David Flitcroft (born January 14, 1974, Bolton) is a former professional footballer who is now assistant manager at Rochdale. He is a younger brother of the former Blackburn Rovers and Manchester City player Garry Flitcroft.

Flitcroft began his career as an apprentice with Preston North End, who he signed professional forms with in May 1992. He was to spend the following season briefly involved in the first-team at Deepdale, but after a loan spell with Lincoln City, he was allowed to join Chester City in December 1993. Flitcroft was to make eight appearances as Chester pipped Preston to promotion from Division Three. Apart from some long spells out injured, Flitcroft was a regular in the Chester midfield until the end of the 1998–99 season when he rejected a new contract and joined Rochdale.

In four years at Spotland, Flitcroft helped Rochdale qualify for the Division Three play-offs in 2001–02 and reach the FA Cup fifth round the following season. He switched to Macclesfield Town in July 2003 before moving on again, to fellow north-west side Bury just six months later. He was to spend three years as a regular with the Shakers, making exactly 100 league appearances until he joined non-leaguers Hyde United.

But Flitcroft returned to Rochdale as assistant manager to Keith Hill midway through the 2006–07 season [1]. Towards the end of the 2008–09 season Flitcroft was required to dig out his playing boots again, and came on as sub in the last scheduled game of the season at home to fellow play off rivals Gillingham.
