FRANK WAYMAN 1931-2008

Former Chester forward Frank Wayman died recently after being struck by a motor cycle in Ferryhill, County Durham. Our condolences go out to his family and friends.

Frank Wayman was an adaptable outside right who joined Chester from Preston North End on the verge of the 1955/56 season. At the time the Bishop Auckland born winger was serving in the RAF at Kirkham alongside one of his Chester colleagues, goalkeeper Bobby Jones. A skilful ball player Frank made 30 Division Three North appearances and scored two goals against Darlington and Gateshead. At the end of the season he was de-mobilised from the RAF and placed on the open to transfer list at Sealand Road as he wanted to move closer to his Durham home. He signed for Darlington where he was later joined by his elder brother Charlie, a former professional with a number of clubs including Preston and Southampton. Frank only managed one appearance for Darlington before signing for non-leaguers Easington Colliery.
