Description

London born inside forward Frank Burrill joined local club West Ham United in 1911 and made his Southern League debut in March 1912 against Queens Park Rangers. He scored twice in 17 matches before the onset of the First World War forced the suspension of peacetime football, and after the War he signed for Southend United in 1919. A year later Second Division club Wolverhampton Wanderers paid £800 for his signature and he made his Football League debut at Fulham in August 1920.

That first season saw Wolves go on a Cup run that would see them narrowly lose the 1921 FA Cup Final to Tottenham Hotspur, and Burrill played in 7 cup ties including the Final. After 17 goals for Wolves in 69 appearances, he moved to Charlton Athletic in the summer of 1923, spending a season at The Valley and scoring 4 times in 15 games. The following season he returned to the Midlands with Walsall, for whom he 14 goals in 40 appearances in the 1924-25 season, when he was Walsall’s top goalscorer in the campaign, before retiring at the season end.
