About Bob Ferguson:
“Standing 5ft. 10½in. in height and weighing 12 stone. Nature has endowed him with a bulk which opposing forwards find difficult to circumvent. Strong as a lion, and active as a mouse, it is not to be wondered at that his forte is in breaking up combination – and admirable point in a centre half-back’s play.

“Abounding with an earnestness of purpose, he is a loyal club-man, and many have been glad to emulate his example. Never afraid to find the location of the goal area, he has often turned defeat into victory, and as a defender is hard to surpass. He should be a worthy successor to Alex Raisbeck.

“The very antithesis of the rolling-stone, he is nevertheless an ostentatious player, and although taking the game as serious as a judge he is a very human sort of fellow in the pavilion.”
