Biography

Signed by Nigel Best upon his return from England, Lyttle spent one relegation tarnished season at the Showgrounds in 2000/2001.

Born in Belfast, it was his performances for local youth side Star of the Sea which caught the attention of scouts from Celtic, eventually signing a professional deal at Parkhead in December 1994.

In July 1997, he was sent out on loan to Swindon Town but returned through injury shortly afterwards. Towards the end of his stay in Glasgow he won the first of eight Northern Ireland Under-21 caps against Switzerland in a friendly.

Lyttle signed a two year deal at Peterborough United then of the Third Division (fourth tier) in July 1998 and made his senior debut against Reading in the League Cup in August 1998, coming on as a late substitute for Barry Fry's side. It would be his only appearance for the 'Posh'.

He went to Kingstonian on loan in December 1999.
