Frank Edward Woolley (27 May 1887 Tonbridge Kent – 18 October 1978 Chester Nova Scotia Canada) was an English cricketer one of the finest all-rounders the game has seen. He played under fourteen different captains for England a record in Test cricket. In the first over of his innings perhaps there had been an exquisite off-drive followed by a perfect cut then an effortless leg-glide.
He is also the only non-wicket-keeper to have held more than 1000 catches. In a career lasting more than thirty years he scored more first-class runs than anyone but Sir Jack Hobbs and took over 2000 wickets at an average of under 20.
