Long serving Grimsby Town centre half - I remember seeing him partnering Ron Cockerill at centre defence mid sixties with Jimmy Thompson and Graham Taylor either side.
RIP Keith Jobling

Rest in peace fallen mariner



“To put it in gentleman’s terms if you’ve been out for a night and you’re looking for a young lady and you pull one, some weeks they’re good looking and some weeks they’re not the best. Our performance today would have been not the best looking bird but at least we got her in the taxi. She weren’t the best looking lady we ended up taking home but she was very pleasant and very nice, so thanks very much, let’s have a coffee”

I think I saw him play in a rare night match 1959-60 season. Might we have played in white shirts and red shorts? Certainly remember Ron Cockerill peppering the Pontoon with some rockets in the kickabout.

Sadly, he was only a distant hero in the Saturday Telegraph I delivered round Croxton. Dad worked Saturdays and mum only took the bus to Grimsby to buy fabric from Freemo Market or Boyes for her sewing. Seeing Keith and the team on my first visit to a football game is a special memory. RIP.

I think you’re right on the white shirts and red shorts. Maybe a couple of years later. Keith Jobling finished just before I started going.

RIP Keith.

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.

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

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.

I remember going to see his testimonial, there is a photo of Keith in the GT with Bert Trautmann, Tom Finney and Nat Lofthouse. I think Tom and Nat played about 30 minutes each but what a tribute it was for Keith that players of that stature were willing to turn up at BP on his behalf.
