Ben Cross on the ball

December 4, 1920
One of the best discoveries of the season is Ben Cross, the young Burnley inside left, who helped himself to two goals against Oldham Athletic. An ex-schoolboy international, he hails from Birkenhead, where he worked as a boil-maker. He assisted Liverpool in war-time football, and has scored seven goals this season.
