Kettleborough , Keith I've just come across this website and am quite devastated to read of Keith's death six years ago. I didnt known until just today while reseacrhing into the Sheffield United teams of the 50s and 60s. I was a colleague of Keith's at Birkdale School until July 1994 when I retired and have very happy memories of working with him on the sports field, not just at soccer but cricket (which he was also good at!) and other activities. I also taught his sons there. He was a lovely bloke, very kind and good with the boys at the school.

Do you have any interesting, happy, or humorous memories of Keith?
If so, please let us know and we will be happy to share them with the world!
