Rob Keogh made his Northants debut in 2012, and the most distinct change in that time has not so much been his consistency with the bat but his emergence as an off-spinner.
There were signs of a future as a productive allrounder in 2016 when, along with a maiden List A century against Durham, he took 9 for 52 to skittle Glamorgan at Wantage Road, the sixth-best first class figures in Northamptonshire's history. He would finish the season with 31 dismissals, which he bettered in 2022 with 34 and a very respectable average of 30.23. That season saw his second five-wicket haul - 5 for 31 in a precious win against Kent. Coupled with 804 Division One runs, it cemented his status as a batting allrounder.
Keogh's breakthrough innings came at the end of the 2013 summer when he made 221 against Hampshire in a late-season fixture. Life was gloomy for Northants as they were relegated in 2014, but at least Keogh retained his knack of a late-season flourish with a century in the final match against Sussex at Hove, providing further encouragement that he could play a leading role in Northants' recovery. His unbeaten 163 against Derbyshire at Derby was another redoubtable effort as he held out for the draw with Northants nine down, accompanied in the closing overs by his injured captain Alex Wakely batting at No. 11. A snapped finger tendon severely disrupted his 2018 season.
