James Edward "Ted" Farmer (born January 21, 1940 in Rowley Regis) is an English former footballer. He played just four seaons of league football before being forced to retire due to injury aged 24.


Farmer joined Wolves as an amateur in 1956, and after progressing in their reserves, broke into the first team. He scored twice on his senior debut, in a 3-1 win at fc|Manchester United on 24 September 1960.

He ended the season as the club's leading scorer, with 28 goals, as they finished the league in third place. The following season saw him earn a call-up to the England Under-23 side, making a goalscoring debut in a 7-1 win over Israel. He scored a hat trick on his second cap in a 5-2 victory in Holland.

The striker broke his leg shortly afterward though, ending his 1961/62 campaign. Although he returned from his leg break, the next two seasons saw him continually affected by injuries, which ultimately caused him to retire in 1964.

After retiring from playing, he ran a pub in Dudley.
