Keith Lamb
Born (1946-10-27) October 27, 1946 (age 72)

He considers the move from Ayresome Park to the Riverside Stadium one of the most significant events during his time at Middlesbrough F.C.[1]

He currently sits on the FA International Board.

Keith Lamb was instrumental in bringing famous names to Middlesbrough's Riverside Stadium, such as Juninho, Ravanelli (The White Feather), Emerson, Bryan Robson and Paul Gascoigne.

Lamb and club Chairman Steve Gibson were part of a consortium that rescued the club from extinction in 1986, after they fell into serious financial difficulty.

During Lamb's tenure, Middlesbrough invested heavily in youth development, developing the Rockliffe Park facility in Hurworth to rival the leading Academies across Europe. When it was opened, it was the number one facility in the UK, and inspired other Premier League clubs to develop their Academies. The youth Academy has since produced Premier League players such as Lee Cattermole, Ross Turnbull, David Wheater, Chris Brunt, Stuart Parnaby and England internationals Stewart Downing and Adam Johnson.
