About Jack Bell:
“A forward of exceptional excellence, he, for a time, worked on the left wing, but he has gained his fame as a right wing player, where he enjoys the assistance of another Dumbarton man, Jack Taylor, and these two understand each other’s methods so well that hey certainly form one of the most formidable combinations for attack possessed by any club in the country. Very neat in his work Bell, is an uncommonly good shot, and plays with a marked intelligence.”
