Whether Reid will be signed or not depends largely on his showing, although players, who are familiar with the work of the newcomer, have expressed a confidence in his ability as an exponent of soccer.
Ried, by the way, does not come to Bethlehem entirely a stranger, for Jack Evans, a halfback and John McCormick, a goalie, and the latter a recent acquisition of the club, are intimate friends of Reid, and both played under the same colors which Reid represented in Ireland.
The recent arrival has left fullback in Ireland starred at that position for the Glentoren, a first division club in the Irish League. He is twenty years old, stands about 5 feet 9 inches and weights in the neighborhood of 180 pounds.
Reid was made acquainted with the locker room at the Bethlehem Steel gymnasium and will get out for practice with the Steel Workers this week. Probably if he becomes quickly acclimated to the conditions in American and the style of play resorted to here, he may be included in the Bethlehem lineup for an early trial.
In addition to being quite proficient in soccer, it is understood that Reid is also no mean golfer and can make any of the boys on the team step.
