Fleeting began his professional career with Norwich City, making only one appearance before joining Ayr United, where he stayed for six years. He went on to have play for Clyde and Greenock Morton (where he was assistant manager to Willie McLean), before joining Clyde again. He was appointed manager of Stirling Albion in the summer of 1988, before leaving the club and joining Kilmarnock as manager from 1989 to 1992.
