Max magic sinks Wilts
SPINNER Max Shepherd (Bourton Vale) took 4-21 as Gloucestershire Under 17 Development cruised to a seven wicket win over Wiltshire.
The left armer the last four wickets to fall as the visitors collapsed from 47-1 to 116 all out after having elected to bat first.
Wilts had recovered well after Adam Hares (1-17) (Bedminster) removed opener William Pritchett (1) with the score on 8.
But when Alex Wilson (1-22) (Twyford House) got rid of the other opening batsman Edward Wade (29) it sparked a run of five wickets falling for just 15 runs.
Three of those wickets fell with the score on 62 as Alfie Lewis (1-17) (Stapleton), Oliver Wood (1-7) (Cirencester) and Sam Swingwood (2-25) (Monmouth) did the damage.
Ben Higton (29) played well to try and keep his side in the game but the introduction of Shepherd ended any hopes of posting a challenging total.
Chasing 117 to win, Glos lost three wickets but the result was never in danger as Ewen Gegg (Frocester) held the innings together with unbeaten 50 from 59 balls (8 fours), supported by 28 not out from Lewis.
