Jabba's Comments

An inside forward with a keen eye for goal and a cracking shot, Frank Dudley made his name at Southend, joining as a 16-year-old before moving to a Leeds side undergoing some rebuilding after the war. He was top scorer in his first season at Elland Road but moved on after 18 months. He kept up his good scoring record throughout his career before his retirement in 1957.

Susan Russell says: After retiring from playing, Frank became Youth Coach at Southend United. He still lives in Southend, and regularly watches The Blues.

Dick Cunningham says: A smashing chap, an inspiration to youngsters. I played for Southend Utd colts when I was 15. Frank said I had perfect footballers feet - pity the rest of me wasnt good enough!

suzanne andrews says: Frank is my great Aunts brother in law. Met him again today and he was lovely

Jonathon Dudley says: Frank dudley was the greatest player who has ever lived

Damien Evans says: Frank Dudley will be remembered in our hearts.

joe says: Frank is my great uncle

,p>Jennifer Clubb (nee Dudley) says: Frank Dudley is my uncle and im very proud of what he has acheived on and off the pitch a truly gentle man
