Frank Sharp (born 28 May 1947) is a former Scottish footballer.

Playing career

Sharp began his career at junior side Tynecastle Athletic before turning professional with Heart of Midlothian. In 1967, Sharp joined Carlisle United for a fee of £500 but struggled to hold down a regular first team place before moving to Cardiff City in 1969. Plagued by injury, Sharp just over one season at Ninian Park, his only goal coming in a 1-1 draw with Hull City in March 1970, before joining Barnsley along with Leslie Lea.

After leaving Barnsley, Sharp spent time at Grimsby Town before joining Port Vale in May 1974. He was a regular at the start of the 1974-75 season, but lost his place in November 1974. He left on a free transfer in May 1975 and moved on to Northwich Victoria.[1]
