Contemporaneous article extract[edit]

"C. Annable' Featherstone Rovers (Northern Rugby League.) C. Annable has demonstrated to his club the value of local talent. He was born in Alverthorpe (sic?) in Yorkshire, and as a youth he has time for development. He is an unorthodox worker of the scrum, for he is not merely content to get the ball but he kicks to touch to advantage, and at other times bursts round to receive a reverse pass. Though on the small side everything points to his receiving county honours."[6]
