Answering my own question here.

‘It’s important to stress at the outset that compensation is not due in lieu of the transfer fee that would be payable if the player were under contract. The compensation is of an entirely different nature and the player’s perceived ‘market value’ and transfer fee comparables are irrelevant. Instead, the compensation is payable solely to compensate the former club for its training and development of the player, the rationale being that clubs should be rewarded for bringing through talent and incentivised to continue doing so.’

Well considering he was entirely our contracted player previous to signing from youth to senior team, this should mean we're due more than if we purchased him.

Frank was a relative of my grandfather and this morning learnt of the very sad news. Frank had been suffering with dementia for a couple of years which had been getting progressively worse. However, he still loved to talk about football and Swindon Town, he still had such a vivid memory of football in the past. Frank is a Town legend who loved the club and hopefully the club can do something to recognise and remember him on the weekend. RIP Frank.

Not being arsey, but it would be nice if the thread title spelt his name properly.

Every one of those ‘69 players earns the right to be called legend.

He was a hard fucker.

RIP, Frank.

Sad news.

Frank played in the first Town game I ever went to (as a 6 year old) in February 1976. While I have little recollection of the game, he was part of a team and a club I fell in love with that day.

What centre halves we had in those halcyon days! Mel Nurse and then the definitive 'craggy Scot': Frank Burrows. Even better than Mel! Sweet memories. I'll look at my Wembley programme tonight over a pint and remember Frank Burrows - STFC legend.

What a guy. Brilliant defender, tough as nails.
Frank and Stan Harland was playing when I first went to the.County Ground. The Town End smelt of skinheads and stale tobacco smoke and the guy with the tea urn sold a hot drink that was nothing like tea.
Fast forward a couple of decades and I'm swanning round Sanford airport in an old Town shirt and this old boy steps up and says
"You a Swindon fan?" "Yep" says I. " I used to play for them" said the Jock " oh and who are you then?"
"Burrows" said he. I went weak at the knees like you do when you meet your hero's.
Never happened before and it's never happened since.
Top bloke.
