·1-min read

Josh de Caires, the teenage son of former England captain Michael Atherton, has made an unbeaten hundred for Leeds/Bradford MCC Universities against Yorkshire on the third and final day of their friendly match.

The 18-year-old, who last August signed a three-year deal with Middlesex, resumed on 94 at Headingley on Wednesday against a bowling attack comprising of England international David Willey, plus Ben Coad, Steven Patterson and Matt Fisher.

De Caires duly made his way to three figures and was caught off a no-ball on 103 before retiring on 118 from 292 balls to help the student side to 3-302 at lunch in response to Yorkshire's 5-485 declared.

De Caires, who came through the Middlesex academy and made his second XI bow for the county aged 15, is yet to make his first-class debut.
