Kettleborough ton in vain

James Kettleborough's battling century proved in vain as Northamptonshire lost to Kent by an innings and 84 runs in the Second XI Championship match at Beckenham.

Resuming on 141-4, still needing 214 to make the home side bat again, the County were eventually dismissed for 271.

Kettleborough was the eighth man out for 120 - made off 198 balls - but there was little in the way of support.

The seconds will hope for better things when they travel down to Sussex for four days of cricket at Horsham next week.
