Crowle, Lincolnshire born outside right Stan Foxall started his football career with Gainsborough Trinity in 1931 and made his senior debut in an FA Cup first round tie at Doncaster Rovers in November 1932. He joined Second Division club West Ham United making his Football League debut at Bradford Park Avenue in September 1934, but had only 4 outings that season, scoring a brace in a 4-5 defeat at Swansea Town in March 1935. He also scored in his only appearance of 1935-36 in a win at Port Vale in April 1936 but soon established his place in the first eleven later the same year.

He represented the London Combination against the Central League in November 1936. Unfortunately the outbreak of the Second World War in September 1939 completely disrupted his West Ham career and having scored 43 goals in 113 appearances he didn’t play again for The Hammers in senior peacetime football. He was a member of the team that won the Football League War Cup in 1940 and made 149 wartime League and cup appearances for the East London club, scoring 63 goals. However his career was cut short by a knee injury sustained in a match against Queens Park Rangers in September 1944.

He joined Southern League club Colchester United in 1948 and played two seasons for them immediately prior to their promotion to Football League status, and later played for Chelmsford City in 1950.

Stan Foxall - History

VehicleLeyland National 11351/1R — Midland Red type code: N4
B49F Leyland National Mk.I
Number473 (JOX 473P)
OperatorMidland Red West Limited, Worcester depot
New (10/75) to Midland Red OC Ltd., Birmingham. Passed (6/9/81) to Midland Red (West) Ltd., Worcester. Operator privatised (22/12/86) as Midland Red West Ltd. Withdrawn (1/91). Passed (3/94) to Hardwick (dealer), Carlton
LocationKidderminster Bus Station
DescriptionDriver Stan Foxall loads passengers for a Service 303 to Worcester.
Many Leyland Nationals including, it would seem, this one did not have a “zero” on the centre number track of the destination display. Hence, this vehicle is showing service number “3C3” to Worcester. This problem was never addressed by Midland Red West and the occasional National from Worcester depot could still be seen operating a service “3-3” in the late 1990s. Driver Foxall joined BMMO at Worcester depot in the early 1950s and later became a coach tour driver. He retired from Midland Red West in the early 1990s and sadly passed away in 2014.

Episode 1585 (24th March 1976)

Wendy Nightingale cooks Ken breakfast. She feels guilty as she's never been unfaithful before. She wonders what Hilda will say about her car being outside all night. Deirdre calls into The Kabin for aspirin, feeling off. Fred plans his move into the Rovers, feeling lucky as he's the only one of his twenty-seven work colleagues to find work after being made redundant. Betty tells Bet to keep her hands off Fred but she makes it clear she's not interested. They agree to pool their tips as they feel Fred will get more than they do. The brewery summons Fred but tell him not to tell Annie. Hilda spreads the news in the pub that Wendy's car was parked outside No.11 all night. Annie, Bet, Betty and Hilda sit down to a coffee to gossip about the implications. Ken tells Wendy he's not bothered about any gossip as she leaves. She makes no firm commitments and tells Ken to just let things happen. Richard Cresswell gets information from Warren Coates about Fred before he meets him in his office. He tells Fred that they view Annie as a friend and want to make sure that she's looked after. Annie is annoyed when Bet says she misses Stan at dinnertimes. Ena reminds Annie that it was Albert who raised the alarm when Les Grimes and Neil Foxall broke in and she unbars him. The regulars successfully get her to do the same with Stan. Rita asks Ray what's wrong with Deirdre but he denies knowing anything. Ken meets Wendy in Manchester. She asks him not to rush her but promises to call in on the way home. Cresswell calls into the Rovers and tells Annie that they care about her very much and he's therefore vetted Fred. Wendy tells Ken that Roger's coming home but she's staying with friends. He tells her that he thinks he loves her. She refuses to stay the night but says she'll see him again as she's carrying on the lectures, asking for more time to think. When a drunk, Arnie Tossell, pesters Bet and Rita, Fred evicts him. Deirdre asks Ray to leave the pub and come home. When he tries to put off doing so, she bursts into tears.
