Teen Talent

Kevin Keegan started as a teenager with Scunthorpe, but his talent as a creative midfielder led to a quick move into Bill Shankly’s Liverpool FC. Keegan quickly established his place, moving to striker and a fruitful partnership with John Toshack. He went on to win three First Division titles and numerous trophies.

Kevin Keegan Career Highlights

In an illustrious career, Keegan made 321 appearances for Liverpool FC, and both captained and managed the national side. He also felt the lure of Hamburg and Newcastle (on more than one occasion), and gave a generation of men their hairstyle. Kevin entertains and inspires any audience, not just football fans

After 323 appearances and 100 goals, Kevin Keegan left Merseyside to become Germany’s highest paid player, winning the Bundesliga with Hamburg. At the same time, he was appointed England captain, a role he held until after the team were ejected from the 1982 World Cup.

Back To Blighty

Keegan returned to the UK to play for Southampton FC and Newcastle United. Helping the latter to promotion in his second season. After an eight year break, Keegan returned to Newcastle as manager. Once again steering the club into the top tier of the domestic game. Admired for his attacking tactics, he took them to second place in the Premier League.

Then, after a spell at Fulham FC, Keegan took charge of the national side; a hugely popular choice with press and public. However, his time in charge ended harshly with a media backlash after the team’s loss to Germany in a World Cup qualifier.

Kevin Keegan In Retirement

After a spell at Manchester City and a final return to Newcastle, Keegan retired from management but continues to be involved in the game with academies, and as a pundit.

He speaks about his eventful career and the lessons he has learned, and the value of looking forward instead of reflecting on past glories.

“Kevin was so engaging and really set the tone for what was a marvellous evening. He had time for all and seemed to enjoy meeting everyone as much as they clearly enjoyed meeting someone who to many has been a hero to them.”

  1. Tony Cottey – Sussex Cricket Foundation

    The best sports speaker I have ever seen!

  2. Marshalls Plc

    Our audience absolutely loved him. What we liked about him was his sense of humour – he was funny but at the same time not offensive to anyone because his jokes were related to football, so great in front of mixed audience. We also liked the fact that he was down to earth, talking to everyone, and totally not as you would imagine a celebrity of this calibre.

  3. NW Business Masters Awards

    Kevin had everyone feeling relaxed and there were lots of laughs throughout his presentation. He exceeded expectations! He was so lovely to deal with in the run up to the event and we have had great feedback from attendees.

  4. Investment Property Forum

    Last night went very well and Kevin was just right for the event. Please can you thank him very much for an excellent presentation and being kind enough to pose for photos and give autographs. The problem now is who will be as good next year as I am hopeful we will be making this an annual fixture.

  5. British Tunnelling Society

    Kevin was so engaging and really set the tone for what was a marvellous evening. He had time for all and seemed to enjoy meeting everyone as much as they clearly enjoyed meeting someone who to many has been a hero to them.

  6. Ryan Heal – Managing Director BofB

    I have been organising our Events for 15 years and I have NEVER witnessed the levels of engagement Kevin afforded our sponsors and guests. It was an honour to work with him. He was brilliant!

  7. Neal Western (MPA)

    Kevin was absolutely fantastic – he went down a storm with the guests and we have a lot of feedback and comments that he was the best speaker at the event for many years. He was extremely engaging and personable and very easy to work with on the day, with nothing too much trouble and being happy to adapt and be flexible. I know the top table, where he sat for the meal, found him to be funny, interesting and “a very nice man” – a comment I heard more than once on Wednesday! In addition, he went above and beyond with more than hour of photos, signatures and meeting guests, who were queuing up like children to see Father Christmas! It was amazing to see and he really brought a sprinkle of stardust to the proceedings. Could you please pass on our thanks and gratitude to him and his team for helping make our event a truly memorable and enjoyable one.
