Somerset Seconds made short work of finishing off their match against Sussex at Hastings this morning.

Resuming on 349 for 5, it was veteran all rounder Graham Rose, who had scored an unbeaten century earlier in the match who made the vital breakthrough that led to a collapse by the home team.

Sussex were all out for 402 before lunch, with Jason Kerr ending with 3 for 42 to give Somerset victory by an innings and 38 runs.

Somerset take 20 points from their second win in the Second Eleven Championship.

The Seconds are in action again next Wednesday when they take on M.C.C. Young Cricketers in a three day match at Clevedon Cricket Club.
