WILTSHIRE County Cricket Club's hopes of reaching the next stage of the Unicorns Knock Out Trophy were all but extinguished when they suffered an eight-wicket defeat away at Hertfordshire on Sunday.

Only an unlikely set of results in the final round of matches will now see them qualify for the knockout stage.

Wiltshire won the toss at Hertford CC and chose to take first use of an excellent batting track.

The innings was dominated by a superb century from former South Wilts skipper Tom Morton. The Wadworth man of the match scored 122 on a ground where he played as a schoolboy.

However, no other player reached 50 - the other main contributions in their 292-8 coming from Jake Lintott, 46, and Michael Coles, 31.

In reply, the Hertfordshire openers attacked some wayward Wiltshire bowling and after ten overs had quickly amassed 80 without loss.

Steve Gale, 143, and Jamie Southgate put on a stunning 217 for the first wicket before Southgate, 89, was out.

Although Gale also departed, the hosts coasted to 293-2 and victory with four overs remaining.

Wiltshire next match is their Western Division of the Unicorns County Championship opener against Oxfordshire at Great & Little Tew on June 4-6. Play is scheduled to start at 11m each day.
