About Ephraim Longworth:
“A Lancashire lad whose abilities were not recognised until he went south. Was born at Bolton, and Liverpool secured him from Leyton three seasons ago. A consistent and reliable back, who never plays a bad game, and takes his football very seriously. A fearless tackler and a sure kick, and rare judge of the correct time to rush in.”
