Born in nearby Bedford, Lil Fuccillo came through the ranks at Luton Town before making his debut with The Hatters in 1974. 

After almost immediately establishing himself in the starting line up with the Bedfordshire club, talk emerged about an international call-up with Italy. 

However, the midfielder broke his leg during a clash with Brighton & Hove Albion, halting what was exponential progress with The Hatters.

During his comeback match with Luton’s youth team, Fuccillo broke his leg again in very unfortunate circumstances.

Did Mark Tyler ever play club football abroad?

The midfielder proceeded to feature over 150 times for Luton in nine years with the club, helping the club to promotion from the Second Division in 1982. 

After not being able to agree on a new contract with Luton, Fuccillo departed for America, going to the Tulsa Roughnecks of the North American Soccer League. 

After less than a year and 19 games for the American outfit, Fuccillio returned to England, arriving at Southend United in 1983, after two years with the club who are currently in the National League, he joined Peterborough United, playing almost 100 games in just two years with Posh.

A short stint in Malta followed, with Fuccillo joining Valletta, but within a year, he was back in England. 

He proceeded to play for Cambridge United and Kettering Town upon his return, before eventually retiring at Wivenhoe Town. 

Going into a short career of coaching, Fuccillio spent a short amount of time at the helm at Peterborough, and seven years after that, he took charge at Luton, but similarly, that only lasted a short amount of time. 

Since then, Fuccillio has seen success in the scouting game, after being appointed Chief Scout as Newcastle United in 2008, before taking up a similar role at Swansea City a year later. 

The Bedford-born midfielder then joined Luton as Technical Director in 2012, before being appointed as Chief Scout at Crawley Town in 2014. 

Fuccillo now finds himself as Chief Scout at Bristol City, a role he has held for seven years.
