About Jimmy Crabtree:
“Possessed of great speed, a fine kick, and a plucky and clever tackler, Crabtree is a first-class full-back, strong testimony to the excellence of his defensive powers being borne by the fact that in League matches fewer goals have been kicked against Burnley than any other club except Sunderland.”
