Gloucestershire Over-50s lose unbeaten record to Warwickshire
GLOUCESTERSHIRE remain on course to reach the knockout stages of the ECB's Over-50 Championship, despite losing their unbeaten record in pool play to leaders Warwickshire at Shirehampton.
The home side were bowled out for 138, as opener Martyn Bowyer top-scored with 36 on familiar home surroundings.
Warwickshire were in full control at 73-1 before sliding to 87-6 as Shire's Kenny Earl (2-23), Bowyer (2-21) and Keynsham's John Courtney (1-26) put the squeeze on.
But Duncan Gardner (40 not out) kept his composure to guide the visitors to victory with more than three overs to spare.
