Just a great photograph. The USA Olympic strip for the 1924 Olympics sported by inside left Harry Farrell.
Farrell made 2 appearances in the 1924 Games at Paris. He was, at the time, a pure amateur, playing for Philadelphia's Fairhill FC.
By the time the 1928 games came around Farrell could not meet the amateur requirement- so he only got the 2 international caps. He turned professional in 1926, joining Philadelphia Field Club, but was transferred to New York Nationals after just one appearance. Nationals won the National Challenge Cup in 1928. At the beginning of the following season Farrell briefly returned to Philadelphia Field Club before moving on to Jersey City. Like a moth to a flame, Farrell was back with Philadelphia Field Club in 1929. He then retired.
A highlight of Farrell's career came in 1927-28 when he featured for Philadelphia's All-Stars ( a select team that played touring sides) against Hakoah Wien and Maccabi FC. He was also selected for West Pennsylvania All-Stars to play an Italian XI. The following day he played against the Italians again, this time for New York Nationals.
