About Tom Fairfoull:
“A dour Scot from West Calder, and Liverpool’s most consistent half this season. His first season at Anfield, having been obtained from Third Lanark. Was regarded as one of the best halves in Scotland, and has fully borne out his reputation. Is a great believer in passing back to his goalkeeper in order to relieve the defence.”
(Source: Birmingham Daily Gazette: April 25, 1914)

“Stylish in his movements, and never forgetful that there are forwards in front of him, this talented Ayrshire laddie is a force to be reckoned with. Dour and resourceful, and a fearless tackler, he also takes particularly good care of accepting all the chances which may be going, and gives anything like a favourable opening, he is very seldom off the mark with his parting efforts.”
