Born 27 October 1956 in Sunderland.
Posh were fortunate to have three great goalkeepers in the 1970’s. Keith may have been the last of the great goalkeepers of the decade but his agility, reliability and consistency ensured his inclusion as a cult hero from the 1970’s. Although Keith started his career at Sunderland it wasn’t until Noel Cantwell brought him to the Posh in May 1976 did he play in the Football League.
Keith replaced Eric Steele in goal after the Posh had endured a poor run of form and he played 32 league and 2 FA Cup games in the 1976/77 season. So good was his performances for the Posh, in February 1977 Noel Cantwell sold Eric Steele to Brighton.
Keith along with Jim Barron who had joined the Posh in August 1977, the two shared goalkeeping duties in the 1977/78 season with Posh only conceding 33 goals in 46 league games.
Ever present in the 1978/79 and 1979/80 seasons, Keith missed just 1 game in the 1980/81 season before being sold to Sheffield Utd for a fee of £100,000 days before the opening game of the 1981/82 season.
In total Keith made 195 League, 10 FA Cup and 22 FL Cup appearances for the Posh.
Did you know: Keith played for Bristol City at Wembley when they won the 1986 Football League Trophy final 3-0 against Bolton Wanderers.
