I would like to add my own happorth – or should it be tenner to the passing of dear Arthur. What you won’t read in the obits is that he loved a flutter on the golf. His greatest punt was backing Webb Simpson at 66-1. In our regular calls he would say he backed the winner but it was usually on the third day at 3-1. We would talk of form and who was worth backing, who not. After a game of his beloved Liverpool he would be watching the PGA.
It’s become a cliche to term someone who has passed as a true gentleman but that Arthur surely was. He was also good at picking winner of the classics in horse racing. Arthur may you have may happy betting conversations with the Senior Steward in the Sky.
