I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

Sad to see this. Keith more or less took over from Allenby Chilton at centre half and was a fixture in that position for several seasons. He was the perfect centre half, good tackler, strong in the air and he led by example so the perfect captain as well later on.

In the early 60s he was part of an all-local half back line with Duncan Welbourne and Tony Knights that was an echo of the famous pre-war one. Then he partnered Ron Cockerill and Brian Clifton at times. Keith was Mr Reliable. I seem to think he suffered an injury late in his career and this may eventually have hastened his departure in 1968 when he went on to play and manage at Boston for several seasons in the 70s.

All my life, though some have changed
Some forever, not for better
Some have gone, and some remain
All these places had their moments
With lovers and friends, I still can recall
Some are dead, and some are living
In my life, I've loved them all."

Wasn't Johnny Pearce part of the local back line? I thought Duncan Welbourne was from Scunthorpe.

You are right. I should have looked it up! He was the original and then had a broken leg or something and Welbourne came in. Duncan was indeed born in Scunny  but he came through Town ranks didn’t he?

Yes, Keith was one of a family of three brothers brought up in New Waltham, when
it was then still a small village.

Like most of us young lads in the post-war years he learnt his trade by kicking a
ball ( when we could get one ) around on the local farmer's field dodging around
the cow muck which was in plentyful supply.

After leaving school he went on to play for the village team before joining Town.

A fine sportsman and a pleasant and modest man.

My thoughts are with his loved ones. R.I P Keith

I can see him playing as if I saw him yesterday.

A stalwart and a lovely man.

RIP Keith.

Solid and dependable. Great club servant, and one of my first memories was watching the team recently relegated from the old Second Division in 1962-3.
