Show Review from the Birmingham Owl:

Under Mr. Thomas Hawkes' direction, Frank Weston introduces a new act. 'All Birmingham will soon be talking about the Burmese football players' - the most wonderful jugglers in the world, not using their hands. Special mention is made of Moung Toon and Moung Chit 'whose shoulder muscles are so finely developed that a slight twitch sends the ball to great height'. 'Their act will be a great revelation to all Association Footballers'
