Paul Trollope was a utility midfielder snapped up from Coventry City in the months after Ray Wilkins had taken over from Micky Adams at Craven Cottage. The Welsh international made his debut alongside Chris Coleman in a 1-1 draw against Adams’ Brentford at Craven Cottage in December 1997 and became a regular feature in the side that quickly progressed through the league pyramid. He made more than a hundred first-team appearances for Fulham in five years, but had become a bit-part player by the time Jean Tigana took the Whites to the Premiership in his first season at the helm. Trollope played only ten games in the Division One winning 2000-01 campaign and was released on a free transfer in the following March to get regular football at Coventry City.
