An old friend visits Tom Watson

Saturday, October 14 – 1899
Mr. Samuel Tyzack was a welcome visitant to Tom Watson’s domicile during the past week. How they must have talked over and sighed for the old days. As a pair they brought off more successful captures than probably  any two men in England, and Tom would be the first to acknowledge that much of the fame achieved by him in the football world was owing simply and solely to the splendid assistance rendered him by Mr. Tyzack. Mr. Tyzack was fairly idolised by the old Sunderland players, and most of the credit for collecting together that glorious band of footballers belongs to him. (Sunderland Daily Echo, 14-10-1899)
