**The shire lose to Notts by 9 runs via Duckworth-Lewis in their second pro40 match, at Cheltenham.
**Winter witnessed an improved bowling display - particularly from Will Rudge - but then failings once again in the top order batting contributed to falling behind the D/L rate once the rain arrived.
**The shire's 3rd pro40 - against Sussex - is washed out without a ball being bowled.
**THE GLOS WIN!! A dramatic penultimate-ball 2-wicket win over Hampshire in the final Cheltenham festival fixture gives the shire their first win since mid-June!

**RICHARD DAWSON has signed a two-year contract with the shire.
**Glos lose by 21 runs against Worcester in a crunch pro40 match at New Road.

**A disappointing end to a poor season for the shire. The final match told the story of the season - a distinct lack of runs from a seemingly talented batting line up; and poor back-up bowling.
