Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Fitzpatrick came through the youth system at Motherwell and made his debut against Celtic on 12 May 2004.[1]

In 2004–05, Fitzpatrick scored a last-minute winner in a Scottish League Cup semi-final against Hearts at Easter Road.[2] The 3–2 win after extra time earned Motherwell their first major final appearance since the 1991 Scottish Cup Final. Remarkably, it was his first senior goal for the club. In May 2008, Fitzpatrick signed a two-year contract extension with the Fir Park outfit.[3]

On 13 January 2011, Fitzpatrick signed a two-year deal with Highland team Ross County, after rejecting the offer of a six-month extension at Fir Park.[4]

Fitzpatrick joined the Dumfries club, Queen of the South on 19 March 2013, until the end of the season after playing as a trialist on 16 March 2013 at Gayfield Park versus Arbroath, where he played for 65 minutes.[5] On 7 April 2013, he played the full match as Queen of the South won the 2013 Scottish Challenge Cup, defeating Partick Thistle 6–5 on penalties following a 1–1 draw after extra-time.[6]

Fitzpatrick moved to Greenock Morton on 9 July 2013, after playing in a trial match against former club Motherwell on the Saturday.[7] He left the club at the end of the season in search of part-time football.[8]

On 4 June 2014, Fitzpatrick signed for Airdrieonians where he has since been made captain.[9]

International[edit]

Fitzpatrick made three appearances for the Scotland under-21 side in 2007.[10]
