Frank Richard George Lampard (born 20 September 1948) is an English former footballer.

Lampard was born in East Ham, London to Frank Richard Lampard (1920–1953) and Hilda D. Stiles (born 1928). He has a sister Gwendoline, who is a year younger than himself. He was only five years old when his father died in 1953, aged 33.[1]

He debuted for West Ham United in November 1967, and quickly established himself in his preferred left-back position.[2] He won four England Under-23 caps, and debuted for the national team against Yugoslavia in October 1972, the first of two full caps he would win. At club level, he won two FA Cups with West Ham, in 1975 and 1980, and the old second division title in 1981. By the time he left the club on a free transfer at the end of the 1984–85 season, Lampard had played 660 games, scored 22 goals and become one of the most celebrated players ever to pull on the claret and blue jersey. He wore the number 3 on his jersey.

He moved on to Southend United for the 1985–1986 season, then managed by another ex-West Ham star Bobby Moore, and made 38 appearances for the Essex club before deciding to retire. From 1994 to 2001 he returned to West Ham to serve as assistant manager under Harry Redknapp, his brother-in-law.[3] [4]

On 24 November 2008, Lampard was appointed as a football consultant to the then new Watford manager Brendan Rodgers.[5] and then followed Rodgers to Reading in June 2009 to take up a similar role at the Madejski Stadium in June 2009. [6] Lampard left Reading when Rodgers departed by mutual consent on 17 December 2009.[7]

Personal life

Lampard was married to Patricia Harris before her death on 24 April 2008 following complications from pneumonia.[8] They had three children named Natalie, Claire and Frank Jr. Frank Jr currently plays for Chelsea.

His brother-in-law is Queens Park Rangers manager Harry Redknapp.[9] He is also the uncle to former England, Liverpool, Tottenham and Southampton player Jamie Redknapp.
