Keith Andrew was a competent county wicketkeeper who had the misfortune to represent England only twice - and each time to find himself on the losing side in heavy defeats. His debut came at Brisbane in 1954-55 when Godfrey Evans, whose presence was the largely the reason Andrew played so little, was incapacitated. It was an ordeal by fire as Australia ran up over 600 and England wilted, losing the Test by an innings. His second appearance was nine years later, against West Indies, and again he kept during a 500+ innings, conceding three byes. With other wicketkeeper-batsmen, especially John Murray, to the fore, Andrew's relative inability with the bat counted heavily against him in the minds of the selectors. Always tidy, if not spectacular, behind the stumps, he also captained Northamptonshire for five years with some success. He was made an honorary member of the MCC after retirement, and for a period was NCA director of coaching.
