Awful news, and sincere condolences to his young family in Scothern.

As well as being an obvious hero to Lincoln fans for leading us to a major final in Cardiff  (twice) he was an absolute gent, having met and spoke to him on many occasions.

RIP Big Keef - you'll be sorely missed.

apart from fordy wasn't he the first black player to play for town?so he was quite a groundbreaker - especially as the turned into a hero so quickly. just remember those long gangling legs and bizarre goals. a great buckley signing - am sure AB will have some great stories and memories.

oh, to have a keith alexander leading the line for us now.....

Just heard this sad sad news, what a great loss to his family and the beautiful game after recovering from his previous illness. Had time to speak to anyone about football was always gracious with his thoughts and comments. RIP

Gutted at this news, cannot believe it at such a young age - a Giant of a man and a true GTFC Legend.

A very un-gamely player but a key part of Alan Buckleys team here.  

I have some great memories of Big Keith in a Town shirt: a great performance for Town in an away win at Southend when they were at the top of the table and we were second or third, and will never forget the tackle/goal he scored whilst on one knee for Town at the edge of the box- always gave his all and a true fans favourite.

A great loss - RIP Big Keith

So sorry to hear the news. I have fond memories of Keith, not as a big bustling centre forward as his size would suggest, but as a very skilful wide player on the left (he always wore the number 11 shirt). His goal at Wimbledon will be my abiding memory of him. I met him a couple of times, and he was a very nice guy. Condolences to his family.

What a shock, really sad news. Was a really nice chap the one time I got to meet him as he watching his son play football against my younger brother. RIP Keith.
