The 53-year-old Macclesfield boss, who recently took time off due to illness, passed away after arriving home on Tuesday night from Town's League Two match at Notts County.

A statement from the club said: 'It is our sad duty to report that Keith Alexander passed away today after arriving home from Macclesfield Town's game at Notts County last night. Keith was a splendid man. He will be sorely missed at the Moss Rose and by everyone involved in football. Our thoughts and sympathies are with his family at this very difficult time.'

Alexander had two brief spells at The Walks in the early 1980s after winning the FA Vase as a player in 1980 with Stamford before going on to play for Grimsby, Stockport, Lincoln and Mansfield in the Football League.
