Mitchell James Cole (born 6 October 1985) is an English footballer who plays for Hitchin Town. Cole was forced to retire from professional football in 2011 as a result of a deteriorating heart condition that meant it was dangerous for him to continue playing competitive football.

Cole started his career at West Ham United, but was released in 2004. He joined Grays Athletic shortly after, and enjoyed a successful season with the club winning the Conference South title, as well as the FA Trophy. He joined Southend United in 2005, spending a year and a half at the club before signing for Stevenage for an undisclosed fee in January 2007.

Cole's tenure at Stevenage was a successsful one, scoring in the first ever competitive final at the new Wembley Stadium as Stevenage beat Kidderminster Harriers to lift the FA Trophy in May 2007. He also helped the club on the way to winning the FA Trophy once again in May 2009. Cole was part of the club's successful 2009 10 campaign, as Stevenage secured promotion to the Football League for the first time in the club's history. In June 2010, Cole signed for League Two side Oxford United, playing a handful of games before retiring from professional football in February 2011. Ahead of the 2011 12 campaign, Cole played for Stotfold, playing one competitive game for the club in August 2011. Shortly after, he joined Hitchin Town of the Southern League Premier Division.
