One-club Keogh to stick with Northants
NORTHANTS all-rounder Rob Keogh has committed his future to the county and extended his contract.
Keogh, 25, will stay at the Division Two club until at least the end of the 2019 season having first signed a deal at the county in 2007.
He made his debut against Yorkshire in 2010 and scored a career best double-hundred against Hampshire at Southampton in September 2013, playing a fundamental role in the squad that went on to secure promotion into Division One.
Keogh said: “I’ve been involved with Northants since I was 14 so I’m delighted to sign a new contract with the club.
“We’ve had some pretty good success in recent years with the two T20 wins and promotion in 2013 so I’m definitely looking forward to developing and improving my cricket here.
“Northants is a great club, with a great bunch of lads and I can’t wait to get back out there next season and try to win some more trophies.”
Keogh has claimed 65 Championship wickets and scored over 2,700 runs in 59 appearances, while in 2016 he hit the winning runs in the T20 Blast Final at Edgbaston, which saw the Steelbacks lift the trophy for the second time in three years.
Northants head coach David Ripley added: “Rob’s a modern, three dimensional cricketer, able to contribute in all three formats with bat, ball and, as we remember from his stunning catch at finals day, field.
“He’s played a lot of cricket already at 25 but I feel there is even more for us to tap into over the next two years and beyond.”
