Club Career

Club(s) Froggatt was playing football with the RAF during his time with them, and playing his amateur football with Portsmouth FC in 1945, turning professional in September of that year. He turned down an offer from Bogota in June 1950, and then almost joined Arsenal FC on 16 September 1953, with terms agreed between the clubs, he preferred to remain with the Pompey. However, Middlesbrough FC, on 1 March 1954, agreed to pay £15,000 for Froggatt, but this was declined, but the following day, Leicester City FC also offered a £15,000 transfer fee for his services, which Froggatt duly signed. He became a player-coach at Kettering Town FC on 19 November 1957, who had paid a club record fee of £6000 for Froggatt, a day after he was considering offers from Southend United FC. He stepped up to being the player-manager the following January. He relinquished the managerial role in September 1961, carrying on as a player until the end of the 1962-63 season.
