Another great of the amateur game lost his life last week as Arthur Parker passed away after a long illness. Arthur was an excellent player and when moving into management helped to produce many a young player and gave umpteen year’s-service to Cammell Laird FC in many roles and eventually as president. Always providing words of wisdom and encouragement to those around him, he could be relied upon to give open and frank comments regarding his favourite team and enjoyed Laird’s home games when he was able to attend.
Arthur will always be remembered as an icon of local football and will be sadly missed by all that knew him. Our sincere condolences are expressed to all his family at this very sad time.
