Gloucestershire suffered another defeat to Somerset at Bristol this year, as their local rivals completely dominated the pro40 fixture.
The day went downhill after winning the toss, and the Shire never played with enough discipline to compete; a paltry 116 was another dreadful effort with the bat that was picked off with arrogance by Marcus Trescothick.
A good cricket wicket was exploited well by Somerset and Alfonso Thomas reduced Glos to 0-2 before shot selection totally immune to the scoreboard plunged the Shire further into trouble and at 51-7 there was no coming back.
Will Porterfield continued his miserable form by chipping a simple catch up to mid-off and Hamish Marshall had actually lead a recovery with his 23 before offering up an easy chance of his own; Chris Taylor played a one-day shot and was caught off a ball he should have left as all the batting was again exposed against the swinging ball.
Steve Adshead made 36 and shared 51 with Jon Lewis - who's hard hitting was the only bright point for the home fans on a gorgeous evening, but when Kadeer Ali spilled the simplest of chances it summed Gloucestershire's miserable cricket up in one moment.
