas travel commitment. What a disappointment that must have been?
In his third season, Mitch was co-captain of the U19s and received the Best Team Man award in 2015.
Mitch has been a back-man all of his career and, at the Senior Club, he has played mainly in the reserve grade side. He is a courageous, disciplined and reliable defender. When playing, Mitch is immediately recognisable by his black headgear.
However, In 2017, he made his Premier Division debut in Round 2, which unfortunately was a narrow 7 point loss to East Coast Eagles. In 2018, he played mainly with the reserve grade side and was a member of the winning premiership team in the 2018 Premier Division Reserves Grand Final.
