Staff Biography

Tom Frame (Centre half, 1926-32) - Tom was a miner who came to Central Park from Burnbank Athletic. After a loan spell with Lochgelly United, he proved a most popular and versatile player at Cowdenbeath. He performed with distinction at both right-back and outside-right as well as in his normal centre-half spot. In 1930/31, Tommy was on the verge of international recognition playing in 2 Scottish International trial matches. In 1932, ex-Cowden boss Scott Duncan signed Tom Frame for Manchester United for a 1,000 fee. Tommy had made 161 1st Division appearances for 'the Miners' and made a further 51 League appearances at Old Trafford until a broken leg ended his Old Trafford career. After his Manchester United stint, Tommy played for Southport, Bridgend Town, Rhyl and Babcox & Wilcox. Tommy Frame was perhaps the finest centre-half ever to wear a Cowdenbeath jersey. In 1949, he was a delighted spectator at Ibrox when Cowden defeated Rangers 3-2 in the League Cup quarter final. Tom died in Paisley in 1987.
