Who is Gareth White?

Gareth Andrew White is an English cricketer who played one List A fixture for Cumberland County Cricket Club. He also played at minor counties level for the Leicestershire, Northamptonshire and Kent Second XIs.

With a successful record at Cumbria Schools Cricket Association from Under 13 level to Under 19 level, White was selected for the North of England Schools at both Under 14 and Under 19 levels, with mixed success.

After becoming the youngest player to score a century in the Cumbria Cricket League at 15 for Cockermouth, White joined Netherfield in the Northern League aged 17, and became the youngest centurion in that league, scoring 115 not out against Blackpool at Parkside Road. Netherfield won their first league title in that season.

White represented Leicestershire Second XI in two fixtures in 1997, against Northamptonshire Second XI at Grace Road in August and against Lancashire Second XI at Aigburth in September.

White was then signed by Ashwood CC in the Eastern Suburbs Cricket Association of Melbourne to become their overseas player for the 1997–98 season. He performed well in Australia and returned to the UK for pre-season matches with Leicestershire.
