Joseph Stanley "Stan" Foxall (8 September 1914 – 12 August 1991) was an English footballer who played in The Football League as a forward.


Born in Crowle, Lincolnshire, Foxall had been playing football at Gainsborough Trinity, where he spent three seasons, before being signed by West Ham United in 1934.

He represented the London Combination against the Central League in November 1936.

Foxall could operate anywhere along the forward line, and was often moved from the right wing to a more central role, swapping with Sam Small, by Charlie Paynter. He was a member of the team that won the Football League War Cup in 1940.

Foxall made 149 war-time league and cup appearances for the east London club, scoring 63 goals. His career was cut short by a knee injury sustained in a game against Queens Park Rangers in September 1944.

He subsequently joined Southern Football League side Colchester United in 1948, where he spent two seasons, helping the club to promotion to the football league.[1]
