SEAN Wallbridge, who took over 230 Minor Counties wickets for Dorset in a 10-year span, showed he had lost none of his old touch by bowling the county Over-50s side to a six-wicket ECB Championship win over Hampshire at Blandford.

The left-arm orthodox left-arm spinner took 5-23 to initiate a Hampshire collapse from 57 without loss to 125-9 - a target Dorset polished off with some comfort.

Hampshire's batsmen found it hard going after Dorset had won the toss, but totally lost their way after a promising start by Darren McBride (27) and Gary Clapham (25).

Wallbridge, who plies his trade for Bere Regis these days, snapped up five of the next Hampshire wickets to fall - Brendan Fourie, who played provincial cricket in South Africa in his prime, keeping his side afloat with an unbeaten 45.

Dorset lost Jim Ryall and Martin Miller cheaply, but Gary French (47) and Errol Anderson (40) took control to steer their side to a six-wicket win with 14 balls to spare.
