1875 Much improved.

1875 Courageous, but lacks judgment.
Being a young player will improve.
(The Footballer 1875. p27)
1876 Does well when placed on the wings forward; speedy and a decent drop, but has not throughly graduated in the knack of running with the ball, of which he is very fond.

In his columns Frank would occasionally write about watching Carlton playing in Royal Park in the 1870's.
Frank's column is titled "The Biscuit Man" and The News' photo (below) confirms this.
