Player Profile - Frankie Bunn (25th Aug 1992 - 1st May 1994)
Frankie Bunn will be best remembered for his record breaking six goals in the Littlewoods Cup Third Round tie against Scarborough on 25th October 1989 for Oldham Athletic ? still a record today. Bunn arrived at Oldham in December 1987 from Hull City for ?90,000 and formed an impressive strike partnership with Andy Ritchie and was a vital part of the success at Oldham which cumulated with a FA Cup Semi Final epic against Manchester United and a Littlewoods Cup Final appearance against Nottingham Forest in 1990. The Forest match was the last for Bunn as a professional footballer, a knee injury suffered earlier in the season would eventually end his career at the age of 29 after a 19-month fight and half a dozen operations.

Bunn, a former Luton Town apprentice, joined Stalybridge in the summer of 1992 making his debut as a substitute away at Stafford in August 1992, with a full scoring debut at home against Woking in the following game. He played 12 games, scoring three goals before injury ended his season prematurely. He returned for the start of the 1993/1994 season, scoring three goals in 22 appearances. A twisted knee suffered in the FA Trophy 1st Round tie at home to Colwyn Bay in January 1994 required more surgery and ended his Bower Fold career.

The likeable Brummie joined Radcliffe Borough the following season as player/coach before moving to Wigan Athletic as Community Development Officer in 1996. Two years later he joined Manchester City as Youth Team coach, ironically turning down a similar offer from Oldham to join the Maine Road outfit.

After a successful spell at Manchester City at both youth and reserve level, Bunn moved to Coventry in April 2007 to work as First Team coach alongside former Northern Ireland international Iain Dowie.
