Fitz Hall spent just four years with QPR, but will be mostly fondly remembered as being part of the squad that won promotion back to the top-flight after a 16-year absence.
Following spells with Barnet, Oldham, Southampton, Crystal Palace and Wigan, the centre-back made the switch to Loftus Road as part of the 2008 January transfer window – signed by Paulo Sousa.
Hall was a regular under the Portuguese and then Neil Warnock, making the bulk of his R’s appearances under the former Blades boss.
However, after a testing few months in the Premier League, Warnock was replaced by Mark Hughes, and with a host of centre-back’s now on their books, Hall’s opportunities were restricted, featuring just 14 times in the league before he was released at the end of the campaign.

But what did the defender do following his West London departure?
Hall was picked up by Championship side Watford in July 2012 and would spend his final two professional seasons at Vicarage Road – although a host of injuries saw him played 30 games before he was once more released after the conclusion of 2013-14 at the age of 33.
But Hall wouldn’t hang up his boots just then.
According to his Wikipedia page, his las action as a footballer would come in Sunday League for side Percival, based in Waltham Abbey.
Remarkably, Hall, playing upfront, marked his debut by netting a hat-trick and would end up scoring nine times during that season – which is just three fewer than he managed during his entire professional career in almost 300 appearances.
