The career of former Huddersfield Town player Frank Worthington will be celebrated at the Club’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Birmingham City on Saturday 23 November 2019; 3pm kick-off.
Frank played for both clubs during a playing career that nearly spanned across nearly three decades both in club and international football.
He signed for Town in 1966 and scored his first goal in the famous blue-and-white stripes of Huddersfield against West Ham United in a League Cup tie in November 1967.
Later that month, he netted his first league goal for the Terriers in a win against Queens Park Rangers on the way to an eight-goal breakout season in West Yorkshire.
Having been converted to a striker, Frank continued his goal-scoring form in the following years and topped Town’s scoring charts as the Club were promoted to the First Division in 1970.
His First Division debut came against Blackpool, a game in which he scored in as Town kicked-off their 1970/71 campaign with a 3-0 win.
After two years of First Division football with Town, he made the switch to Leicester City in 1972 and picked up all six of his England caps during his time at Filbert Street.
Frank then enjoyed spells with Bolton Wanderers and Philadelphia Fury before signing for Birmingham City in 1979.
Across three seasons at St Andrew’s, he scored 29 goals before moving to Leeds United in 1982. He played for nearly another two decades with clubs including Preston North End and Stockport County, as well as having a player-coach spell with Tranmere Rovers, before officially hanging up his boots in 1991.
Frank regularly attends games at the John Smith’s Stadium now. You can find out more information about his career inside the Club’s official match day programme, The Terrier, on Saturday.
