Brother of Leon. In his
early days Keith could play in midfield, but he became a wonderful
central defender as time went by. A truly gifted player whose
temperament was second to none.
A stylish and supremely
talented footballer who could play in defence or as a creative
midfielder. Majestic on the ball, Barry always seemed to have time to
play the ball and the timing of his tackling was top-notch. A great
centre back who gave may years of excellent service to Rocester.
Brother of Keith, Leon was
recognised as a fine midfield player who always had time on the ball and
made the game look easy. Could take a ball off an opponent just as
easily as he could take it past one.
