Born in Cape Town, Keet was a member of the Vasco Da Gama squad that won promotion to the National First Division in 2008 before joining Premier Soccer League side Bidvest Wits. He made his PSL debut with the Students in 2008 and quickly established himself as the club's number one goalkeeper making 54 league appearances until he signed for the Belgian club KV Kortrijk in June 2011 on a four-year contract.[3]
