Frankie is a one-off, he comes from Halifax,
Lived life in the fast lane, he took it to the max.
Frankie had it all, in every single way,
It was poetry in motion watching Frankie play.
Frankie was a genius, he could make that leather talk,
He bought the ball to life, Frankie walked the walk.
He had an aurora about him, he stood out from the crowd,
Adored by his loyal legions, who sang his name out loud.

Played for Huddersfield, Leicester, Bolton, Birmingham & Leeds,
Sunderland, Saints & Brighton all saw Frank succeed.
Tranmere, Preston, Stockport plus Phily & Tampa Bay,
24 clubs in total all saw Frankie play.

He was a Brazilian in English form, looks and silky skill,
Bird's, fast cars, drink & drugs, life was such a thrill.
If football is a religion, Frank's a prophet,of that I have no doubt,
For God gave Frank his gifts to make Worthington stand out

About Us

ZANI was conceived in late 2008 and the fan base gradually grew by word of mouth. Key contributors came from those of the music, film and fashion industry and the voice of ZANI grew louder. So, when in 2013 investor, contributor and fan of ZANI Alan McGee* offered his support to help restyle and relaunch the site it was inevitable that traffic would increase dramatically and continues to grow. *Alan McGee co-founder of Creation Records and new label 359 Music..
