Kenny Burns was born in Glasgow, Scotland on 23 Sept 1953.
 
Kenny made 20 International appearances for Scotland and made over 400 appearances, with spells at Birmingham, Leeds Utd, Notts Forest and Derby. As a striker at Birmingham, and then as a defender with Forest’s European Cup-winning side, Kenny Burns was a well-known player before he arrived at Leeds.
 
Despite his enthusiasm and drive, he couldn’t motivate the players around him to make the effort necessary to keep Leeds in Division 1, and after 18 months of games for a Leeds side struggling to escape from Division 2, he moved on to Derby after a loan spell.
 
He dropped down to non-league football in 1986, playing for a variety of Midlands sides, before taking the standard exit route of footballers into pub management towards the end of the 1980s. 

Kenny is available for Lunches/Sporting Dinners and Golf Days.
