Frank Soo


Identity is culturally constituted. The immanence of particular events and protagonists within history are dependent upon the marginalisation and exclusion of others.

This silencing of alternative narratives acts to airbrush the marginalised and underlines the parochialism of conventional Western social and cultural history.

Frank Soo, born in Derbyshire to a Chinese mother and an English father, was a true pioneer of English football. Frank represented his country nine times between 1942-1945. During his club career, he played 326 club games over nearly 20 years, of which 173 were for top-flight club Stoke City where he was club captain.

Frank also served in the Royal Air Force in the Second World War and captained the RAF football team during this period.
