“It is curious that a player of such sterling ability should never have received recognition from the powers that be.” – Observer May 11th 1895

Reaction to the victory over Queens Park in the Scottish Cup Final

“When the intimation came that “our team” had won in such a handsome manner almost everybody who could muster a cheer and a grin at once put them in evidence. Even the women lent a hand, and helped in no small measure to make the rejoicing hearty. But it was when ‘the boys came marching home again’ from the aristocratic Ibrox that the fun began in earnest . . . As the evening wore on, the whole East End put on an air of alleged gaiety and a colour of deep carnation that would have given an unenlightened stranger the severe knock of astonishment. Bands! you ought to have seen them. They perambulated the whole district until well on in the evening, and with the aid of a liberal use of party music helped to make things hum along merrily.”
