Frederick Wall Biography »
Sir Frederick Joseph Wall was an English football player and administrator. Wall played for the Royal Engineers, and after retiring became Secretary of the Football Association, a position he held from 1895 to 1934. He was knighted in 1930, and famously called Jimmy Hogan a traitor after the latter spent the duration of World War I in Europe. After retiring as FA Secretary, he was a director of Arsenal from 1934 to 1938. Wall credited his original team - the Engineers - with being the first side to play the modern passing football style known as the Combination Game. He credited the Corinthians F.C. with bringing about the later developments in the passing game.
