Player Profile

Frame was an early Foxes legend, playing 220 league games for the club (and 19 in the FA Cup) with the same amount during wartime football. In total he dedicated almost 17 years of his career to City but in all those years and all those games he couldn't find the back of the net.

He did score at the wrong end, however, and it came at just the worst time. He made his debut in an away game at Tottenham Hotspur in October 1934 and scored an own goal with a minute to go to give Spurs a point in a 1-1 draw.

Luckily it wasn't a sign of things to come. He was signed from junior football in Glasgow and went from strength-to-strength as a Fox, debut own goal aside. He was part of the Division Two championship campaign of 1937 and featured in more World War 2 games than any other City player.

His testimonial came in 1951 and over 10,000 fans attended as the Foxes beat Derby County by the odd goal in seven. His only other club after Leicester was Rugby Town, where he was a player-coach.
