Fitzroy is an English born player who chose to represent Jamaica in international football. He, along with former teammate Paul Hall, came to Jamaica in the summer of 1997, in order to try out for the Jamaican national football team, a move that proved to be a success.

His best game for Jamaica was probably against the USA. His performance was nothing short of outstanding, ultimately earning him the Man of the Match award. He went on to represent Jamaica at the World Cup finals in France 98.

In the year of 98 Her Majesty the Queen honoured Fitzroy and selected team mates of Jamaica. This reward was granted at Buckingham Palace for service and efforts paid to the Jamaican nation team.

With over 400 appearances for club and country Fitzroy is an experienced footballer. He announced his intention to retire from football, moving abroad, taking a directorship in a property firm. But in the 2005/06 season he resumed his football career with Havant & Waterlooville and since moved to Eastleigh Football Club.
