About Harold Uren:
“Standing 5ft. 10in., and weighing 12st., he is a promising specimen of a well built athlete, and in his recent trials he has shown that his football abilities are of no mean order. He can centre the ball splendidly, especially when playing on the left wing, and is in command of a few tricks that enable him to baffle the attentions of the opposing defence. To reach the highest flights, however, it will be necessary for him to increase his speed, and a study of the methods of such a graceful player as Arthur Goddard, whose course of actions is determined upon before the ball reaches him, would exercise a beneficial effect also. Experience alone will bring the finished player, and Uren has shown himself deserving of further trials with the Leaguers.”
