About Tom Chorlton:
“Chorlton is a most promising player, and possessing a fine turn of speed, accuracy in kicking, and any amount of pluck and determination, he should gain fame in the near future. He stands 5ft. 8in. and weighs 11st. 2lb., so that he is nicely proportioned for a footballer. As regards his versatility there can be no question, but we fancy I will be as a right full-back that he will be able to do himself full justice. He is keen on the game, anxious and eager to do his utmost for his side’s welfare, and a downright genial and unassuming individual.”
