Cult/Star player for Tingsryds AIF

Team Sweden: 7 International Games, Team Sweden II (Vikingarna): 10 International Games

Kommer från Troja i Ljungby. Var även en god fotbollsspelare och kusin till legendariska cykelbröderna Fåglum.
En placeringssäker back som kom att använda enkla metoder i sitt backspel för att nå framgång. Enligt legendariske kanadensaren Des Moroney så var Kenneth minst lika talangfull som Börje Salming.

Bor i Tingsryd.
