About Eddie Latheron:
“As an inside forward, who relied on science and dexterity, he could play on either wing with equal success, his lack of inches being more than balanced  by his wonderful command of the ball, his clever dribbling, and his fine shooting. His headwork, too, was remarkable. A more unselfish player rarely stepped on to the field. For others he fetched and carried industriously. His guiding motive was not to enhance his own reputation, but to play for the welfare of the side.”
