Frank’s Different Class

It’s not often that a genuine football legend turns up at The Wham, so it was no surprise when, after the final whistle set the seal on our FA Cup defeat to Championship high-fliers Derby, a crush of Stanley fans in the record crowd of 5,397 stayed behind, hoping for an autograph from or a…
