The society is saddened to learn that ex-SRUSR Chairman Peter Harvey has died of cancer.
Peter was one of two ‘trios’ – he was, alongside Colin MacDonald and Steve Barr, a very influential developer of West Midlands Federation referees within Midland Group.
Secondly – and I speak from personal experience – he had exceptional clarity of thinking regarding management skills in refereeing. Peter shared that stage with Stuart Lister and Mike O’Hara, all of whom in their watcher/assessor roles could dispense volumes of advice and wisdom from the back of an envelope. Suffice to say that an hour in his company would always pass too quickly.
A lengthier appreciation will appear in due course.
Paul Daniels – Chair SRUSR Ltd.
