  • Day One

    Rain affects opening day for Second XI

    Gloucestershire finished a rain affected opening day on 185/4 at the County Ground in Bristol, in Lancashire Second XI's final game of the season.

    Lancashire Captain Stephen Parry won the toss and elected to bowl first and it looked like an inspired decision as Gloucestershire lost early wickets.

    Toby Lester struck twice in four balls to dismiss Gilmore and Cockbain to leave the hosts struggling on 11/2.

    The hosts rebuilt their innings through Noemi-Barnett (60) and Benny Howell (92) with the pair both going past their half centuries.

    The pair put on 127 for the third wicket before Luis Reece made the breakthrough. Just before the rain started again, Nathan Buck took his first wicket of the day, dismissing Howell with Guest taking a safe catch behind.

  • Day Two

    Honours even after Day Two for Second XI

    Lancashire Second XI closed Day Two of their final fixture of the season on 127/2, replying to Gloucestershire's 375 all out at the County Ground, Bristol.

    Mark Chilton's side took two early wickets at the start of Day Two with Stephen Parry trapping Hammond (37) LBW before Arron Lilley dismissed Garrett without scoring.

    Brace (101) continued on his way for the hosts and went to his century before he was bowled by Matthew Parkinson and Gloucestershire were then bowled out for 375. Arron Lilley (3/56) and Matthew Parkinson (2/44) were the standout Lancashire bowlers.

    In reply, Lancashire put on 36 for the opening wicket before Luis Reece (16) was dismissed. Former Sussex and Northamptonshire all-rounder and current trialist Christian Davis (53*) then hit a composed half century for Lancashire as the Red Rose closed on 127/2 at the close of Day Two.

  • Day Three

    Guest and Lilley star on Day Three in Bristol

    Brooke Guest hit his first century of the summer for Lancashire Second XI on Day Three against Gloucestershire in Bristol.

    Trialist Christian Davis (73) was dismissed which brought Guest to the crease and the former Australia U19 wicket keeper batsman played positively from the outset.

    Danny Lamb (15) and Bradley Yates (5) lost their wickets cheaply before Guest and Parry (28) put on a partnership worth 59 for the seventh wicket.

    Lancashire's lower order continued to contribute with important runs with Lilley (21) and Buck (20) enabling Guest to reach his century. Mark Chilton's side were eventually bowled out for 394, with Guest (130) the last wicket to fall, a lead of 19.

    Gloucestershire's second innings started steadily with the opening pair of Garrett and Noemi-Barnett putting on 59 for the first wicket before Arron Lilley made the breakthrough. Lilley went on to take three further wickets in quick succession to leave the hosts 102/4 at the close.

  • Day Four

    Lilley and Brown star in Second XI victory

    Lancashire Second XI completed a convincing ten wicket win over Gloucestershire in Bristol to complete a very successful summer for Mark Chilton's side.

    Resuming the final day on 102/4, Gloucestershire lost Benny Howell early on as Arron Lilley took his fifth wicket of the second innings.

    Toby Lester took his opening wicket bowling Gilmore without scoring before the hosts collapsed to 159 all out from 58.5 overs.

    Lilley finished with figures of 7/67 whilst Toby Lester took 2/28.

    Lancashire were set the target of 141 to win and Karl Brown (76*) and Luis Reece (59*) both started the fourth and final innings of the game in positive fashion.

    Both batsmen passed their half centuries and eased Lancashire to victory by ten wickets.
