Scorecard

Gary Keedy, Lancashire's left-arm spinner, picked up 7 for 132 on the final day at Old Trafford, but Gloucestershire, helped by a century from Chris Taylor, still made 289 to set Lancashire an improbable 290 to win. Keedy's second innings haul, after his 7 for 95 in the first, took his match tally to 14 for 227 - a career best.

Gloucestershire lost Craig Spearman, caught by Mark Chilton off the bowling of Sajid Mahmood, with only 10 on the board this morning. After that, wickets fell regularly as, Apart from Taylor, no batsman made more than Mike Hussey's 45. This was Hussey's last match for Gloucestershire, as he takes over as Durham's new captain next season.

After Keedy had wrapped up Gloucestershire's innings by having Ian Fisher caught behind by Warren Hegg, Lancashire found themselves in some trouble at 12 for 3 in reply, with Iain Sutcliffe and Andrew Cook both out for ducks. But Mal Loye (45) and Carl Hooper (43) made sure that was as bad as it got for Lancashire with an unbeaten 87-run stand, although the match was overshadowed by the confirmation of Lancashire's relegation.
