Peter Harvey R.I.P.

Many of you will have known Peter, a long time watcher with Staffordshire and the Federation. He had been battling his second bout of cancer but last night, sadly, he lost the battle and died.  He had been relatively well recently and was in the pub just three weeks ago, but then had been back in hospital for a few days.  On the positive side, as he always said, he had fourteen extra years of a full life, after his first fight with cancer, which was a bonus for him and his family.

  1. Many North Midlands’ Referees who went on “to better things” have Peter Harvey to thank for bringing them through the hurdle of Midland Group or Level 5 refereeing. Peter worked hard behind the scenes to ensure that our own and Staffordshire referees had their name mentioned “in the right quarters”. He was a regular on the touchline giving freely of his time and experience to make sure that our potential stars of the future had reports from him in their portfolio. He was held in such respect that his support generally eased the path of progression. He will be greatly missed by the Federation.
