Spurs' young midfielder
Ross Fitzsimon played for Norwich City Reserves in their 2-1 victory
over Portsmouth on 6th May 1999. Impressing in that game, Ross signed
for Norwich on a Bosman free transfer on 1st July 1999. He was expected
to play primarily in the Reserves and Academy side with the future
aim of breaking into the first team.
Ross never established himself in the Norwich Reserves and in mid
February 2000, it was announced that he would be departing Norwich
on a free transfer. The club began circulating his name to other
Nationwide and Conference clubs in February so that he had an advantage
over those players freed at the end of the season.
In March 2000, Ross had a trial with Plymouth Argyle, joining Barrington
and Jon Sheffield
English Riveria. In August 2000, Ross played for a Notts Forest
side in a pre-season friendly at Aldershot that resulted in a 2-2
draw with Ross scoring one of the goals. Ross later had a trial
with Watford playing for their reserves in a defeat at Leicester.
He has also had a run out with Stevenage's second string. He is
currently playing for Harrow Borough in the Ryman League
