Lance Key (born 13 May 1968 in Kettering, Northamptonshire) is an English former professional football goalkeeper, most recently at Wivenhoe Town of the Eastern Counties League Premier Division. His elder brother Richard was also a professional goalkeeper principally for Exeter City and Cambridge United.

Key began his professional career in April 1990 when he joined Sheffield Wednesday from non-league Histon for a fee of £10,000. He spent six years with Wednesday, but made just one appearance, as a substitute in the FA Cup at Gillingham. This followed the sending off of Kevin Pressman. Key's first touch was to pick the ball out of the net following the penalty which led to the sending off.

Loan spells with Oldham Athletic, Oxford United, Lincoln City, Hartlepool United and Rochdale followed before a free transfer move to Dundee United in July 1996.

At Tannadice, Key was understudy to regular keeper Ally Maxwell and made his debut on 2 November 1996 in a 1-1 draw away to Motherwell. He played twice more later that month, but returned to England in March 1997 without making any further first team appearances, joining Sheffield United on a free transfer.

In August 1997 he joined Rochdale on a free transfer. He moved to Northwich Victoria on loan in December 1998, with the move being made permanent in February 1999.

He moved to Kingstonian in June 2001 and rejoined Histon in September 2004,[1] where he helped the team to Southern League and Conference South championships. He left Histon in September 2008 and joined Wivenhoe Town,[2] but left the club after just one FA Vase appearance.
