Garry Flitcroft

Where is Garry Flitcroft now?

After a long Premier League career, Blackburn Rovers legend Garry Flitcroft was forced to retire in 2006 after a lack of form and persistent injuries whilst playing for Sheffield United.

Over his 15-year career he racked up nearly 400 appearances and also won 10 England under 21 caps.

In September 2011, he was named as a “core participant” in the Leveson Inquiry into the News International phone hacking scandal and was one of a number of celebrity victims who received compensation from the company in 2014.

Upon retiring from playing Flitcroft went into non-league management, first with Leigh Genesis and then with their rivals Chorley.

Teaming up with former Blackburn Rovers team mate Matt Jansen, he enjoyed huge success at the club taking them up two divisions to the Conference North during his tenure.

In July 2015 he stepped down from his role for family and business reasons but remained on the club’s board.

After buying four houses with his first signing-on fee at Manchester City, he built up a large portfolio of properties, eventually setting up an eco-friendly timber frame housing business.

Unfortunately the company entered into administration in early 2017 but Flitcroft bought the company out in May of that year and continued trading.

The company has since gone from strength to strength and are now building homes across Europe.

He now works alongside former team-mate David Dunn who has joined the company as a business consultant.
