MANCHESTER CITY & ENGLAND GOALKEEPING LEGEND FRANK SWIFT BRIEF BIOGRAPHY
Before Gordon Banks, Frank Swift could lay claim to being England's greatest goalkeeper.
A one-club man, 'Big Swifty' played for Manchester City from 1933 to 1950, and had established himself as England's number one before World War Two. Frank picked up an FA Cup winners medal in 1934, and a League winners medal in the 1936-37 season.
Frank Swift, like a later goalkeeping great, Pat Jennings, had hands like shovels, and he helped to popularise the accurate throwout to a team-mate rather than the aimless kick upfield. A showman, Frank was, though, diligent about his craft, and he studied opponents in an age when there were hardly any televised matches, and no DVDs to study.
One of the most famous examples of how an FA Cup final can affect players was when Swift collapsed towards the end of City's FA Cup win. To be fair, he was only 19 at the time!
In his first game as England captain, in 1948, Swifty inspired his side to a memorable 4-0 win in Turin against then world champions Italy. A very popular figure in the game, Frank Swift became a journalist, but he met a tragic end at Munich in the air crash that traumatised British football in 1958. He was only 43 years old.
