Legendary Lincoln City manager Keith Alexander is being remembered today, four years after his untimely death.

The former Imps boss was in charge at Macclesfield Town when he died in 2010.

Today, the Silkmen have placed a poignant tribute on their website in memory of the former player and manager, who is still held in high regard at Sincil Bank.

The tribute reads: "Four years on. On the morning of March 3rd 2010, fans of the Silkmen and Lincoln City in particular, but the football world as a whole, were shocked to hear the news that Macclesfield Town manager Keith Alexander had passed away.

"The manager had been in charge at the Moss Rose for a little over two years and was a popular figure around the club, as he had been anywhere he had plied his trade as a player or manager.

"Such was his impact on the game, the England national side wore black armbands for a match against Egypt the following evening. He remains sadly missed."

A plaque commemorating Keith and his former Lincoln city player Richard 'Butch' Butcher - who also died suddenly - has since been erected in the concourse of the Macclesfield club's Moss Lane Stand.

    Remember being at that game with a mixture of pride and sadness. Was a great gesture from the FA to do that and does indeed reflect the shock that was felt at the time nationally.
