Carrodus, Frank I met him when I was a Grumbleweed. We had lots of fun for a few years. Last time we spoke we arranged to meet at my hotel. I waited for about 3 hours. Still waiting. It was the days before cell phones. Smashing fellow.

Carrodus, Frank Frank and I met in the mid sixties and together with a few other lads from Timperley formed the very successful local amateur club Heyes Albion FC. My father Geoff (Mickey) Warburton ex Man City, West Brom and Altrincham was our manager. He took Frank to Altrincham where he was spotted by Malcolm Alison who signed him for Man City.

Frank and I are still close friends and play crown green bowls, snooker and golf together with about a dozen ex Heyes Albion players from the sixties and seventies.

Carrodus, Frank Frank and I used to walk to to Heyes Lane primary together in the 1950s. He could run rings around everyone even at the age of 9. I only ever managed to make 1st reserve in the school team. Frank was a brilliant local hero. Everyone in Timperley was do proud he he made it so big.

Carrodus, Frank Played 5-a-side against Frank many times when we were at Stockport College around 1969-70. I remember him playing a midweek game for Man City, being marked by Ian Ure, and the following day he came in with his legs black and blue from tackles by the Scottish hardman.

Carrodus, Frank Frank was probably the fittest guy I have ever met. I played in the street with him where we both grew up playing football lamp post using a tennis ball. Great guy , modest, professional and a person who never forgot his footballing roots. A true gent!!
