Paisley born full back Armour Ashe started his career at Ayrshire club Dalry Thistle but moved to Aberdeen in 1949 where he played once for the Dons before returning to his hometown and signing for Saints.

Despite staying with the club for three seasons, Ashe only played 25 matches as the defensive positions were mainly guaranteed for club heroes David Lapsley and Jimmy Drinkwater before the latter returned to England and Willie Cunningham took over at left back.

This lack of opportunities persuaded Ashe to leave Paisley again, this time moving to England with Stockport County however it would be his time at Accrington Stanley which would define the tough tackling full back’s career where he stayed 5 years and made almost 200 appearances before finishing his playing days at Southport, Gateshead and non-league Horwich RMI.

Arthur remained in England after his career finished in 1962, however the Buddie sadly passed away in the Lancashire town Haslingden in 1968 aged just 42.
