Robert Crawford: Reds light-weight defender


October 15, 1910
Although weighing less than ten stone, Robert Smith Crawford is a capable back, and he makes up for the deficiency in weight by resource and cleverness. A player of the Jock Maconnachie type, great things were expected from this light-weight, but he has not had too many opportunities.

On Monday against Everton he was not the least prominent of the backs, and at the present time he is the most suitable partner for Ephraim Longworth.

He kicks with plenty of power, and can tackle with the best. Crawford’s weight is given as 9st. 10lb., and his height is 5ft. 8in.
