Wherever Kevin Keegan OBE makes an appearance, like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, he is surrounded by a wave of enthusiasm.
The archetypal Mr. Nice Guy, Kevin Keegan affords everyone he meets a few magic minutes to chat with him. His appearance at Waterstones, Southampton on Saturday 6th October 2018, was no exception. The queue outside the shop in the West Quay Shopping Centre, was evident at 12.30pm. The journey from an appearance on BBC Radio 4’s Saturday Live, was prolonged due to an incident on the motorway, we were told.

Having arrived, Kevin embarked on a mammoth signing session of his autobiography ” My Life in Football. ” The average wait was about 2 hours, but true to form, everyone got individual attention. The French couple in front of me had their book dedicated to special friend; got a photograph together with Kevin, before he unexpectedly launched into a very personal videoed vocal rendition of ” Happy Birthday ! “
All in all a warm welcome back to Southampton for one of the City’s most popular sports stars on the first wet, windy and cold day of Autumn, hence the warm winter coat.
