Clever Aggregation of Soccer Players from Jersey Silk Town Slated for

The clever Paterson soccer team will visit here next Saturday for an American League game against Bethlehem Steel. This will be the second clash in the league series, the Steel Workers having won the first game by the score of two goals to one. The game was played in Paterson and was one of the best exhibitions of soccer seen in this country. Both teams are much alike in style, and in clever foot work and all around team play they are superior to any teams in the circuit.

The Silk Sockers defeated the brilliant New York lineup in a league game last Sunday by the score of Six goals to three. The Paterson half-back line is rated as the best intermediate trio in the country and many good judges regard them as [. . .] for to the old Bethlehem halfback line of Murray, Campbell and Kirkpatrick, who stood out clearly above all others a few years ago.

Bethlehem will be without the services of their aggressive center forward, McNiven, who has not fully recovered from an injury received in the Brooklyn game on Thanksgiving Day. However, they will introduce a new player in the line who should soon make a name for himself in soccer circles. Tom Granger is the player in question, and he has had sufficient big league training on the other side to make him a big asset to the Bethlehem lineup. He has a reputation for locating the net and the Steel Workers sorely need a man of this stamp.
