Player profile

Forward Kyle was selected in four of the first five League matches of the 1899/00 season, but lost his place to John Walker and didn't figure for the club again, except for one further appearance in the FA Cup replay with Stoke City at Anfield on 1 February 1900. Kyle was a much-travelled player who stayed usually for a short while at each place as he was beset with disciplinary problems, more than once thrown out of a club after a dispute with a teammate. His brief stay at Watford ended because of “utterly disgraceful and demoralising conduct," according to the West Herts Post. Kyle's most prolific spell came at first division Arsenal from 1906-1908 where he scored 23 goals in 60 appearances.
