Mitchell "Mitch" Nichols (born May 1, 1989 in Southport ) is an Australian football player in the service of the Japanese club Cerezo Osaka .

Club career

Nichols signed his first professional contract with Queensland Roar in 2007 , having previously attracted attention as a player for the Palm Beach Sharks in the Brisbane Premier League . In his first two seasons at Roar, he was mainly used as a substitute. It was not until December 28, 2008 that he made his starting line-up debut against Wellington Phoenix. In the following weeks he kept his place in the starting line-up and scored two goals in the playoff games against the Central Coast Mariners before the team failed in the Preliminary Final at Adelaide United.

In the summer of 2013 he announced his move to league rivals Melbourne Victory . After only 14 league appearances and three goals Nichols moved to the J. League Division 1 to Cerezo Osaka .

National team

Nichols has been a regular feature of the Australian U-20 team since 2007 . In 2008 he took part as a regular player at the U-19 Asian Cup in Saudi Arabia. In the quarter-finals, he scored both goals in a 2-1 win over North Korea and thus secured his team qualification for the 2009 Junior World Cup in Egypt.

In March 2009, Nichols made his debut against Kuwait in qualifying for the 2011 Asian Cup in the Australian senior team .
