Brian Kilcline is a retired English professional footballer. He played as a centre half for Notts County, Coventry City, Oldham Athletic, Newcastle United, Swindon Town, Mansfield Town and Halifax Town. Kilcline captained Coventry City in the 1987 FA Cup Final at Wembley against Tottenham Hotspur. After Coventry's extra time winner (the match finished 3-2) Kilcline limped slowly up the famous Wembley step to receive the trophy for the first time in Coventry's history.
In 1991, Kilcline joined newly promoted Oldham Athletic but his stay at the club was not to be a long one. When Kevin Keegan became manager of Newcastle United in 1992, Kilcline was his first signing, and was immediately installed as club captain.
