Everton legend Colin Harvey has given his approval to the latest phase of the Fans’ Forum stadium branding project which has seen the Holy Trinity immortalised in the Upper Bullens.
Harvey, who played 388 times for the Toffees, was invited to Goodison Park to meet the Fans’ Forum and get a first glimpse of the new artwork, which pays tribute to the famous triumvirate from the Blues’ side of the late 1960s and early 1970s - Harvey, Howard Kendall and Alan Ball.
And having once graced the Upper Bullens concourse as an apprentice before his football career took off, the league and FA Cup winner felt that it was a fitting location.
“On a Monday morning, it was our job to brush up there after the home games,” he said. “It wasn’t a bad job actually because you’d usually find quite a bit of money that had been dropped!
“The artwork came as a great surprise after those humbled beginnings. It’s great to see and great for my grandson to come and see it as well.”
Jason Howard of the Fans’ Forum is also pleased with the finished visuals, part of a project which has already seen artwork installed in the Park End, Main Stand and Top Balcony.
“It’s been ongoing for about 12 months and we’re starting to see the fruits of it now,” he explained. “The feedback has been really positive and hopefully we’ll get more feedback from the fans as we go forward with the other branding projects in the different parts of the ground.”
