Large, Frank My father Paul Winterbottom grew up with Frank, attended Ingram Road school in Leeds and played in the highly successful football team together. My dad still marvels at how good a footballer and tough Frank was.

Large, Frank Frank was playing for Kettering in 1975 against Wimbledon when Roger Connell, Wimbledon's bearded 6 foot 3inch striker, came charging in to get involved in a scuffle between Large and Lucas from Wimbledon, only for Large to catch him with a beautiful left hook which put him down! Large received a standing ovation from the home crowd as he was walking off the pitch having been dismissed by the ref. Great memories for all that were there!
