“I didn’t expect the No.29 to be retired, I think it’s a fantastic gesture though from the football club,” Harvey said.

“I wore it for 21 seasons, so to have no one run around in it next year will be a little bit strange when I watch the boys play.

“(I’m) obviously very privileged that the club have chosen to do that.”
