Francis David Fielding (born 4 April 1988 in Blackburnmarker, Lancashiremarker) is an Englandmarker Under-21 international football goalkeeper. He is currently playing for Blackburn Roversmarker.

Club career

Fielding is a product of Blackburn Rovers Academy, Fielding joined League Two side Wycombe Wanderers on 28 September 2007 on a three-month loan deal alongside Bolton Wanderers Polishmarker goalkeeper Przemyslaw Kazimierczak. The deal was made due to Wycombe having injury problems with both first team goalkeepers Scott Shearer and Jamie Young. Fielding made his debut a day after signing on loan, keeping a clean sheet in a 1–0 win at Bradford City. Fielding's shot-stopping and kicking was impressive during this original spell and he quickly became a favourite among the Wycombe faithful. He produced so many good performances that his loan was extended until the end of the season on 10 January 2008 and he managed to keep his place after the return to fitness of Jamie Young.

He then joined Northampton Town on loan on 9 September.

He made his England U21 debut, replacing the injured Joe Lewis, in the 33rd minute at Bramall Lane against the Czech Republic on 18 November. His debut was notable because he had just participated in a FA Cup match with Northampton Town the day before. He then returned to Blackburn on 12 December, before joining Rochdale on loan on 6 January 2009. He recently featured in the Play Off Match against Gillingham where Rochdale failed to secure a place in the final. On February 2, Fielding extended his stay with Rochdale until the end of the 2008/2009 season.

On 29 September 2009 Fielding joined Leeds United on loan on a one-month Emergency loan. Understudy Casper Ankergren is set to play a few games after Shane Higgs was ruled out with a thigh injury. So Fielding is set to act as backup to Ankergren whilst Higgs is injured. Fielding was named as an unused substitute in Leeds' game against Carlisle. Fielding was unavailable for Leeds' JPT game against Darlington as he was called up for England U21 duty. Fielding played his first game in Leeds United colours for Leeds Reserves against Hartlepool Reserves on the 13th October. On 26 October Leeds announced they would not be renewing Fieldings loan and he returned to Blackburn.

International career

He made his England U21 debut, replacing the injured Joe Lewis, in the 33rd minute at Bramall Lane against the Czech Republic on 18 November. He was given his England Under-21 debut in the same game as former Leeds midfielder Fabian Delph. He went on to play for England U21's one more time after making his debut, leaving him on two caps.
