An absolute tragedy, Arthur was a gentleman and a decent human being. He loved nothing more than playing, watching, coaching or umpiring cricket. He had the respect of everyone in the game and his loss will be felt not just at Whitehaven CC but across the game as a whole. RIP Lambo, one of the best.
