Biography

Having originally come in as a tenacious, defensively sound right-back, the former Under-18 captain now runs out as a ball-playing central midfielder and one that is capable of dictating a game with his drive and fine range of passing.

He spent 10 years at former club Manchester United, but the Red Devils’ decision to release the player has proven to be to Fulham’s gain as Pritchard helped our Academy to some of its most successful ever seasons.

Technically gifted, his unquestionable discipline permits the creativity and flair of his team-mates to come to the fore. Having impressed in the centre of the Development Squad’s defence, Pritchard’s versatility and commitment will be vital as he progresses through his career. 

In February 2013, Pritchard joined Norwegian side Tromsø until 29th August 2013 and he has gone on to become a regular in the side, with his form prompting an extension until the end of December. He has since returned to SW6.
