About Harold Wadsworth:
“Wadsworth is diminutive, but he’s tricky, cunning, quite robust for his size, and has bad fault of doubling back.”
(Derby Daily Telegraph: January 27, 1928)
“Wadsworth, one of the many players Liverpool put on offer during the close season, is of small stature, but big in football craft and has a pair of twinkling feet that dazzle a half-back. Fast, he has a body swerve that deceives and his centring ability is accurate. Young, he should do Leicester a deal of good.”
(Nottingham Journal: June 21, 1924)

My Surname is Wadsworth. My grandfathers name was Walter Wadsworth who I believe came originally from the East End of London. I was wondering if there is a family link?
I must admit I have not looked too much into the history of the Wadsworth brothers, but I know that there is a family website than have quite a lot of information about them: http://www.old.ourfamilyhistory.org.uk/indiI27.html.
I will also ask around my contacts.
