Loyal County Ground servant Rob Keogh is awarded testimonial by Northants
The 32-year-old has been a fixture at Wantage Road for the past 14 years, staying as a one-club man since he joined the club's academy set-up as a teenager.
Keogh has gone on to score close to 10,000 runs in all competitions for the County, while also claiming more than 150 wickets with his off-spin.
Born in Dunstable, Keogh has been a key performer for the club across all formats for several years now, and he also had the honour of hitting the winning runs the last time the club won a major title, the 2016 T20 Blast.
He has scored 16 first-class centuries and 19 half-centuries, racking up 6,037 runs at an average of 31.11. He has also snared 142 wickets, with a career-best haul of nine for 52.
In List A cricket, he has scored 1,843 runs (at 32.91) and taken 28 wickets, while in T20 he has also topped four figures, hitting 1,096 runs at an average of 26.09 and a strike-rate just shy of 118. He has also chipped in with 16 wickets.
Keogh, who signed a new contract last summer that will see him stay at the County Ground until the end of the 2025 season, is delighted and proud to have been awarded a testimonial.
"A testimonial year isn't something that's awarded lightly, so this is a real honour to receive," said Keogh.
"I'm proud to have called Northamptonshire my home for the past 14 years and hope supporters could see I've given my all whenever I'm on the field.
"I still have so much to give in my playing career but 2024 will be a particularly exciting year.
"It's a chance to celebrate my time with the club so far and hopefully give back to everyone who has supported me on my journey.
"I'll be supporting some amazing charities throughout the year and will look to hold some exciting events.
"Thank you again to the club for the amazing opportunity and to the supporters for always having my back.
"Here's to an exciting 2024 on and off the field."
