  • Player profile

    Rotherham-born Keyworth spent almost six successful years with City after joining from hometown club Rotherham United in May 1958.

    The left-half turned centre-forward made his debut at home against Everton in August of the same year and went on to score at a ratio of a goal every three matches for the Foxes in the First Division.

    Keyworth almost joined Wolves as a youngster but on completion of his RAF national service returned home to become a regular with the Millers. Ironically, he scored his first-ever league goal against City before completing a £9,000 move to Filbert Street.

    The tough forward enjoyed cup success with Leicester and notched over 200 appearances in all competitions, scoring over 70 goals along the way before he moved on to neighbours Coventry City on a free transfer. He couldn't enjoy the same success with either the Sky Blues or Swindon Town, however, and post-football returned to Rotherham to work as a quantity surveyor at a steelworks.
