Keogh becomes number six

Last updated : 14 July 2005 By Tony Scholes

Keogh was released by Stoke at the end of last season but both Steve Cotterill and Dave Kevan remembered him and invited him to join the Clarets for the pre-season. The 6ft 3ins central defender has made the most of it and has become the sixth summer signing and the fifth former Stoke player at Turf Moor.

Harlow born Keogh has, as we reported, been capped nine times by the Republic of Ireland at Under-19 level and was one of four players released by Stoke at the end of last season.

He will travel with the squad to Cheltenham where, along with the other five signings, he is expected to make his Burnley debut.

Welcome to the Turf Richard.
