Allen, Keith I went to watch Tranmere v Plymouth circa 1971. Keith was playing for Plymouth that night. The ball got stuck under the advertising board on the side of the pitch. I was 11 years old and tried to get the ball freed. Keith came over and kicked the ball free, the ball hit me and a few Tranmere fans shouted obscenities to Keith and, I have never forgotten him to this day.
