About Joe Hewitt:
“Although he has played centre forward this season, this is not his favourite post. One of the outside positions, either forward or half back, would be more suitable to his abilities, and the opportunity of displaying his worth in these directions may even yet arise. At present he is proving a useful rover in the Anfield ranks, and deserves every credit for his efforts to fill the vacancy unfortunately created by the injury to Parkinson. Such a deserving, unassuming, and unselfish footballer should become a prominent personality in the game.”
