Former Cardiff City and Swansea City manager Frank Burrows has died at the age of 77.

Burrows managed the Bluebirds twice, first during the late 1980s and again between 1998 and 2000.

He also led the Swans between 1991 and 1995, winning the Football League Trophy in 1994.

Burrows was a popular Cardiff manager after taking over with the club in the bottom division of the Football League in 1986.

He went on to achieve promotion to the old Third Division the season after his appointment.

And, when he returned to the club in 1998, he guided the Bluebirds to promotion once again, this time reaching Division Two.


Burrows was also a much-loved figure at Portsmouth, who he managed on two occasions, while he also worked as assistant manager at West Brom.

Before his career in management, the Scot was a central defender for Raith Rovers, Scunthorpe United and Swindon Town.

My first manager. What a team that was. George Wood, Ford, Wimbleton, Gilligan, Bartlett.

Thanks for everything Frank, and, as you always put in your program notes, have a safe journey home.

He was the manager when I first began watching City in 1999. Always liked him, a sad day. RIP Frank!
