  Goalkeeper Frank was signed from Merseyside neighbours Tranmere Rovers in September 1971 as cover for Ray Clemence. Injury to the club's first-choice 'keeper meant that Lane was thrown in at the deep end for his league debut at Derby on the 2nd of September 1972. However, he unfortunately distinguished himself for all the wrong reasons by safely catching a deep cross from Alan Hinton and then stepping backwards over his own goal-line! Despite this 'howler', the injury situation with Clemence meant that Frank kept his place for the League Cup tie at Carlisle United 3 days later. There were no further mishaps in a 1-1 draw but Frank never played a first-team match for the club again. After a long and frustrating period of reserve-team football he was eventually transferred to Notts County in July 1975.
