SAM FLETCHER TO BE HERE ON SATURDAY
This is Enough Said for Soccer Fans Who Know History of U. S. A. Booting
STEELMEN WANT VICTORY

Sam Fletcher and his bevy of soccer exponents will be visitors to Bethlehem on Saturday afternoon. The former Bethlehem Steel fullback and manager of the Providence team will make their second visit to this city this season, with the prime object of strengthening their second place position in the American Soccer League at the expense of the Bethlehem Steel F. C.

Nipped Steelmen Once

It's just a few weeks back that Fletcher and his cohorts invaded the lair of the Bethlehem clan and returned home with probably the most cherished win of the season. And on their visit again on Saturday, prospects of duplicating their previous feat looms up as highly probable, unless the Steelmen are able to field a club that will not present a makeshift lineup.

Rollo and Goldie, the forwards on the left side, were reported to be in fairly good condition and while little hope was held out today for their inclusion in the lineup against the Giants it was said at club quarters that one or both might be able to start against Providence.

Locals To Seek Revenge

With this duo in fine fettle Bethlehem's chances of avenging the early season defeat become more probable. In recent games Goldie has displayed the best form of his career, proving decidedly dangerous as a shot and making many goals possible with his excellent centering. Unless one or the other is able to play it is possible that the management will break up its celebrated halfback line and use Whitey McDonald either on the forward line or as a fullback.

Regardless of what the lineup will be the Steel Workers will carry a strong fight tot he invading New Englanders. This will be their last and only opportunity to meet Providence on home loam and to be again defeated would establish an experience new in the history of the Steel team. Ne3ver has the same club defeated Bethlehem twice on the home grounds in the same season. The kickoff will be at 2:30.
