That Joe Berryman, the new acquisition to the roster of the Bethlehem Steel F. C. is destined to make good in American soccer is the firm believe of those who have seen this tall rangy fullback in action. He is of the type of player that apparently possesses all qualifications and when once thoroughly acclimated to the American style of football, seems destined to a brilliant career.
Although Berryman has played in very few games for Bethlehem he is already a favorite with the fans and looks like the man needed in strengthening the defensive department. While apparently lacking in speed, Berryman offsets this disadvantage, if it might be called that, by his excellent judgment and determination. In American soccer parlance, Berryman seems to be endowed with "football sense." His ability to kick with either foot without stopping the ball is another asset which speaks well for his success.
Chafing under idleness and with the management not in the position in the close league race to make a definite conclusion as to the skill of Ronald Cameron, a forward, the latter requested his release, which was immediately granted. The Steel Workers have a bevy of forwards, of which choice is not easily made. Cameron was one of the newer additions to the front liners and for that reason had little opportunity of breaking into a lineup to display his wares. However, he would have been retained with the club, but for the request for his release.
It is understood that when granted his release, Cameron immediately departed for Scotland, where he will probably be signed for active service with Dunbarton, a second division club with which he was affiliated before coming to Bethlehem.
The release of Cameron will not weaken the Bethlehem front line. It reduces the number, but that is practically all. The players who assume the forward positions are Archie Stark, Malcolm Goldie, Arthur Robertson, Johnny Jaap, Johnny Granger, Jim Purvis and George Forrest.
Cameron is the second player to request his release and depart for his native heath. The other was Hugh Ried, a fullback who gave as his reason for leaving prolonged inactivity and when granted his release, returned to Ireland.
