Harry Farrell (born October 2, 1902 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; died May 1980 in Mantua, New Jersey) was a U.S. soccer forward. Farrell earned two caps with the U.S. national team, both at the 1924 Summer Olympics.

American Soccer League[edit]

In 1926, Farrell joined the Philadelphia Field Club of the American Soccer League. He saw time in only one game and transferred to the New York Nationals for the 1927-1928 season.

Farrell had an exceptional exhibition season during the 1927-28 period. He represented Philadelphia's All-Star teams against the touring Hakoah Vienna in April and May 1927 - scoring in both matches. In July of the same year he was selected to play Maccabee FC and tallied a goal once more. In 1928 he appeared for the West Pennsylvania All-Stars (Philadelphia) against the visiting Italian select side on the 11th of August. The following day he traveled to New York to again play the Italians - this time suiting up for the N.Y. Nationals of the American Soccer League.

After his attempts at making the 1928 Olympic Team (denied amateur status) he was back in Philadelphia for the 1928-1929 season before moving to Jersey City for the remainder of the schedule. He finished his career with Philadelphia in the 1929 fall season.[1]

National team[edit]

The first was a 1-0 win over Estonia. The second was a loss to Uruguay in the quarterfinals. [2]
