Frederick 'Fanny' Ingram Walden Tottenham Hotspur & England 1913 -1927. Frederick 'Fanny' Ingram Walden (1888-1949). Northampton Town, Tottenham Hotspur & England 1909 to 1927. 'Fanny' Walden was born in Wellingborough and began his professional career in 1909 at Northampton Town, then playing in the Southern League. In April 1913, he was transferred to Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of £1,700. Being only 5 ft 2 in tall he was often described as a 'diminutive winger' and known for his 'darting jinking runs down the right flank'. His small stature also accounted for his nickname 'Fanny' which was in common use during his time to describe those of 'dainty physique'. He continued to play for Tottenham after the First World War, during which he served in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, the Royal Naval Air Service and the Royal Air Force. He made his most important contribution for Spurs in the team which won the Second Division title in 1920 but the following year unfortunately missed the 1921 FA Cup Final due to injury sustained in February of that season. He played in over 300 games for Spurs scoring 25 goals before leaving the club in July 1924. He returned to Northampton Town to finish his career in the 1926'27 season. Walden won the first of his two England Caps on 4 April 1914 against Scotland. The second, on 13 March 1922, was against Wales. Unsurprisingly, he holds the record for being the smallest ever footballer to represent England at national level. He also played county cricket for Northamptonshire between 1910 and 1929 and on his retirement became a first cricket umpire between 1930 and 1939. He was one of the umpires who officiated in the 1938 Test match at Lord's where Hutton scored his 364 runs.
