Dennis John Fidler (born 22 June 1938) is an English former footballer.

Playing career

Fidler played for Manchester United as a youth, but never played first team football. He signed amateur forms with cross-town rivals Manchester City in 1956, and turned professional the following year.[1] He made his senior debut in October 1957, playing outside-forward in a 2–2 draw with Luton Town. Fidler took the place of Paddy Fagan, who had been away on international duty.[2] Fagan returned in the next match, and Fidler had to wait over a year to receive another opportunity, a four game run in place of Bobby Johnstone.[3] During this spell he scored his first senior goal in a 4–0 win over Leeds United at Elland Road. In February 1959 he made his final appearance for the club, against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Fidler joined Port Vale in May 1960. He scored on his debut, in a 3–1 defeat at Bury on 27 August 1960 and played regular football until he was dropped in September 1961. He was sold on to Grimsby Town for £2,000 the next month and later played for Halifax Town, Darlington and Macclesfield Town.[4] After retiring from football he worked in a fish-and-chip shop, and emigrated to Italy in 1990.[1]
