Profile

Keith Parsons was Somerset through and through, born and educated in Taunton and on the Somerset books from an early age. He represented England Schools at U-15 and U-19 level before making his Somerset debut in 1992 when identical twin Kevin was also on the staff. The following year he was named as the county's Young Player of the Year and was a virtual ever-present since. In 2000 he made 193 against the touring West Indies produced his career-best first-class bowling figures for 5 for 13 against Lancashire. The following summer he made 60 off 52 balls in the C&G final and in 2005 was Somerset's leading run-scorer in the National League as well as being in all matches in the successful Twenty20 Cup campaign. However, his opportunities at the club became increasingly limited, and he wasn't picked throughout 2008 - the catalyst which prompted his retirement after a 16-year career. He pledged to represent Cornwall in the Minor Counties for 2009.
