Ryan Harvey RIP

On Saturday 25th June, one of our fellow Saddlers, Ryan Harvey, was attacked in Blackpool in what was seemingly an unprovoked and very violent attack.

Ryan was placed into a coma and taken to Royal Preston Hospital where he was cared for and it had been hoped would recover well.

Unfortunately and very sadly, Ryan was unable to recover and was pronounced dead yesterday morning (Tue 28th June).

A page has been set up to help Ryan’s family pay any associated funeral costs and it would be amazing if the UTS family could contibute anything they can to help.

Ryan was just 22 years old, and has been taken away from his family, and his love of Walsall Football Club in such a cruel, unwarranted manner.

RIP Ryan Harvey - Forever A Saddler

Finally, not to detract from the main post in any way at all, but there were two Walsall FC supporting females that took a bit of a kicking too, and @DanG_WFC was there and took quite a bad beating too, whilst trying his best to keep Ryan awake.

I’ve seen Dan today and he’s in OK spirits at the moment but I would like to say what a credit he has been standing by his mate, when others didn’t offer to come and help or check how they were.

Poor lad, knowing he did his best and his mate still didn’t make it. He’ll be feeling awful.
