Keith Dickenson was an accomplished schoolboy and country footballer who turned his hand to administration after World War Two with great success. He served New Town and Glenorchy football clubs through their golden period of dominance of TFL and Tasmanian football. As an administrator he also played an instrumental role in the expansion of the TFL (particularly the admission of Clarence and New Norfolk), the establishment of King George V Oval and the publishing of the TFL record. Dickenson was inducted into the Glenorchy Hall of Fame in 2002.
