Hull-born striker Keane Lewis-Potter built a fearsome reputation for goalscoring as a teenager, striking 120 goals in one season. He was offered a first professional contract in February 2018 days after his seventeenth birthday, this rapid ascent came after a flood of goals for the youth team and under-23 side that continued into 2018/19 and led to his debut in the FA Cup at Millwall in January 2019. A month after this debut Keane’s continued promise encouraged City to sign him up until June 2022.
In November 2019 Keane scored his first goal for City, a late consolation during defeat at Barnsley and continued to make a positive contribution during 2019/20, mostly from the bench, despite City’s perilous collapse in form. He began the 2020/21 season firmly in the first team picture and opened his goal account with a diving header against Leicester in the EFL Trophy, adding a League goal four days later in the first fixture of the League One season. He became a first name on the teamsheet as the season developed, until a contract dispute meant he spent much of the winter sitting on the bench as vice-chairman Ehab Allam sought to exert his will on Keane and get him to sign a new contract. When the impasse was eventually broken in mid-January Keane was restored to the first team and a resurgent City immediately cuffed Accrington Stanley 3-0. He continued to make an important contribution to City’s League One title winning season and built a reputation as one of the lower leagues’ most promising young talents.
Keane started the 2021/22 season in impressive form, scoring goals in each of the first two games against Preston and Wigan, and he attained ‘first name on the teamsheet’ status with his willing running and tricky dribbling skills.
