Another Trial for Local Goalie When Jerseymen Clash With Bethlehem

A chance to prove that he is capable of big league soccer will be presented to Johnny Horn, Bethlehem boy, on Lehigh field, North Bethlehem, on Saturday afternoon when Bethlehem resume hostilities with the Newark F. C. in an Eastern League game.

Horn had his first chance between the uprights for a major league club when he pinch hit for Beveridge, regular Bethlehem goalie, last Sunday against the same aggressive team of Jerseymen he will defend against on Saturday.

If ambition is a criterion of success Horn will make the grade. Full of fight and backed with experience garnered in two seasons as goalie of undefeated Penn State teams and one season in the Lehigh Valley Soccer League, the youngster looks like one of the best prospects ever.

The backs selected to curb the speed and cleverness of the visiting forwards are "Bill" Allan and McDonald, the newcomer, who with the few games he played for Bethlehem has not really struck his stride. A vacancy on the halfback line due to an injury of Finlayson and Watkins necessitated shifting Johnny Rollo from his forward berth to right halfback and also brought about a shakeup in the forward line.

Alec Dick, the speedy young forward who looked at his best in the wing position last Saturday, moves to inside forward with Purgavie given the wing post. Fortunately Dick is quite versatile and came to Bethlehem with the reputation of being capable of playing any of the forward positions. The brilliant speedsters, Tommy Gillespie and Johnny Jaap, as well as Archie Stark, will be in their regular positions.

The probable lineup of the two teams:

Bethlehem -- Newark

Horn -- G -- Sousa
McDonald -- RFB -- Marshall
Allan -- LFB -- Thompson
Rollo -- RHB -- McGrath
Carnihan -- CHB -- Dubienney
McGregor -- LHB -- Myles
Gillespie -- OR -- Turley
Jaap -- IR -- Cameron
Stark -- CF -- Petras
Dick -- IL -- Duggan
Purgavie - -OL -- McGowan
