Big 80 for Eddie

Tue, 30/06/2020 - 00:31

Everyone at Glentoran wishes a very happy Birthday to lifelong Glenman Eddie Harvey, who celebrates 80 years today (30th June).

Most people will know Eddie from his many years as Chairman of the Westbourne Glentoran Supporters Club, where he led the club to great success and to its current premises in Solway Street. What people maybe don't know is that Eddie's father was a founder member of the Westbourne over 75 years ago, and through his father Eddie has followed Glentoran since he was able to walk. The Harvey devotion to the club has been passed down through the generations as his grandsons Corey and Curtis (pictured above with Eddie at the weekend) now manage both the Westbourne Clubrooms and also the matchday Premier Lounge in the Oval.

Eddie is still  very actively involved at the Westbourne, and can still be seen (and heard) from the terraces both home and away every week.

Happy 80th Birthday Eddie, from all in your extended Glentoran Family.

Le Jeu Avant Tout.
