About Jack Reynolds:
“A remarkably smart half-back. For his inches a perfect wonder. Knew every ‘trick of the trade’, and usually showed up well in big matches. Had a happy knack of scoring at critical moments. Something of a roamer, he had the unique distinction of representing both Ireland and England in International matches. Had an eye to the humorous side of football.”
(The Villa News and Record: September 1, 1906)
