The Frank Soo Documentary

Kirkby Diamond sponsors Local Sports Mix

On this week’s Local Sports Mix from 7pm we have all the latest local sports results & news.

Then from 7.20pm Lewis Peers will be presenting his excellent documentary on Frank Soo, the forgotten footballer for it’s Radio Premier.

Frank Soo was an English professional football player and manager of mixed Chinese and English parentage.

He was the first player of Chinese origin to play in the English Football League, and the first player of an ethnic minority background to represent England, though in unofficial wartime matches.

Plus Frank managed St Albans City FC in 1950.

But sadly history seems to have forgotten Frank.

Learn more by listening to Lewis’ excellent documentary that he produced for his university degree.
