About Joe Brough:
“Standing 5ft. 7in. and weighing 11st 2lb. Brough is well adapted physically for an inside forward, and he possesses an intelligent appreciation of the requirements of his position, that must in the near future be advantageous to his welfare.

There are possibilities about Brough, and he has only to preserve with his present ideas of placing the ball forward to his extreme wing partner to become a really first class performer. He is not so dangerous near goal as we could wish, but he understands the necessity of combining with his comrades, and with further experience, this latter weakness will, we think, quickly vanish.

His style of play is distinctly appetising, and we shall watch his subsequent career with more than ordinary feelings of interest.”
