A one-club man, first as a player, then as coach and, until the summer of 2001, as assistant manager, Frank Lampard signed professional forms at West Ham United in September 1965, the right-footed left back gradually establishing himself in The Hammers first X1. His commitment to the cause and his forward forays endeared him to the home supporters, while Lampard's work down his side's left flank also impressed the England manager, Sir Alf Ramsey, who picked the defender for the under-23 side four times during the 1971-72 season.

Already 23 years old when handed his first cap for England, one year later his debut for the senior side came in a Wembley friendly with Yugoslavia. However, for the next eight years, the defender looked likely to remain a one-cap wonder' as successive managers of the international side overlooked him. But then, in May 1980, his one-time club manager, Ron Greenwood, named him as England's no.3 for an away fixture with Australia. A memorable game for the experienced full-back, a few weeks before his international recall Frank Lampard had danced a jig of delight after heading the goal that took the Hammers to the 1980 F.A.Cup Final.

Wembley then proving to be a happy hunting ground for the second time in five years for John Lyall's team. Four seasons earlier, Frank Lampard had started every game as Lyall's men finished runners-up in the 1975-76 European Cup-Winners Cup competition.

The brother-in-law of his former team mate and ex West Ham boss, Harry Redknapp, and the uncle of the Liverpool and England midfielder, Jamie Redknapp, as a long-serving player at Upton Park, Frank Lampard racked up more than 600 first-team appearances for West Ham United before looking on from the touchline as his son and namesake, Frank Lampard Junior, emulated his achievements by winning a regular place in West Ham's first-team and playing for England.
