About Gordon Hodgson:
“Another of the South African ex-amateurs, who has turned out exceptionally well for the Anfielders. Now in his fifth season, and for two seasons has been the club’s top scorer. Played centre forward last season (1928-29), where his height, weight, and ability to shoot were all excellently used. Is a dandy player who can hold his own in any company.”
