WILTSHIRE County Cricket Club completed their warm up matches over the Easter Bank Holiday weekend with two defeats.

On Sunday they played Berkshire at North Maidenhead CC for the Marlborough Cup.

A 132-run defeat meant Berkshire regained the traditional pre-season trophy after a period of four years.

Berkshire won the toss and amassed 304-8 in their 50 overs. J. Davies scored 80 and James Morris 82 while for Wiltshire there were two wickets each for James Arney, Joe King, Ashur Morrison and Archie Easton.

In reply, Wiltshire were never in the hunt to achieve the very daunting target and were all out for 172 off 42 overs - Wes Durston scoring 32, Jake Lintott 41 and Billy Cookson 28 not out.

On Monday they took on Dorset at North Perrott where they lost a close match by two wickets.

Put in to bat, Wiltshire were all out for 195 off 48 overs.

Ashur Morrison scored 44, Neil Clark 54 and Jon Sore 26 while Mark Wolstenholme took 3-54 for the hosts.

Dorset were struggling in reply at 37-5 until a partnership of 102 between Luke Webb, 58, and Sam Thomson, 49, regained the initiative. However, they got home with 11 balls remaining, scoring 196-8.

Brannon Varley took 4-26, but Wiltshire contributed to the Dorset total with 55 extras including 36 in wides.

This Sunday (April 23), Wiltshire open their group matches in the Unicorns Knock Out Trophy with a match against Buckinghamshire at Warminster, starting at 11am.

Wiltshire squad v Buckinghamshire: Ed Young (Potterne, captain), James Arney (Cosham), Andy Carroll (Westbury), Neil Clark (Potterne), Michael Coles (Westbury), Wes Durston (Oakham), Archie Easton (Devizes), Joe King (Corsham), Jake Lintott (Clevedon), Ashur Morrison (Corsham), Tom Morton (Ealing, wicket keeper), Mikey Reynolds (Trowbridge).
