Pritchard told fulhamfc.com: "I was with Manchester United from the age of six to 16.
"But in the end they didn't want to offer me a contract, because they brought in two Italian boys who also played right-back.
"It was an offer from a Premier League club, in the top seven, and it sounded good. When I came down to look around it met my expectations, so I signed. It was an easy decision."
