Postponed League Match to Be Staged on Steel Field Saturday

Forced to postpone the American Soccer League match here last Saturday, the Bethlehem Steel F. C. will meet the Newark F. C. on the coming Saturday afternoon on the Steel Field. While Bethlehem will be battling for league honors, Boston, Coats, New York Giants and Brooklyn will be engaged in National Cup affairs.

The Steelmen, semi-finalists in the National Cup, will meet the winner of the Brooklyn-Giants game the following weekend, so that the league tilt with Newark will just about put the players on edge for the important cup classic.

New Men to Play

Bethlehem welcomes the league game with Newark, for it will enable them to follow out the plan arranged for the game postponed last Saturday. Several new players are included in the [...] of the home club and the management is anxious to see how they acquit themselves in actual combat.

As a result there will be several new faces in the Bethlehem machine when they line up against the Jerseyites on Saturday afternoon. These will include Frank Harris, the left halfback, who looked like a find in the practice game on Monday afternoon and John McGraw, a goalie, who also had his initial workout in that practice game.

Gerritt Visser, the Holland Olympic champion and Internationalist was absent on Monday. However, he is most certain to get the call for the center forward berth against Newark. Stark is available and in fine fettle but it is hardly likely that with a reserve on hand the management would take a chance of injury before the cup tilt to the premier scorer of the American League.
