Jack Kelsey (19 November 1929 - 18 March 1992) was a Welsh international football goalkeeper, who also played for Arsenal. He is regarded as one of the greatest goalkeeper to play for Wales. Kelsey would develop into an outstanding goalkeeper over the next couple of the seasons although the basic ingredients of his craft were evident from the start. He was big and strong but extremely agile. His positioning was sure and he was especially strong on crosses and commanding his area with real authority. The thrilling side of Jack Kelsey is goalkeeping was always jurt below the surface, however waiting to burst out when the situation demanded, the dramatic diving save, the headlong plunge at the strikers feet or the boldly confident claiming of a centre above the penalty area throng. Like all sporting stars who genuienely touch greatness there was almost a beauty in the way Kelsey kept goal a grace to match the raw power of this movement and a wonderful sense of timing about everything he did.

Kelsey had made his international debut for Wales in March 1954 and only missed three international in the newt eight years, despite regularly finding himself in the was through his unflinching bravery in guarding his net wit Arsenal. Kelsey career was cut short after he sustahned a back injury playing for Wales in a friendly againts Brazil in May 1962, whilst trying to save at the feet of Vavá, despite many attempt for rectify his injury, he was forced to retire a year later. In all, he played 352 times for Arsenal, comprising 327 league match, 24 in FA Cup and 1 in the Charity Shield.
