Falkirk FC 100 Club - Bobby Keyes

This is one of several [well..... I think seven, maybe eight, off the top of my head] players who scored 100+ goals for Falkirk FC, I fully intend to profile their known goals, appearances would be trickier, but give it time, including three who have been almost completely forgotten as their careers happened before Falkirk joining the league, though I might not do all [we'll see]. This is about Bobby Keyes who sparked up a lethal partnership at IL or CF with the legendary Kenny Dawson at OL in the years leading up to WWII, like Kenny we will never know how their careers might have ended had Hitler not got in the way.
