Jabba's Comments

Played a handful of games for Leeds after playing in non-league football in Cheshire. He appeared for England in a services international, but that was the height of his recognition as he continued his career in the lower divisions. He died in 1993.

Trevor Frost (his grandson) says: the transfer fee that was paid for Desmond Frost from Leeds to Congleton Town Football Club was used to build their ground. He was also renowned for his heading ability.

Anthony Frost (yet another grandson) says: From what my dad has told me my grandad was a very good player. I never saw my grandad play from what I can remember but from what I have been told he was a good player.
