The Prescotian Webzine

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Keith Macklin,
who attended the school in the 1940s.

Keith was a well known broadcaster in rugby league and sports circles
as well as local television and radio.

I only met Keith once at a Prescotian Reunion where he was very gracious and thanked me for the efforts on this website [Trevor Powell]

I was Head Girl at the Girls School but my dad Robert John Lomax was at school with Keith Macklin and played in the school football team with him 1946/47. (See Archives photo ...Keith is on the front row, far left, and my dad is stood next to the teacher on the back row.) Whenever Keith came on the radio or TV my dad would regale us with tales from their school days. I remember watching him present A Spoonful of Sugar on Christmas morning as Keith went around hospitals giving presents to sick children. My dad is sadly no longer here to send his condolences but I know he'd want me to say our family are sad to hear of Keith's passing. [Amanda Graney]

Keith Macklin was a regular attender at the` Old Prescotians `lunches, held quarterly at Huyton & Prescot Golf Club. [Gordon A E Williams]
