Edward Joseph "Ted" Drake (16 August 1912 30 May 1995) was an English football player and manager. As a player, he first played for Southampton but made his name playing for Arsenal in the 1930s, winning two league titles and an FA Cup, as well as five caps for England. He was also a cricketer, but only ever played sparingly for Hampshire. After retiring from playing football, he became a manager, and while in charge of Chelsea he took the club to its only league title of the 20th century. Drake holds the record for the most goals scored in a top flight game in English football, scoring seven against Aston Villa in December 1935.
