About Dick Morris:
“He is very clever with the ball, passes well, and infuses any amount of dash into his work. Did he boast but a few more inches he would be an ideal forward. Inside left is his favourite position, and with youth on his side, he should become a useful player. Morris is steady, well educated, and accomplished.”
