Jack Brooks and Alex Wakely have been awarded their Northamptonshire caps.

The pair were presented with the caps by club chairman Martin Lawrence during the lunch interval on the first day of the County Championship clash with Yorkshire at the County Ground.

Both Brooks and Wakely have become mainstays of the County side in the past couple of years and the caps are a reward for their efforts.

Brooks’ rise to prominence has earned him recognition at England Lions level and Wakely was involved with the England Performance programme in the winter.
