Description

Edmonton born outside left Frank Penn played for junior clubs Alston Rangers in 1913 and Vicar of Wakefield in 1914 before the First World War, and signed for Second Division Fulham in 1915, making his Football League debut against South Shields in August 1919 immediately after the War, soon establishing a regular place in the first eleven and playing for 14 seasons with his only senior club.

He played his last game for them in March 1934, against West Ham United. By then he had played 459 times for the club, at the time a club record, which has since only been surpassed by three players, and had scored 52 goals, passing double figures only once in his 15 seasons with the club, in 1928-29. After his retirement, he lent his physiotherapy skills to the club (he qualified as a physio while still playing), and worked for the club for a further 26 years, from 1939 to 1965, completing a 50 year association with The Cottagers. He was unlucky to never win a full England cap, having been picked for various wartime representative teams.
