LEG-spinner Michael Munday was the hero as Somerset ended a wonderful season last Friday, by completing an innings and 121-run hammering of Nottinghamshire in Division Two of the Liverpool Victoria Championship.

Munday snapped up an incredible 8-55 from 16 overs on his home debut to bowl Nottinghamshire out for 190 in their second innings and secure an emphatic victory just before receiving the title trophy.

That completed match figures of 10-65 for the delighted 22-year-old former England U-19 player who has been tipped for big things.

He said: "It's terrific. It was my home debut here at Taunton and to take 8-55 in the second innings is brilliant."

Notts got the three bonus points they needed to be promoted with Somerset but they were simply brushed aside by the Cidermen who had already been confirmed as champions having won eight of their last ten games.

Somerset needed less than an hour on the final day last Friday to take the remaining three Notts second innings wickets.

Spinners Munday and Ian Blackwell (2-65) did all the damage to dismiss the visitors for 190 after Somerset had smashed 469 all out.

That innings was built on a fifth-wicket stand of 204 between Marcus Trescothick and Ian Blackwell who both hit centuries after Somerset had been reduced to 98-4. Blackwell blasted 141 from 121 deliveries, while Trescothick's was a more patient 112 from 215.

After they were dismissed, Pete Trego came to the fore, emphasising what a superb season he has had by making 113 not out from just 120 balls.

Trego, who finally looks to be fulfilling his ample potential, was one of four Somerset players to play more than three first class matches and finish with an average over 50.

On the first day, Somerset skittled the visitors out for a paltry 158 with Charl Willoughby (4-39) the pick of the bowlers.
