Keith Robson

Norwich Career: 1978-1981 (71 appearances, 14 goals)
Current Club: Retired
Date of Birth: 15/11/1953
Nationality: English


Northumbrian Keith Robson was signed by Norwich in February 1978 to provide Kevin Reeves with an experienced partner upfront. He was eventually displaced by Justin Fashanu but not before he had managed 71 appearances scoring 14 goals. He was sold to Leicester City in September 1981 where he made 9 league appearances. A loan spell at Carlisle in March 1983 where he made 11 appearances scoring four goals occurred before a return to the beauty and comfort of Norfolk. League football with Carlisle where he spent a loan spell scoring four times in 11 games was not powerful enough to dispel the attractions of life in Norfolk. Keith returned in 1983, after a brief spell in Hong Kong witht he South China Athletic Association, and played for Norwich Busmen and later with Wroxham where he became Assistant Manager in 1993/94.

Prior to his spell at Carrow Road, Keith began his career at Newcastle United making his debut against Chelsea aged 19. He scored 3 times in 14 games. He joined West Ham for £60,000 in September 1974 and teammates at Upton Park included John McDowell , Graham Paddon and Alan Taylor. After 68 games in Claret and Blue, scoring 13 goals, he joined Cardiff City in July 1977. 5 goals in 21 games prompted Norwich to spend £25,000 on his transfer.

Keith now works as a machinist in Norwich.
