Beyond England

In August 2005, Keown joined the coaching staff of AFC Newbury. He returned to Arsenal FC as coach and scout soon after.  In 2007-08, he coached the Oxford University side.  Keown regularly appears as a pundit on BBC, TV3 and ESPN. On 21 June 2012, Wembley FC have recruited Keown, along with former internationals Ray Parlour and Graeme Le Saux, to play in their FA Cup campaign this season. They have come out of retirement to play for Wembley FC, who are in the ninth tier of English football. The club have agreed a sponsorship deal with Budweiser, which is in the first of a three-year deal as sponsor of the FA Cup. The idea is to get Wembley FC to Wembley Stadium, which you can see from here, by winning the cup. The trials and tribulations of the club will be filmed as part of a TV documentary.
