Former Steel Player is Making a Great Hit Over the Pond

The ambition of every young soccer expert in the old country is to aspire to International honors and few achieve that recognition until after several seasons of active service. However, there is one youngster still in his teens for a season before returning to his native heath sported the colors of the Bethlehem Steel soccer teem, who already has been honored and will probably be again chosen to represent his country in the most important of international clashes.

That individual is Alec Jackson, a former forward on the Bethlehem Steel team, who most frequently played an inside position, but also on several occasions proved equally as adept as an outside forward. Jackson is still in his teens and in his success if the present season is a criterion of what is to follow, the former Bethlehem Steel Worker bids fair to have his game inscribed with the greatest players in European football.

Last season Alec Jackson, with his brother Walter, the latter a center forward, were important cogs in the Bethlehem forward line. Walter, more seasoned, impressed as big league timber but more than once the work of his younger brother was marveled at and soccer critics predicted just the career on which he is started. After a season with Bethlehem the brothers decided to visit their home in Scotland and upon their arrival decided to remain there. Both in big league soccer, but Alec, the most favorably improved.
