RUFC - Keith Kettleborough
Keith Kettleborough, a Rotherham born ex Miller has died today aged seventy-four.
Keith was an inside forward who began his career with his home team, Rotherham, towards the end of the 1955/56 season. The season after, he only played one game for the Millers, that being the first game of the campaign. But his skill, which included darting runs, made him a firm favourite the next year.
His most successful season as a Miller was in the 1959/60 season where he scored seven goals, the most memorable being in the FA Cup Third Round second replay when Rotherham beat Arsenal two-nil, in front of a crowd of 56,290.
From Rotherham, Keith joined Sheffield United before moving to the North East and Newcastle. He came back to South Yorkshire, with Doncaster Rovers in 1966 and ended his career, the following season, at Saltergate with Chesterfield.
