Best known for being in the wrong place at the wrong time! Keith made his debut for Plymouth Albion on the wing at Kingsholm in front of a none too impressed Shed. Then on learning he was going to the LSE Wasps sent him a “come and join us” note. He arrived on the same day as Nigel Neville. Whilst at LSE he was asked by David Trick to play in a fund raising game on the Rec, and arrived to find fourteen internationals in the changing room and the Bath President at the time, Jack Simpkins, who told him in no uncertain terms to wait outside for autographs! 

Joined Bath on leaving LSE and arrived at his first training session to be introduced to another new boy, Richard Hill. Subsequently spent many Saturday afternoons on the bench where he was in charge of sweets. Went on tours with Bath to Canada and the US where he proved himself a very able and much fined tourist, spending one very memorable night handcuffed to Gareth Chilcott.
