Francis Bradshaw (born 31 May 1884) was an English professional footballer and football club manager. He played once for the England national side and also represented the Southern League and the Football League, the latter on four occasions.


Frank Bradshaw, an intelligent inside-left, was born in Sheffield and played for Oxford Street Sunday School and Sheffield Schools before joining Sheffield Wednesday as an amateur in 1904, turning professional the same year. In 1907, he played in Wednesday's FA Cup winning side thanks to an injury to regular inside-left Harry Davis. In June 1908 he played his only game for England, scoring a hat-trick as England beat Austria 11-1 in Vienna. Although he was once again selected to play Ireland the following February, he was forced to withdraw from the England squad due to injury, and was never selected again. He thus became the fifth and last (to date) player to score three goals on his solitary England appearance.[1]

Bradshaw moved to Northampton Town in the summer of 1910 for a fee of £250, having played 87 league games and scored 37 goals for Wednesday. In November 1911 he returned to the Football League with Everton, where he scored 19 goals in 66 league games. In August 1914 he moved to Woolwich Arsenal, making his Arsenal debut in a Second Division match against Glossop North End on 1 September 1914, though after a season World War I intervened. Bradshaw continued to play for Arsenal, starring in over 125 unofficial wartime matches.

By the time league football resumed in 1919 (and with Arsenal promoted to the First Division), Bradshaw had moved from inside-forward to full-back. He was a regular for Arsenal over the next four seasons, before retiring in May 1923. In addition to his wartime appearances, he played 142 league and cup games for Arsenal, scoring 14 goals. The same month he took over as manager of Aberdare Athletic, but left the cash-strapped Welsh side in April 1924 after guiding them to mid-table safety in Division Three South.
