Frank Large was deemed a legend by many different sets of fans in the 1960s and 1970s. Famed for his never-say-die attitude and fearsome goal-scoring qualities, his football career saw him star for nine clubs - including three stopovers at Northampton Town. Featuring interviews with fellow players and managers (including Sir Bobby Robson, Ron Atkinson and Graham Carr), Frank's peripatetic career is covered from Halifax in the late 1950s via QPR, Northampton, Swindon, Carlisle, Oldham, Northampton, Leicester, Fulham, Northampton, Chesterfield and Baltimore to Kettering in the mid-70s - and so, eventually, to retirement in the west of Ireland. Large won two Third Division championships before eventually breaking into the top flight with Leicester. He shone brightly but all too briefly before he was involved in Allan Clarke's record transfer from Fulham. The story of a "working-class hero, who embodied so many of the game's virtues" - lovingly told by his son, Paul.
