Keith Nichol Slater (born 12 March 1936 in Midland, Western Australia) is a former Western Australian and Australian cricketer and WAFL player.

Cricket career[edit]

In cricket he only played in only one Test, but 74 first-class cricket matches for Western Australia. He was an all-rounder whose international career was probably shortened by doubts over his bowling action. He was also called for throwing while playing against New South Wales in 1964-65.

Australian rules football career[edit]

Slater was a star footballer for Swan Districts and Subiaco and played in the 1961 WAFL grand final with Swan's against East Perth with high expectations of winning the Simpson Medal in that year.
