GERALDTON FOOTBALLER IN PERTH.
Football critics of Perth are favorably impressed with thc abilities of Billy Thomas, formerly captain of thc Rail wa v* Club, who is now playing for East Perth. The 'West Australian' foot ball writer describes bis sround play
as perfect, his pace and passing of the highest order, whilst as a team man he had, on Saturday's form, few superiors. The 'Daily News' critic observe J that a newcomer named Thomas provcVt a valuable acquisition. The 'Worker,' in its comments on the play, said: — ''Interest always at taches to a newcomer showing great, promise. In Thomas, East Perth have a pearl of rare price. He has class stamped all over him, and the writer will be greatly disappointed if he doesn't go right to the top as a foot baller. On Saturday he was as artis tiq as Gohl, with everything in his favour except height. His was an out standing display. There was no doubt ing his class, and I can 't see how it could possibly have been a flash in the pan. He passed with the ability cf GuhL low, swift, and deadly accurate. .He spotted a loose comrade in a twink ling, ran and handled the ball like a shampion. Evervbody was asking: — 'Who's No. 7f'» The. writer also expressed the opinion that if Thomas maintained thc form he displayed on Saturday he would have strong claims for consideration for, inter-State honours. - . ?
