From Andrew Peters who is coming to the Club on 17th May at 5pm offering bats, pads, gloves and kit bags at a discount of 20% to RRP. In his words, "At last, one of the world’s best bat makers gets his own name on the willow. Tim Keeley, for many years the innovator and craftsman behind the Newbery name, has launched his own brand of bats and accessories.
Tim started at Gray Nicholls, and then went with John Newbery when he started the Newbery brand. Sadly, John died far too early, and Tim became the owner and bat maker for Newbery until he sold the business, although he kept making the bats for them until very recently.
He has made bats for some of the world’s greatest cricketers, from every major cricket country, past and present, and is constantly in demand by them. His workshop is sited at his Father’s timber yard in East Sussex, where he has hand made bats for a long time, with huge skill.
Now he and his brother Nick, have developed their own range of bats bearing the Keeley name with all the experience developed over 40 years. Hand crafted in East Sussex from English Willow. In addition, a great range of pads and gloves and kit bags rounds off the range and offers terrific product at great values for money. County players are already carrying the bats, knowing the great quality. A new brand with 40 years heritage!
