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.
