Keith Sanderson (born 9 October 1940 in Hull) was a footballer with QPR in the 1960s.[1]

Sanderson made his debut for Queens Park Rangers in the 1–6 defeat by local rivals, Brentford, on the opening day of the 1965–66 season after signing from Plymouth Argyle. Things got better and Sanderson was part of the successful 1966–67 team managerd by Alec Stock that won both the Third Division Championship and the Football League Cup Final 1967 at Wembley beating WBA 3–2.

Sanderson was a tireless midfielder, doing the running for more glamorous colleagues like Rodney Marsh and went on to play 104 league games, scoring 10 goals. Sanderson was also remarkable in that he was a part-time player (he worked in computers in his "day job").
