Keith Kettleborough: Midfielder whose artistry and industriousness put him on the fringes of the 1966 England football squad

With his balding head, pallid features and scuttling gait, Keith Kettleborough didn't cut a glamorous figure on the football pitch, even during his prime with Sheffield United in the first half of the 1960s. No matter: the slim Yorkshireman was one of the game's true craftsmen, a subtly constructive midfield general who brought to his work an appealing cocktail of artistry and industry which, during mid-decade as plans were being laid to capture the World Cup, prompted the England manager Alf Ramsey to call him into his training squad.

League round-up: Lita torments Royals as Boro bounce back

Leroy Lita returned to Reading, where he spent four seasons before joining Middlesbrough, and rekindled Boro's hopes of a swift return to the Premiership by scoring the second goal in a 2-0 win. After 12 minutes Sean St Ledger headed in Adam Johnson's corner, but Lita's 55th-minute solo effort was more spectacular. Gathering a pass on halfway, he outpaced Darren O'Dea and Ivar Ingimarsson and ran on to beat Adam Federici in the Reading goal. Boro moved up to third.

When Norman Curtis took penalties for Sheffield Wednesday during the 1950s, a team-mate would place the ball on the spot and the combative left-back would start to charge from deep inside his own half, steadily at first but building fearsome momentum as he neared the opposition's box.
