A massive Dale Fan but more importantly a very, very nice man. I was very sad to hear this news yesterday, and my condolences go out to all of the Webster family. Harry's going to be missed.

Condolences to his family and friends. Don't know if I knew him, but what an absolutely brilliant length of service as a Dale fan.

Poll: How much is your support for the Royals?

This must almost certainly be the son of Frank Webster. Forty or more years ago my dad and Frank stood together at Spotland. Harry had the use of a large van and after matches was always willing to fit in anyone who needed a lift, including me occasionally. By the time we were dropped off along Halifax Road, we'd have summed up the match and heard the other division four results on the five o'clock sports report.

Harry really was a nice man, and a dedicated Dale supporter.

Sad to hear this. I never spoke to him but often saw his face around. He seemed like a nice man and a loyal Daley.

RIP.

A well kent face at Dale and the head of a big Dale supporting family, was really sad to hear this news.

I remember Harry telling us he was at the infamous Notts County game in 1949.

He'll be having a good catch up now with his pal Peter Woods.

Have just seen the photo added to the OP , recognise him, however can't remember talking to him?
Did he many years ago used to be in the corner of the old cow shed and Sandy, near to the Pie Hut?
I had an old uncle Vincent who was a Dale fan for decades, though this is going back 20-30 years, so maybe not.

Yes, the cover didn't go all the way to the corner, but I know what you mean. He stood right at the end of the Willbutts Lane End nearest to the Sandy.

He was always one of those friendly people who you see and speak to at away games, but you do not know their name.

My condolences to his family.

Grandad Harry took me to my first Dale game when I was 8 and Ive been following the lads ever since.

Id go to away games with him or in the Studds bar before a home game and he would talk to everyone! He didn't know most peoples names he just knew faces. That's was just the type of warm, friendly and caring person that he was.

Thanks so much to everyone for all of the kind things that you have said about my Grandad. It really means a lot and it just confirms what we already knew of how he was thought of.

I was away when this news was announced and only just caught up. Harry was a true gent and he loved Dale. I sit across from him in the mainstand and have chatted for years. Used to see him and his mate Peter at the reserve games too. Sadly Peter passed away a few years ago. I am so sorry to hear this news and will miss our little chats. Very sad. Condolences to his family.

Why is the Notts game still remembered?

Its always sad to hear of die hard genuine supporters passing away,supporting a club through 60/70 years is some achievement and I doff my cap to him

Dale's record attendance chalky .


and the reason for that was Notts Cheatys recent signing of england international Tommy Lawton.

A bit like Them from gigg lane signing wayne rooney.
