Jabba's Comments

Centre-forward who started his career with Manchester United but was released to non-league Witton Albion before his league career got underway. After a productive spell at Wrexham he was picked up by Leeds but he found his position at centre forward soon occupied by a certain player by the name of John Charles, so he moved on soon after.

Emma Fidler says: He is my Grandpa.

Jack Fidler says: Made 1 appearance for Man.U v Brighton scored only goal ! He aint heavy he's my Brother

Jack Fidler says: Might consider, but remember both Frank and I are, and always have been, Manchester City supporters !

Jack Fidler says: Frank was educated at Windermere Grammar School, where a certain Major Buckley (Wolves Manager) took an interest, hence when Major Buckley managed Leeds, he was keen to sign him - do you want more history ?

John Williamson says: I saw Frank Fidler play for Hereford United on many occasions. He was with Hereford from 1957 to 1960 and scored 63 goals in 105 games. He was in the Hereford side that beat Queens Park Rangers 6-1 in an FA Cup game - the record victory by a non-league side against a Football League side in the competition. Frank didn't score that day, but as his record shows he was a prolific scorer in his time at Edgar Street. In those days the record books weren't so accurate (no Rothmans Yearbooks then), and I believe that when he signed for Hereford he was said to be aged 28 !

Michael Manning says: Frank Fidler is my next door neighbour.

Louise Fidler says: He is my fantastic grandpa! I think its great that he has played for so many football teams, he is my claim to fame!
