Keelan, Kevin I wonder if anyone from the Blakeshall hostel remembers Dixie,Cherie and Juanita Michael? My family lived there from approx. 1949 to 1956. Does anyone remember Erica Gallagher, Winnie Daley,
Do get in touch I am Jackie Michael.

Keelan, Kevin I was gutted when you left Wrexham. One of the best keepers I had ever seen and your stint at Norwich shows why.

Keelan, Kevin Hi Kevin. Been trying to get in touch with you for years. I was a Stoke City FC apprentice in the mid-70s as a goalkeeper under the watchful eye of the great Gordon Banks, but you were my hero between the sticks. I still hate Ray Graydon for his very lucky penalty rebound off the post goal in the League Cup final in 1975. You were the best goalkeeper in the world in my eyes and wish I could either meet you or get in touch somehow, please. All the best. Mike

Keelan, Kevin Hi Kevin, my brother Gordon and I used to live near to you and your brothers at Blakeshall Hostel. I’ve just turned 76 so a bit younger than you, Gordon is the same age as you and unfortunately suffering with dementia. I remember watching you and the elder boys playing football on the hill just outside the the hostel. I lost touch with a lot of the families from Blakeshall when I moved to live in the Cheshire area, but still in touch with Gerald Le’fant who still lives in Kidderminster. I followed your football career and my son Stuart is an ardent Aston Villa supporter. Hope you and your family are well.

Keelan, Kevin Hi Kevin, I lived next door to you. I am now 77 and a little younger than you but have followed you on TV. You have accomplished so much and should be proud of all you have achieved. Mary

Keelan, Kevin Do you remember the kiddy league cricket and football? Bryce Holmes maybe Ted Vigar. My uncle was a Norwich season ticket holder for many years and always held you up as the best goalkeeper and a great bloke. Keep on truckin.

Keelan, Kevin Greatest goalkeeper that has ever pulled on a Norwich City shirt and how I wish goalkeepers today would come out and claim crosses like Kevin did. If I remember rightly he also claimed the centre forward from Northampton Town with a lovely right hook!!!

Keelan, Kevin Hi Kevin. Remember Mary and Irene Dalby. We lived next door to you in Blakeshall Hostel in Woolverly. We remember the time you ran up the hill to let us know you were joining the soccer team. Glad to see you did so well. Mary Dalby
