Keith Alexander: 1956-2010


Today's news that a proper Grimsby Town legend has died is awful. I've been asked to write a tribute to Keith for Cod Almighty, and I'll post that here when it's up there.

In the meantime, I'll just say that in age when players come and go at Blundell Park and you never know who is going to be in the squad from one game to another, someone like Keith Alexander seems a lifetime away. The fact that he played very much in the modern era, and has now gone is very sad indeed.

So thanks, Keith, for the best two seasons of football anyone could hope for.
