The Globe-Times Bethlehem

A Swing Along Athletic Row

A Long Time Until Next Fall
The soccer fans who want to fill up on the sport before hieing into retirement for the long summer months, will have their last opportunity on Saturday afternoon when the Bethlehem Steel F. C., National champions, close shop on the home field with J & P Coats as the opponents. The game will mark the close of a highly successful season, not simply because Bethlehem Steel annexed the National championship, but rather because of the enthusiasm experienced wherever soccer was played. Most encouraging was the popularity of the sport this season and which is promised when the clubs launch their 1926-27 campaigns. Attendance records were eclipsed right and left, better teams were produced and the fans treated to a high grade of soccer. With Saturday's game off the boards, fans will have to content themselves with the summer sports now in full sing. The Steelmen, as well as practically every other club, will disband for the summer, but will be called out for training the latter part of August. Preparations will be made for an early fall start.
