Fabrice Pancrate (French pronunciation: ​[fabʁis pɑ̃ˈkʁat]; born 2 May 1980 in Paris) is a retired French professional football player.

Club career[edit]

Pancrate started his professional career in Louhans-Cuiseaux in 1999 where he played two matches. He then went to Guingamp from 2000 until 2002 playing six matches. After a brief two-year spell at Guingamp he transferred to Le Mans where he scored eight times in 64 appearances. On 2 August 2005, Pancrate was sold to Paris Saint-Germain for £2,000,000 and played 91 matches, scoring 10 in the domestic league. In 2007 he went on loan from February until May to Real Betis in the Spanish La Liga playing his first La Liga match against Athletic Bilbao on 4 February.[1] Pancrate was again sent on loan for the 2007/08 season this time to Sochaux. After five years he was released by Paris Saint-Germain.

Newcastle United[edit]

On 21 November 2009, Pancrate signed a contract with Newcastle until the end of the season with an option to extend. He was given the number 21 shirt. In January 2010 Newcastle signed up fellow right winger Wayne Routledge from Queens Park Rangers on a long-term deal, putting Pancrate's future in doubt with many Toon fans doubting his ability[2] Pancrate made his debut for Newcastle coming on as a substitute in the 3–0 win over Swansea City. He scored his first goal, after producing an impressive bit of skill before mullering the ball in off the crossbar in a 2–0 home victory over Watford after coming on as a substitute on 5 December 2009.[3] Pancrate has also set up goals for Ryan Taylor in games against Coventry City and Preston North End.

Pancrate was released at the end of the season.
