He made 185 league starts for the south-coast club, including captaining the side to a 5–2 victory over Lincoln City in the 2003 Division 3 playoff final and scoring 2 of the goals himself, before earning a move to West Ham United in 2004 for £275,000. Fletcher played in the Premier League after West Ham won promotion the season he signed for them, he had a month-long loan spell at Watford. Upon his return from Watford in October 2005, he made 12 league appearances for West Ham. Fletcher's last league game was on 7 May 2006. In the last game of the season, with Tottenham Hotspur needing a win to qualify for the Champions League, Fletcher scored the first goal in a 2-1 West Ham win with the Tottenham team affected by food poisoning, it was his only Premier League goal. On 13 May 2006, Fletcher was drafted into the West Ham team to face Liverpool in the FA Cup Final due to the suspension of Hayden Mullins; the FA Cup final proved to be his last competitive match for the Hammers, however, as he signed for Crystal Palace in that summer, for £400,000.

He was appointed as captain by manager Peter Taylor. After Neil Warnock took over, the captaincy went to Mark Hudson. Fletcher captained Wales for the first time on 28 May 2009 against Iceland. However, he was substituted after just 41 minutes after damaging his ankle ligaments. After Neil Warnock was appointed as Palace manager, Fletcher found first-team opportunities limited, starting many games on the substitutes bench, which led to him and teammate Paul Ifill being placed on the transfer list in August 2008. Fletcher was signed on loan by Nottingham Forest in October of that year due to their ever-growing injury list. However, he only made five appearances in this period and due to a problematic back injury, was sent back to Palace. Fletcher signed a month-long emergency loan deal with Plymouth Argyle on 20 February 2009, scoring on his debut against Sheffield United. A string of commanding performances led to the loan being extended a month until the end of the 2008–09 campaign. Following his release by Crystal Palace in May 2009, Fletcher signed a two-year contract with Plymouth.

Having been made captain by Paul Sturrock, he led the team in this role throughout his time as a player with the club. Fletcher extended his contract by 12 months during the summer of 2011, he retired from playing at the end of the 2011–12 season in order to focus on management. Fletcher resumed his playing career in October 2013. Prior to signing a contract he trained with the club during pre-season and spent time back at Bournemouth, he made six appearances, three in the league, before being released in January 2014. Fletcher was appointed caretaker manager of Plymouth Argyle on 19 September 2011, a day after Peter Reid was sacked by acting chairman Peter Ridsdale. Plymouth Argyle were recovering from a tulmultous 2010/11 campaign that had seen the Club docked 10 points and being served its third winding-up petition in three years, they had failed to win a game. He led the club to their first win of the season, beating Macclesfield Town 2-0; the club was taken over by Akkeron Group at the end of October and Fletcher became the club's full-time manager, having won two and drawn one of his seven games as caretaker.

Fletcher managed to guide Plymouth Argyle to League Two safety, a run of six games unbeaten between March 17 and April 11 proving critical. Beren Cross, journalist at Plymouth Live, said, "Many fans will look back on Fletcher as a crucial figure in the club’s history both now and years into the future; that campaign will forever be marked as a point of resistance in the club’s history, a season in which the rot, the slump was stopped."He signed a one-year rolling contract at the end of the 2011–12 season and retired as a player. "I have enjoyed playing. There have been highs and lows, tough days and good days, but it's on to a new era in my life," he said to The Herald. "I'm starting again and trying to build my reputation up as a manager now."Fletcher was sacked on 1 January 2013 after a run of eight defeats in 13 league games left the club 21st in the League Two table. In a tearful post-match interview with BBC Radio Devon, he said that "since I've been down here we've been through a lot, that's football really.

I might be a young manager but I know if you don't win games you don't keep your job."Fletcher was appointed youth team manager at Bournemouth on 15 January 2014 after leaving Barnet. In October 2019, Fletcher was appointed as head coach with EFL League Two club Leyton Orient, he was sacked on 14 November without a win. In September 2010, Fletcher wa

RĂ©union Premier League

The Réunion Premier League or Championnat de La Réunion de football is the top division of football on the French overseas territory of Réunion. The league is run and managed by the Réunionese Football League under the watch of the French Football Federation. Réunion Premier League was created in 1950 and the most successful club is JS Saint-Pierroise, who have won 17 league titles; the defending champions are JS Saint-Pierroise. The winner of the competition earns a berth in the CAF Champions League. In the French pyramid system, the Réunion Premier League is positioned in the Division d'Honneur, the sixth level of French football; the league has produced several professional Ligue 1 players, as well as players who have gone on to have successful careers abroad. Players such as Jean-Pierre Bade, Guillaume Hoarau, Florent Sinama-Pongolle, Dimitri Payet, Jean-Pascal Fontaine all began their careers on the island before achieving success abroad. There are 14 clubs in the Réunion Premier League. During the course of a season from March to November, each club plays the others twice, once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents, for a total of 26 games.

Like all other amateur leagues in France, the league operates using a 4–2–1 points system meaning four points for a win, two for a draw, one for a defeat. If points are equal following the season, the goal difference and goals scored determine the winner. If still equal, teams are deemed to occupy the same position. If there is a tie for the championship, for relegation, or for qualification to other competitions, a play-off match at a neutral venue decides rank; the two lowest placed teams are relegated to second division and the top two teams from the second division are promoted in their place. The Réunionese Football League runs the Coupe de la Réunion, the national cup of the territory; the organization runs a Coupe de France cup competition, independent to the Coupe de la Réunion. The Coupe de France competition serves as qualifying rounds for the actual Coupe de France; the competition lasts six rounds and the winner of the competition qualifies for the 7th round of the Coupe de France.
