Keith Pring

NCFPA are saddened to learn that Keith passed away today losing a long battle with Alzheimer's disease.

Keith was a winger who began his career as an apprentice at Newport County in 1961 making his debut at the age of 18 where he went on to make 61 league appearances scoring three goals. He then moved to Rotherham in October 1964 for a fee of £7,000. Whilst at Rotherham he made 83 league appearances and scored six goals. He also made 3 appearances for Wales making his international debut on the 1st December 1965 against Denmark.

Keith then joined Notts County during season 1966/67 in a deal that took Dave Watson to Rotherham. In 1968/69 he shared wing duties with John Elliott and Brian Bates making 44 league appearance and scoring two goals.

He ended his career at Southport after making 48 consecutive appearances in the 1969/70 season but sadly broke his leg in the opening game of the 1970/71 season and did not appear at senior level again.

Our thoughts go out to Keith's family and friends.
