Peter Fitzgerald (footballer)

Peter Fitzgerald (born 17 June 1937 in Waterford) is an Irish former professional footballer.

He was a centre forward who had made his name in Ireland with Waterford United F.C. and St Patricks Athletic before moving to Holland with Sparta Rotterdam.

He moved to Leeds United in August 1960 but played only 8 times for the club before moving on to Chester City F.C. for a fee of £3,000 a year later.

After a good two years at that club scoring 12 goals in 80 games he returned home to Ireland in November 1963 to play for Waterford, where he also had a spell as manager.

He also played five times for the Republic of Ireland national football team scoring twice in his second appearance against Norway.
