At The ASSC Annual General Meeting in August departing treasurer Chris Durling was delighted that his final action in the role was to be able to make a donation of £2,500 to the Willow Foundation – the charity set up by Arsenal legend and Arsenal Scotland honorary president Bob Wilson OBE.

The cheque was presented to Bob before the Southampton match at the Emirates by Chairman Mike Buchanan, his son Kyle and ticket officer Martin O’Donnell. Another legendary Bob (Robert Pires) also got in on the action.
