Harvey joined Lakenheath Youth at the end of 2014/2015 season and hasn’t looked back since.

The 2016/2017 season has been a fantastic time for Harvey and the Lakenheath team who lifted all four of the trophies they won in their first fully competitive season.

Lakenheath were unbeaten in the Mid Norfolk Division 1 league, playing 15 games, winning 14 with only one draw, also winning the Mid Norfolk Division 1 League Cup against Reffley 3-1 after extra time followed by winning the Challenge Cup final.
