About Dick Forshaw:
“One of the most versatile players in the game is this Widnes-born man, who graduated with Gateshead St. Vincent and just missed by Middlesbrough after the war. Was then an inside right, but he can play anywhere in attack of at half. Cool, calm, and methodical, he never appears to be all out, but in front of goal is deadly accurate. Relies on position work and real ball craft for his success.”
