  Somerset slip to defeat on last day of season  

SOMERSET'S season came to a disappointing end on Friday when they were beatn by Warwickshire at Edgbaston who in doing so lifted the one trophy that has eluded the Cidermen- the LV County Championship.

The host began the final day by adding 115 runs in 62 minutes to race to 294 for three with Rob Yates scoring a brilliant 132 not out (168 balls), with enterprising support from Will Rhodes (62, 44) and Matt Lamb (27 not out, 20).

That enabled a bold declaration from Rhodes who set Somerset 273 in 79 overs and then watched with delight as his team bowled and caught superbly to rattle Somerset out for 154 on a good batting pitch.

This was a disappoinitng end to the championship season for Somerset who before the start of the second stage of the competition were well in contentioan.
