Keith Knox (born 6 August 1964 in Stranraer) is a Scottish former football player and was the manager of Creetown F.C. until his resignation in September 2017.

Playing career

Knox started his career with his hometown team, before moving to Clyde in 1987. Knox was a part-time player, combining his football career with his duties as a postman. This led to him being given the nickname "The Postie". Knox regularly did his shift as a postman in Stranraer, before travelling to Cumbernauld for Clyde training. This dedication for 10 years made him a firm favourite amongst the Clyde fans. He was the club captain for the latter years, and was awarded a testimonial against Rangers in 1997. Knox also played in the first ever game at Broadwood Stadium in 1994.

After 10 years good service, Knox left Clyde and returned to his first club and hometown team, Stranraer. He stayed there for 4 years, before moving to Alloa Athletic. He had spells at Gretna and Stenhousemuir, before dropping out of the Scottish Football League, to take up a player-manager role at Wigtown & Bladnoch.

Management and coaching

Knox rejoined Stranraer in July 2007, in the position of Reserve Team manager. After Derek Ferguson left the club, Knox was appointed as caretaker manager in January 2009.[1] He was given the job on a permanent basis in February 2009.[2] Stranraer sacked Knox in October 2012, citing poor results early in the 2012–13 season.[3] On November 14, 2012, Knox was appointed manager of South of Scotland League side Threave Rovers.[4] In October 2016 Knox returned to Football as manager of South of Scotland side Creetown F.C. He resigned from Creetown F.C. in September 2017.
