A few lines about Ronald Orr

September 20, 1902
Ronald Orr, who plays inside right for Newcastle United, may not win the lavish encomiums commanded by the genius of McColl; he may not be superlatively clever like that old Tynesider Peddie, yet he is one of the most valuable forwards the northern club have had.

Stamina is essential in League football, Sunderland’s success furnishing a striking instance thereof, and in this quality Orr is exceedingly strong.

If you have stars like McColl and Stewart, who rely chiefly on skill and speed, it is important that they should have helpers willing to do most of the vigorous work; equally necessary is it that their associates should play them unselfishly, and here, too, Orr is all that could be desired.

He reminds one of Arthur Capes and Peter Somers in his willingness to play for his comrades, and like them he passes with great precision.
(Lancashire Evening Post: September 20, 1902)
