With the heaviest of hearts I have to announce the tragic passing of our former director Steve Harvey. Steve has been over the bridge the last few year's,but he still popped in occasionally. He particularly helped me a lot during his time here. RIP STEVE ⚒
Steve Harvey was a good friend to the Club-he and his wife Kim were a big part of the Poole Town family during Steve's time on the board before he left to take up the role of Chairman at Hamworthy. He was a true football man , always had a twinkle in his eye and always came at all issues from a positive perspective. Non-League Football can ill afford to lose such good people. He battled his illness bravely and will be sorely missed. The Club's deepest sympathy goes out to Kim and all Steve's family.
Please excuse this intrusion from a WTFC man but our own forum has been shut down and this is probably the most appropriate place to post my condolences. Steve Harvey served on the Board at WTFC for a couple of seasons some five years ago. During that time his energy & ideas made a real difference to the Club and he gained the respect of everyone with whom he worked. He & I worked closely together and I liked him a great deal. His passing is an enormous blow not only to Hamworthy but to local non-league football in general. My condolences to his family.
A very sad day for everyone who knew Steve and particularly for his very close family. A decent, humorous and hard working Director of PTFC. Always innovative and not afraid to roll up his sleeves. RIP Steve I will miss you.
It's been too long since I last posted on this forum, but had to brush off my password to say how sorry I was to hear of the passing of Steve. He was on the board when I first came to the club in 2008/9 season and it was always nice to see him when he popped back. I remember a few years ago he was back at an evening game and the floodlights failed. Steve being a sparky was right on it, despite just being a spectator in the crowd that night. The ref was getting impatient and gave us a deadline that if the lights were not back on by a certain time, then the game would be off. That put even more pressure on Steve and only a few people actually knew were were literally about 60 seconds from having another postponement that night, when he fixed the problem. Once a Dolphin, always a Dolphin.
Just wanted to add to all the above. I knew Steve when his company did electrical work where I was working, at the same time as he was involved with Poole Town. Occasionally bumped in to him at Hamworthy. Lovely bloke. Really shocked and saddened to hear this news.
I use to be a Posh fan but now I have found true quality with the mighty Dolphins
