Comment


"H. Crompton, half-back, always in the limelight — he was awarded the medal last year for the most improved player. Harry originally playey with North Juniors, and is 'some' driver of the automobile." (Record Emerald Hill, 22-Aug-1925 p2)

'H. Crompton (half-back) has been very consistent throughout the season, and can be classed as one of the stalwarts of the side. 'Harry' has remarkable judgment in anticipating the flight of the ball, and seldom makes a mistake. He is a storeman at the Dunlop, and plays cricket with the Ports' first eleven — a very stylish bat.' (Record Emerald Hill, 1926) 3

'CROMPTON: 'Harry' plays on the defensive, and another one of the reliables. He has remarkable judgement, and hardly missed a game during the last five years. Plays cricket with Port's first eleven and is a very good batsman.' (Record- Emerald Hill,1928)4
