"While the Rovers have lost some good men they have secured a splendid recruit in Joe Archer, one of Melbourne's cleverest juniors, who has been playing with Subiaco during the present season.
Belonging to the light-weight division much of the Barney Grecian stamp of footballer, I will be much suprised if the ex- Essendon district boy does not develop into one our top notchers before the season is over."
(Trove; Clare's Weekly Perth July 23 p16 1898)
In a season review of the Rovers club, Clare's Weekly said;
"Amongst the juniors tried Joe Archer gave a great display or two on the wing and then was off to the fields." (Blueseum presumes Kalgoorlie goldfields)
