The Whitehaven club and the wider cricket community in the county are in disbelief. It comes after county leaders Ian Denny and Ken Reid died just before Christmas.

“He was just a wonderful man who enjoyed his cricket and the local community,” said his Whitehaven cricket team-mate Arthur Brown. The club posted the following on Whitehaven’s Facebook page: “We can hardly believe we are writing this. The club learned some heartbreaking news this past weekend.

“On Friday night, Arthur Lamb, a pillar of our club, Cumbrian Cricket, and his hometown, died in his sleep. “All our thoughts are with Arthur’s family, his friends at our club and beyond, and everyone else he has supported.

Who was Arthur Lamb?

He served as a Conservative councilor for a short time on Cumbria County Council before resigning before the last election. He was secretary of the Umpires Federation and a committee member of the Cumbria Cricket League.

Arthur recently accepted a new position at Cumberland Hospital in Carlisle. Arthur previously worked at West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven. “He has brought up a generation of young people at our club and has had a significant impact on so many people in so many ways.

We have suffered a great loss, but it has not yet been fully absorbed. Arthur helped others and coached our young teams in his usual manner of patience, persistence and fun.”

A Whitehaven member wrote on Facebook: “The whole club is amazed. He made many contributions as a young man through his political ideas to Whitehaven Cricket Club, his fellow umpires, the Cumbria Cricket League, county age group teams and the local community. So sad.” A number of Cumbria Cricket League clubs as well as other umpires sent messages of condolence.

Heartbreaking news. A worthy club man, a worthy gentleman both on and off the pitch. My thoughts are with everyone at the club, his family and friends. Sleep well, Arthur

Philip McCormick

An absolute tragedy, Arthur was a gentleman and a thoroughly 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 only at Whitehaven CC but the game as a whole. RIP Lambo, one of the best.

Mike Hawkins
