STILL United's longest serving manager, Harvey was Mr Newcastle.

Joe was United's skipper during the glory years in the 1950s, and after leaving St. James' in 1954, he went onto coach Crook, Barrow and Workington before coming back 'home' as manager in 1961 after relegation.

He single-handedly got the club back on its feet, and players like Wyn Davies, Terry Hibbitt, Jimmy Smith and Malcolm MacDonald kept the supporters entertained during his tenure.

United's Fairs Cup success in 1969 was Joe's greatest success, though he always regretted never bringing a domestic trophy back to Tyneside. The nearest he came was in 1974, when the Magpies crashed 3-0 at Wembley against Liverpool in the FA Cup Final.

Joe was always a popular figure at St. James after almost 40 years service with the club, and attended games until his death in February 1989.
