Who is Paul Fitzpatrick?

Paul James Fitzpatrick is an English former professional footballer who scored 17 goals in 218 appearances in the Football League playing for Bolton Wanderers, Bristol City, Carlisle United, Preston North End, Leicester City, Birmingham City, Bury and Northampton Town.

Fitzpatrick was born in Liverpool. When he left school, he joined Liverpool as a trainee, and, still as a junior, spent some time with Tranmere Rovers before signing for Bolton Wanderers in March 1985. After 18 months and 14 league games, Fitzpatrick, a central defender, joined Bristol City, where he spent two years, playing in about half City's games. Carlisle United of the Fourth Division paid £40,000 for Fitzpatrick's services in October 1988. His arrival is credited with helping to "spark a revival" which raised Carlisle from 23rd place at the end of the previous season to a mid-table position in 1989. He was Player of the Season in the 1989–90 season as the club narrowly failed to reach the play-offs.
