Howgego and White lead seconds' charge

Centuries from Ben Howgego and Graeme White boosted Northamptonshire's Second XI to a healthy total on the opening day of their Championship match against Gloucestershire at Thornbury.

Howgego, the former County batsman currently playing for Finedon Dolben and Cambridgeshire, hit 134 and White 111 in Northamptonshire's 391 all out after winning the toss.

The pair added 212 for the sixth wicket after a modest start - and the home side then slipped to 75-4 in reply at the close.

The match resumes on Wednesday.
