Keith Newell joined Glamorgan in 1999 after five years on the Sussex staff. The right-handed all-rounder was on the M.C.C. groundstaff, before making his debut for Sussex in a Sunday League match in 1993.
Newell subsequently made his first-class debut in 1995, and during that summer recorded a career best 135 against the touring West Indians at Hove. Newell also became a regular member of Sussex`s one day team, and on several occasions played alongside his brother Mark, who played for Sussex from 1996 until 1998, and also for Derbyshire in 1999.
Keith Newell made his Glamorgan debut on the Welsh county`s tour to South Africa in 1998/99, and a match-winning half-century in the day-night contest with Lancashire led to his inclusion in the Glamorgan side at the start of the 1999 season. He subsequently made some useful contributions, particularly in the one-day games, and in the second half of the 2000 season, he became the county`s opening batsman in one-day games.
In the Nat West Trophy matches, Newell hit 129 against Dorset, and then made a match-winning 62* against Kent. Two attractive half centuries in National League games against Hampshire and Essex confirmed Newell`s abilities as a free scoring batsman, and he played some useful innings in one-day games in 2001 as Glamorgan won Division Two of the Norwich Union League.
He lost his place in Glamorgan`s one-day side in 2002 and was subsequently released at the
end of the season. (Contributed by Andrew Hignell - October 2002)
