Determined to avenge the defeat sustained at the hands of Providence on a recent visit to that place, the Bethlehem Steel soccer team concluded their work for the game yesterday afternoon and practically decided on the team.
The selection of forwards is certain to include Johnny Rollo and R. Forrest, together with Archie Stark, among the front liners, and all three of which are late acquisitions to the club. The choice for the other positions will probably be Grainger and Goldie.
One newcomer to the club will be introduced on the defensive side of the club and that is Whitey McDonald, a halfback, who is also quite adept on the forward line. With McDonald fast on the ball and accurate in shooting, the Steel Workers will threaten a six-man forward line threat.
With McDonald on the halfback line will be Bob McGregor, one of Bethlehem's defensive bulwarks, who will play at center halfback, a position held by Bill Carnihan when not indisposed. Robertson is the other man. Davy Ferguson and Jock Young, both popular favorites with Bethlehem fans, are slated as fullbacks with Carson in goal.
This lineup is probably the strongest field by the Steel Workers this season and believed much stronger than the team that lost to Providence at Providence several weeks ago. With the exception of Archie Stark, not any of the other newcomers have yet been seen in action on the home field.
Bethlehem Steel will need a strong lineup, for Sam Fletcher will most assuredly come to his former place of abode with the best club available. Providence is by no means one of the weak clubs in the circuit, but more so, one of the most dangerous contenders for the league honors. Manager Fletcher's long years of experience have qualified him for the managerial job and with this experience to back him, succeeded in gathering together a great array of brilliant soccer talent.
This will be the last home game for Bethlehem for several weeks. IN avoiding conflict with the many football games, to be played here, most of Bethlehem's early season games have been arranged on the road.
