1   KEITH ALEXANDER Tributes  

Keith Alexander (14 November 1956 – 3 March 2010).

The first full-time black professional manager in the Football League and considered by many to be a pioneer of the modern game.
Born in Nottingham, England, he was the manager of League Two side Macclesfield Town at the time of his death, in a career that included international appearances for Saint Lucia. Alexander played for a whole host of lower league football teams. His main success, however, came from football management – managing in both non-league and the Football League. He took League Two side Lincoln City to four consecutive play offs, taking them to two finals at the Millennium Stadium. Our condolences to his family and near and dear ones.

BOOK NOTES
"A rhythmic  feast for football lovers everywhere both young and old. From rattles and rosettes to women's football and the trenches, fantasy salaries and racism to mobile phones for goalposts. Spanning fifty years of watching and ten years of writing , Inner Goal is an affectionate and perceptive nod to the People's Game in verse. A long-overdue and illustrated hard-copy paperback debut from football's maverick performance poet featuring 75  poems, 65 haikus and hand-drawn illustrations from the author.
