Rangers legend appears in York mural

25th April, 2021

A Winterton Rangers legend, who went on to play professional football for York City, has been immortalised in a mural following the Vanarama National League North side's move to a new stadium.

Kenford Keith Ian Walwyn, known as Keith Walwyn, was a prolific striker in Rangers' 1979 Yorkshire League championship winning team.

The frontman, born in St Kitts and Nevis in 1956, then signed for Chesterfield for a fee of around £4,000 before moving to York City in 1981 where he made 245 league appearances, scoring 119 goals, over a six-year spell.

He is York's second all-time top scorer and his goals helped them to the Division Four title in 1984.

Keith then went on to play for Blackpool and Carlisle United before finishing his playing career with Kettering Town but he sadly passed away in 2003, aged just 47, while undergoing a heart operation.

The mural, painted last month by local artist Keith Hopewell, shows Keith in action for the Minsterman above some seats taken from York's old Bootham Park ground.

It can be seen at the popular Sparks food and drink venue on Piccadilly.

Meanwhile, a picture of Keith can also be seen on the boardroom walls at Winterton's MKM Stadium as a permanent reminder of one of the greatest players to play for the Toolstation NCEL Division One club.
