Christopher David "Chris" Kettings (born 25 October 1992) is a Scottish professional footballer who plays for Crystal Palace as a goalkeeper. He started his career with Manchester City in their Centre of Excellence before joining Blackpool in 2007, and signed a two-year scholarship in 2009 after serving two years in their Centre of Excellence. He signed a professional contract with the club in 2011 and was subsequently loaned out to Birmingham City, Woodley Sports, Morecambe and York City.

Club career[edit]

Blackpool[edit]

Born in Glasgow,[3] Kettings started his career with Manchester City's Centre of Excellence before joining Blackpool in 2007.[4][5] He was a member of the Greater Manchester under-16 squad which won the English counties national championship in April 2009, playing in the final and defeating Essex at The Den.[5] After two years with Blackpool's Centre of Excellence he signed a two-year scholarship with the youth team in May 2009.[5] Kettings was added to Blackpool's Premier League squad in February 2011 and his first involvement with the first team came as an unused substitute in a 1–1 home draw against Aston Villa on 12 February.[6][7] After his two-year scholarship he signed his first professional contract in June 2011, following Blackpool's relegation to the Championship.[4]

He joined Championship rivals Birmingham City on loan on 26 August 2011,[1] playing in all five under-18 league matches during his spell before he returned to Blackpool on 1 October 2011.[8][9] Kettings then joined Northern Premier League Division One North side Woodley Sports on loan in November 2011.[4] He made his debut on 12 November 2011 in a 3–0 defeat away to Salford City.[10] On 23 January 2012 he joined League Two side Morecambe on loan for the rest of the 2011–12 season.[11] He made his debut on 11 February in a 2–1 defeat away to Bristol Rovers,with his home debut coming three days later in a 1–0 victory over Macclesfield Town.[12] These proved to be his only appearances for Morecambe, meaning he finished the loan with two appearances.[12]

Kettings signed for League Two side York City on a season-long loan on 13 June 2013.[13] He made his debut after Michael Ingham picked up an injury during the warm-up prior to York's 3–2 defeat at home to Bristol Rovers in an FA Cup first round replay on 19 November 2013.[14] Nick Pope was signed on loan by York to cover for Ingham, with Kettings then deciding to return to Blackpool on his own accord, although his loan agreement would stay in place until 5 January 2014.[15] He joined Conference Premier side Hyde on loan for the rest of the season on 24 January 2014,[16] and made his debut a day later in a 3–0 home defeat to Tamworth.[17]

Crystal Palace[edit]

Kettings was released by Blackpool in May 2014 before signing for Premier League club Crystal Palace on a two-year contract on 19 June, to provide competition for Julián Speroni and Wayne Hennessey.[18][19][20]

International career[edit]

Kettings has represented Scotland at under-19 level, playing twice against Malta in 2010.[21] On 29 August 2012 he was called up to the under-21 squad for their 2013 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship qualification Group 10 games against Luxembourg on 6 September and Austria on 10 September,[22] but did not play in either game.[23] He made his under-21 debut in a 2–0 win against Canada in a friendly on 16 October 2012.[23]
