After attending Nottingham High School Frederick Chapman played for Notts Magdala FC but resigned when the club decided to leave the Football Association and support the breakaway Amateur Football Association. He then joined [Oxford City], where he as appointed captain; he also turned out for Nottingham Forest in league fixtures at fullback and centre-half. In 1910 Chapman was one of the founders of the English Wanderers, a touring club whose membership was restricted to those who had won amateur international honours. The first president was Lord Kinnaird, the captain was [Vivian Woodward] and Chapman was joint secretary. With 16 amateur caps for England, he easily qualified for this exclusive but short-lived club. During the war, Chapman was initially a gunner in the Royal Horse Artillery but later, as a major, he commanded the 2nd/1st Notts Battery in Mesopotamia. He did not resume his football career after the war, concentrating instead on his business as a director of Lord & Chapman Ltd, a ladies' blouse and gown manufacturer who had a factory in Nottingham.
