Keith Newton (born in Manchester 23 June 1941) played football for Blackburn Rovers, Everton and Burnley. He signed for Blackburn Rovers in October 1960. Originally a wing-half, he was converted to a full-back, and became one of England's finest defenders. He played at either right or left back.

Newton signed for Everton in December 1969 for £80,000, after making over 300 first-team appearances for Blackburn Rovers. He made 58 appearances for Everton scoring only one goal. He played in the latter half of the 1969-70 season in which Everton won the championship. Everton gave him a free transfer to Burnley in 1971.

Newton won his first cap for England in February 1966. He played 27 times for England until 1970 including the first three matches of the 1970 World Cup in Mexico before being injured.

Newton retired from playing in May 1978.
