Keith Alexander (14 November 1958 3 March 2010) was a Saint Lucian footballer and manager. Born in Nottingham, England, he was the manager of League Two side Macclesfield Town at the time of his death, in a career that included international appearances for Saint Lucia. Alexander played for a whole host of lower league football teams. His main success, however, came from football management managing in both non-league and the Football League. He took League Two side Lincoln City to four consecutive play offs, taking them to two finals at the Millennium Stadium. His eldest son, Matt is a FIFA licensed Football agent and works with many top flight players.

He was the first full-time black professional manager in the Football League, and is considered by many to be a pioneer of the modern game.
