Frank Stout

By Malc King

Frank Stout was a fast and clever flanker, a fitness fanatic, and a good dribbler of the ball. He first played for Gloucester and Gloucestershire at age 18, and for England the following season. In total he played 105 matches for Gloucester, 44 for the county, and 14 for England (4 of them in tandem with his elder brother, Percy). He captained England against Wales in 1904, and went on tours to Australia/New Zealand and South Africa. He won the Military Cross in WW1, but was permanently invalided by his war injuries.
