About Johnny Holt:
“Short of stature, he appears to lose nothing in the way of ability from his lack of inches, and heads the ball away with a power and accuracy that a much taller man could not excel. Holt at his best, indeed, represents nearly the ideal centre half-back, being, always on the ball, a determined tackler, a remarkably skillful feeder of his forwards and exceedingly neat in evading a charge.”
