GOALKEEPER James McKeown originally signed for the Mariners during the summer of 2011, penning a one-year plus a year option deal. Macca penned a new 2-year deal during the summer of 2014.

McKeown (21) was signed by Peterborough United from Walsall where he started out as a trainee. He joined Conference North team Kettering Town on loan in August 2007 and Worcester City in October, and was loaned to Boston United last season where he played for Paul Hurst and Rob Scott.

He played a key role in Boston's excellent start to the season, keeping 14 clean sheets in 18 games. After returning to the Posh, and despite his great form, he was told that he could leave the London Road club.

After leaving Peterborough he decided that Dutch football was for him and he signed a one-year deal with RSKV Leondas.
