South Yorkshire Times, December 25, 1948
Austin Egan, Broomhill F.C. centre-forward is attracting attention — and no wonder; he has scored in almost every match in which he has played, including five hat- tricks. Austin has gone to Hull City for a month’s trial, and in his first two games with the reserves collected another five goals, including another hat-trick.
Austin is eighteen, weighs 10 and a half stones and stands five feet eight inches high.
