The Weekly Times October 05 1918 (p21);
"Constable Jack Woolley, who played for the Carlton Football Club last season, will be seen in action again on the track this season. Some years ago, when Russell Watson, the brilliant amateur middle distance champion was training on the Albert ground, Woolley proved a useful factor in Watson's work, for he frequently went out and made the pace for him."
