O’Keefe became a big fans’ favourite during his brief spell at Bloomfield Road in the mid-1980s, scoring an impressive 23 times in just 36 games.

He was also a keen supporter of the supporters’ campaign to rid the club of the Oystons, attending several meetings and taking part in marches and protests.

Indeed, Eamonn has opted to use this week’s first column to pay tribute to those supporters who boycotted in recent years.
