    The Grecian Archive people are always looking for updates on people, so if anyone knows about any of our former players then lease let them know.

    Keith missed one and scored one penalty against Mansfield at SJP Sept 5th 1964 Adrian. Former Leeds keeper Alan Humphreys had Keiths 'side foot' sussed for the first one and went the right way. KH had another chance a minute from time and scored; unfortunately too late to prevent a 2-3 defeat. (att: 8,357)

    Keith was one of the nicest men you could wish to meet. Apart from playing for City I can remember him training Sandford one or two nights a week when they were, if I remember rightly, in the Old Devon and Exeter Premier league. R.I.P.

    You remember that penalty sequence Mike? Keith stuck his tongue out at the prostrate Humphreys on the second; Cold comfort though, the referee signalled full time almost immediately.

    I actually wondered if Keith had missed both penalties (?!) then realized he only missed the one. I don't remember the details but I know I was very disappointed and that we were up against it in the match. After beating Peterborough 4-2 at home it was a reminder that the old Div 3 would not be a walk in the park.

    Inappropriate perhaps, given the general tone of this thread, but it wasn’t the intention to be disrespectful to a City stalwart, far from it. Remember watching an uncompromising Keith Harvey play, City through and through. RIP Keith.

    My first season watching City was his last as a player, so I only have some vague memories of him. But clearly he is very worthy of the 'legend' tag.
    RIP Keith.

    Not unlike Cliff Bastin, Keith became seriously deaf in later life; attributed to him headering the ball!
