SSA held a minute's applause for the late Arthur Chadburn, aboard the coach he boarded for many years, on the recent trip to Accrington Stanley. This was the ground he was really looking forward to visiting and it is so sad he never made it. However SSA held the first annual Arthur Chadburn Memorial Trophy Quiz aboard this coach and amazingly the team that won the quiz were sat in the very same coach seat Arthur sat in so many times.

In a lovely touch, the winner gave the trophy straight to Arthur's local pub for them to permanently display in their glass cabinet, a fitting memorial.

Below is a photo of the trophy and an article that appeared in the Accrington programme:
