The problem of selection

from The Villa News and Record, November 7, 1936

New players are steadily being added to our strength, and there is a general confidence that in the young players on our roll there is much talent that the exercises and training which are sedulously carried from day to day will develop. The choice of young players demands judgment of a peculiar kind, and to decide for or against a youngster on trial is not by any means to be settled by one view. It will perhaps astonish many to know that more than a hundred young players have been under the critcial eye in practice matches so far this season – and there are as many more yet to be viewed.
