Star vs. Star in Dribbling Clash
Star vs. star will be the general run of affairs when the Bethlehem Steel F. C. line up against the Brooklyn Wanderers in an American League game on the Bethlehem Steel field on Saturday afternoon. Brooklyn includes in its lineup many players of international fame, not forgetting the brilliant Johnny Nelson, the season's center forward sensation. Bethlehem, too, has its bevy of players of first magnitude, all of whom have been tried and not found wanting. An array of talent which has proven thus far this season that it is at its best when opposing the strongest teams in the circuit. A grand battle should most certainly ensue, the kind that is certain to convert the lukewarm observer into a rabid dribbling fan. As a soccer attraction the game looms up as one of the season's classics and a game that promises to swing a wicked punch to the pennant aspirations of the losing team.
Either Fall River or Boston
Two or three lines in an English sporting paper have created quite a flurry among the soccer moguls interested in the American Soccer League. These two or three lines convey the information that Croft, a forward, and star international player with Ireland, is headed for the United States, with destination somewhere in Massachusetts. Croft, by the way recently played with Ireland against Scotland and feature throughout the game. What mostly concerns the American League magnate is what point of destination Croft is headed for. We will venture to advance two guesses, Boston or Fall River with the latter club most probable since Sam Marks, major domo of the Fall River eleven is at present hobnobbing with European soccer talent. Jack Evans, a full fledged Bethlehemite, was formerly a teammate of the internationally famed Croft.
