Rob Keogh Signs 2 Year Contract Extension with Northamptonshire CCC
Rob Keogh has signed a new 2 year contract extension, keeping the all-rounder at Northamptonshire until at least the end of 2025.
Having joined the Club at the age of 15, Keogh is now approaching his 15th season for Northamptonshire and has been with the county his entire professional career.
“It’s always nice to be a one club player and to stay at the club that I joined as a kid for another two years is very special.”
The 31-year-old was voted Northamptonshire’s Player of the Month for April by supporters and is glad to continue making valuable contributions.
“I feel like it’s been a little bit of a rollercoaster these last few years, but I’ve re-found my love of cricket and put in some good performances.” Keogh said.
“I want to help the club as much as possible, bring silverware back to the club and with the current squad I can’t see why that can’t happen.” He added.
Head Coach John Sadler was pleased Keogh had extended his stay at Northamptonshire.
“It’s great to see Rob sign an extension, he’s a senior player in our squad and a good role model in the dressing room.” Sadler said.
“The resurgence of his bowling has made him one of the leading all-rounders in the game and we’re consistently seeing him put in good performances in all formats.”
Keogh was key member of the side last summer, being voted Players’ Player of the Year in the process and is keen to use his experience to help develop the squad.
“I’ve been helping the younger lads where I can and it has almost made me feel younger myself and driven my own game forward at the same time.
“I want to help the club stay in Division One, that’s the main goal. And obviously I want to give those match winning performances but I also want to enjoy my cricket and help everyone around the club.”
