Elected Captain to Succeed Bill Carnihan, Who Did Great Work for 4 Seasons.


When the Bethlehem F. C. takes the field on Saturday afternoon to meet New Bedford in the opening American Soccer League game, the club will be paraded on the field headed by a new captain. Robert MacGregor, recognized as one of the best halfbacks in the country and a veteran of the Bethlehem championship machine, is the unanimous choice to captain the team during the coming season.

MacGregor succeeds Bill Carnihan, dashing center halfback, as captain of the team, and takes the job with hopes of enjoying the same brilliant success experience under the reign of Carnihan. The latter captained the Steelmen for four years.

The choice of captain each season rests with the management. MacGregor and Carnihan are among the oldest players in point of service with the team the former starting his fifth season. Prior to coming to Bethlehem, MacGregor starred with the Greenock-Morton team, a first division Scottish team.

The new captain is a brilliant and heady player and is usually at his best under fire. An excellent field general he is also quite popular with the players and as a leader promises to capably take the place of the successful Carnihan.
