The Globe -- Bethlehem
Thursday, April 10, 1919
Soccer at Steel Plant

Bethlehem Steel will not have any game this weekend but will play a practice game at 2 o'clock on Saturday afternoon in preparation for the U. S. F. A. final game at Fall River, Saturday, the 19th. All the players are in good condition with the exception of Fletcher who is still suffering from the injury he received in the game with the Goodyear Rubber & Tire Company. At 3 o'clock on Saturday the Cross Roads and North Ends will meet in the replay of the Wilbur Cup Final and if necessary extra time will be played.


Paterson F. C. is undecided as to whether Broadbent or Post is the best man for the right fullback position. Both men play a robust game but it is probable that Broadbent will be given the position as he has played the majority of the games this season and is in better physical condition than Post, who has not fully recovered from a thigh wound received in France while with the A. E. F.

Interest in the National Final at Fall River has increased since the official announcement from the office of Secretary Cahill that the winning team will be selected to tour Norway, Sweden and Denmark and both teams will bend every effort toward getting in the best possible condition for the struggle.

Bethlehem Steel has been national champion three times in the past four years and the players are beginning to feel that the cup is their personal property, but Manager Vandewege, of the Paterson team, states that on this occasion he will present a team capable of breaking the Bethlehem monopoly.
