Biography


Liam Fontaine was a product of the Fulham Youth Academy but would only make a few few first team appearances for them. Instead, he found himself loaned out for the majority of his time with the London club to Yeovil Town (twice), Kilmarnock and Bristol City.

In 2006, he left Fulham again to join Bristol City but this time it was on a permanent basis.

He made well over 200 appearances for City and was part of their promotion winning team to the Championship in 2006-07.

After nine years with the club, the big defender found himself joining Yeovil Town on loan for a third time in his career before making the journey North to sign for Hibs in 2014.

His time at Hibs would prove to be highly successful. He was part of the team who won the Scottish Cup in 2016 and the Championship in 2017. He also scored a goal in the 2016 League Cup Final but he would finish on the losing team.

After suffering an ankle injury in September 2017, Fontaine would be granted a free transfer to Ross County at the end of January the following year.

Despite suffering relegation from the Premiership in his first season with County, he helped them the following year to bounce back by collecting his second Championship winners medal.

After leaving County by mutual consent in October 2020, Fontaine joined Dundee on a trial and eventually won a deal in November.

He played a key part in our Play-Off winning success, even scoring some vital goals and was awarded a new one-year deal in the summer of 2021.
