Where is Dean Kiely now?
Former Charlton Athletic goalkeeper Dean Kiely finally hung up his gloves in 2011 after spending four seasons at West Bromwich Albion.
Over a long 24-year career he racked up over 750 first-team appearances and featured in every professional English league winning the Second Divison title with Bury, the First Division title with Charlton and the Championship with West Brom.
He also represented the Republic of Ireland national side on 11 occasions – mostly as understudy to Shay Given.

Upon retiring Kiely remained at WBA and was their first-team goalkeeping coach until January 2015 when Tony Pulis was appointed as manager and chose to bring in his own backroom staff.
Out of football for just a month, he then joined Premier League side Norwich City as their goalkeeping and set-piece coach where he stayed for two years before leaving by mutual consent.
Snapped up quickly once again after leaving Norwich City, Kiely then joined former Canaries manager Alex Neil at Championship side Preston North End as goalkeeping coach.
He was on the move once again in January 2018 when he joined Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace in his current role as goalkeeper coach.
Away from football coaching Kiely has worked on various radio shows as a pundit and made his first appearance as a commentator on BBC Three Counties Radio in 2015. He has also featured on talkSPORT and Radio 5 Live.
