Keith Knight

Coach

D.O.B: 16th February 1969 

He started as a youngster at Cheltenham Town, won seven England Under 18 caps and was transferred to Reading when he was just 19, scoring on his debut at Southend. Injuries hampered his progression, a deal with Sunderland falling through, and he joined Glouceser City on his release from Reading. However, he stayed only a short time at Gloucester to continue his professional career with BV Vendeem in Holland.

On his return to England, Keith joined Trowbridge Town, managed by his former colleague at Gloucester, John Murphy. He had a loan spell with Yeovil Town before following Murphy to Gloucester City in August 1994. He joined Cheltenham Town on loan in the 1996-97 season and moved to Halesowen Town in October 1996. He later rejoined Cheltenham where he was a member of their side that won the FA Trophy in 1998 and the Conference and with it promotion to the Football League in 1999.

Knight didn't follow Cheltenham into the League, moving to Worcester City in the 1999 close season. He subsequently played for Witney Town, Clevedon Town and Swindon Supermarine before signing for Ciren in August 2002 to become a key member of Brian Hughes' team that season

Keith then rejoined Gloucester City in June 2003 as player-coach. He left in January 2006 to join Cinderford Town, initially as a player, before becoming player-coach and stepping up to player-manager in July 2007.

After a very promising first spell as a team manager, Keith resigned from Cinderford in October 2007, and decided to concentrate purely on playing football again. He rejoined Swindon Supermarine in October 2007 before switching to Bishops Cleeve later in the season.

In the summer of 2009, Keith joined the coaching team at Cirencester and also registered again as a player. After playing his part in our successful promotion to the Southern League Premier Division, Keith stepped down from his coaching role at the end of the season. 

Keith returned to assist Brian Hughes in a coaching capacity during the 2014-15 Season
