WE are saddened to hear of the passing of former player Brian Keeble at the age of 77.
Brian began his football career with his hometown club, Holbeach United. While doing his National Service in the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment, he played for Town's reserves as an amateur, and turned professional as soon as he left the Army in 1959.
He made his League debut against York City in the following September, and went on to establish himself in the Town starting eleven.
Brian was an ever-present when the club were promoted as third division runners-up in 1961–62.
Our thoughts are with Brian's family at this sad time.
