Hall of Fame No. 45

Winger who sadly died aged just 48 is included in our Hall of Fame

Mark Keyworth (Midfielder 1987 - 90)

Sadly, some of the members of our Hall of Fame are no longer with us.

One such is the mercurial winger Mark Keyworth, who was an integral part of one of the most successful sides this club has ever had.

The pacy wide player died suddenly in 2013 aged just 48.

Nicknamed Kiwi, he he was hugely popular - and many of his former team-mates turned out to play in a memorial match in Lincoln later that year.

He played nearly 100 games over three seasons for Boston FC alongside players such as Stu and Alfie Park, Garry Goddard, Baz Barker, Nigel Vince, Dean Dye and Steve Holmes.

Kiwi helped Bill Brindley’s team win the Central Midlands League Supreme Division championship in 1988-89 and he also won the Lincs Senior A Cup in 1988-89 and 1989-90.

And as well as creating countless goals for the likes of Goddard and Dye, he chipped in with plenty of goals himself - including seven in that memorable title-winning season.

A skilful and speedy player who always posed problems for opposition defenders, Kiwi also played for Lincolnshire schoolboys and Lincoln City’s youth side.

Debut: 16 August 1987 - Boston FC 2, Oakham 0
