Spott emerged from the youth of SpVgg Remscheid and moved to Fortuna Düsseldorf as a junior . The 1.85 m tall young goalkeeper was used by the DFB for the first time on August 26, 1974 in the DFB youth team in a friendly against France (2-1). In November he was part of the line-up for the “Prince Albert Tournament” in Monte Carlo, in January 1975 he took part in another tournament in Israel and Las Palmas for the “Atlantic Cup” with the DFB youth team. After five appearances in the youth team, Spott was in the DFB squad for the UEFA youth tournament in Switzerland in 1975 , but remained unused.
On March 20, 1976, a few minutes after the Bundesliga match between Rot-Weiss Essen and Hamburger SV , Spott signed a contract with Essen to act as a substitute goalkeeper behind Heinz Blasey for the 1976/77 season . In the opinion of the sports journalist Rainer Holzschuh , the commitment of the 18-year-old ridicule as an "expandable talent" emphasized that Blasey had prevailed as number one in goal, as he pushed the previous regular keeper Jürgen Rynio out of the goal. RWE was relegated from the Bundesliga in 18th place and Spott had played three games, Ulrich Granzow , who was signed up, made eight appearances behind regular goalkeeper Blasey. When he made his Bundesliga premiere on September 11, 1976, Spott shone with his parades that despite a 2-1 defeat at 1. FC Saarbrücken, he was placed in the “Eleven of the Day” of the kicker sports magazine . Roland Spott received rave reviews and was seen as a great hope for the RWE's future in the Bundesliga.
In the 1977/78 season in the 2nd Bundesliga Blasey continued to maintain the regular position in the RWE goal and Spott came back to three missions.
1978 changed ridicule for BV 08 Lüttringhausen , rose along with the ex-professionals Detlef Pirsig , Heino mouth Hagen , Norbert Sobbe , Herbert Bals and Lothar Richter from the Verbandsliga Niederrhein in the league , but was largely overshadowed by Wolfgang Hild. After the end of the 1981/82 season he was able to win the championship title in the Oberliga Nordrhein with the team.
