About Harry Chambers:
“This big, weighty customer left the old South Shields Athletic Club, then a North-Eastern League club, in 1913, and has never had a rival at Anfield in all those long years. He is still the real general and genius of the attack, subtle in ball control, neat in the ball distribution, and a fine shot. May be slow nowadays, but he is still effective.”
