Striker Keith enjoyed a brief loan spell with Watford in 1997, making six appearances and scoring twice. He represented a number of clubs over a twenty year career. 

Now working for Three Counties Radio, Keith spoke to Watford Legends in 2008 while managing Windsor & Eton.

Hi Keith, thanks for speaking to Watford Legends. You came to play at the home of football for a month. How was that?

I had a really good month at Watford with Kenny Jackett, and was there on loan with a view to signing. But then I spoke with Mike Walker – my manager at Norwich – who said that the funds weren’t available and I would need to come back to Carrow Road.

You had a number of clubs. Which club did you enjoy playing for the most?

I enjoyed my time at Norwich, it’s a friendly place, Wycombe was great as it gave me the springboard to a football career, and obviously having a year in the Premiership with Swindon was a good time.

Where are you now?

I am a Business Development Manager for a refit and refurbishment company in High Wycombe, and I am the Manager of Windsor and Eton FC in the Southern League.

What was it like leaving football to go to a full time job?

It was okay for me because when I was playing, I always knew that I would have to work after football.  What I was earning in the Premier League and First Division then, players in the Conference are earning now.

I have completed all my badges – I’m an A licence coach. However, I did not find a role in the full time game so I went in to the non-leagues. I came in to football through the non leagues, and I will do the same again with management.

Thanks for speaking with us Keith, and good luck for the season.

Cheers. Thank you.
