Kenneth Campbell in trial match


March 18, 1913
The Scottish International trial match, at Glasgow yesterday, may be written down as a hopeless failure. Far from lending any enlightenment, it landed the Scottish selectors in deeper gloom. The players, or many of them, seemed not to treat the game seriously. Some took it seriously, but they were few, and if one can mention Brownlie, Kenneth Campbell (of Liverpool), Walker, Dodds, Logan, Torrance, Wilson, Croal, and Robertson, one exhausts the list. Campbell parried like a master. The Anglo-Scots were clearly the better and particularly the faster side in the first half. The home Scots have Campbell an opportunity of showing his worth, and the Liverpool goalkeeper, by his intelligent anticipation and masterly fielding, gave the impression that one day Scotland will call on him.
