Aidan Fitzpatrick reckons he is going back to the future with a second spell at Queen of the South.

And the winger told how he is loving every minute of being back in Dumfries.

Fitzpatrick enjoyed a loan spell at the Doonhamers last season from English side Norwich City.

But now the 20-year-old is back at Palmerston and said: “It was an easy decision to make to come back here.

“They know how I am and I know how they are, so it really wasn’t a hard decision.

“This is the first time I’ve had playing in front of the fans and what a feeling.

“Norwich had said that I wasn’t going to get a new deal next year and that I would probably be playing in the under-23s set up.

“It’s not nice to hear, so when Queens came in I jumped at the chance to go and show what I can do.

“The manager, Allan Johnston, played in my position out wide and he said he knows what I am good at and helped me before.

“But now he wants me in different positions including up front.

“I played at number 10 and nine at Norwich when things changed so it is nothing I am not used to.

“I’m happy to play anywhere to be honest and, given the chance, I am happy to be back out there on the pitch with first team football.

“The reason I signed last time was because the manager could teach me things so it was the easiest choice to come back here.

“There are a lot of experienced other boys in the team who tell me stuff in training like when to go and when not to in situations.

“There are a few boys I know from my last time here and some that were not here last season.

“But if I end up as a striker then the assistant manager, Sandy Clark, can help me from his days up front.”

Now Fitzpatrick is hoping he can help haul the team back to winning form when they tackle Inverness Caley Thistle this weekend in their latest Championship clash.
