Pen Pic

Fitz has played for a variety of different clubs, first starting at West Ham United at the youth academy. Being deemed not worthy of the first team football, Fitz was released to Barnet where he later found his way to Bob Dowie at Chesham United, brother of Rangers boss, Iain.

It wasn`t long before Iain took Bob`s recommendations and signed Fitz as manager of Oldham Athletic for 30,000. It was here that Fitz began to build a reputation as a solid centre back, and a sterling set of performances in Division 2 helped Oldham to the play-off semi-final. Paul Furlong`s mastery infront of goal to beat Fitz and bag the winner was a minor blip in an excellent season.

Southampton snapped Fitz up for 250,000, capitalising on financial dire straits at Boundary Park, Hall however failed to make the grade in the Premier League once more making only 11 appearances in an indifferent season at St. Mary`s. Dowie re-signed Hall upon becoming manager of Crystal Palace for 1,500,000, where he was given the captains armband at Selhurst Park in 2005.

Fitz then made the move back to the Premier League and Wigan in 2006, after a 3,000,000 get out clause was triggered. After some stout performances at the back for the Latics, he fell out of favour once more and could not resist the lure of W12, signing for the R`s in January 2008, making 14 starts in his first season for the R`s.

After an indifferent spell at the club under Jim Magilton, then Paul Hart - Hall was loaned out to Championship high-flyers Newcastle United until the end of the 2009-10 season. There he achieved promotion before returning to Loftus Road.

He played a good proportion of the subsequent campaign as QPR finished as Championship campaign, while having a handful of games in the top flight as Rangers left matters late to save themselves.

He was eventually released in the summer of 2012.
