Peter Trego claimed four second-innings wickets as Somerset beat Hampshire to secure their first County Championship win of the season.

Hampshire reached 341 after starting the final day on 212-3, with Trego ending with figures of 4-74.

Liam Dawson hit a career-best 169 but the hosts could only add 129 for their last seven wickets.

Somerset only lost Marcus Trescothick (23) as they reached their target of 114 to clinch a nine-wicket victory.

Hampshire were 16 behind when play resumed with Dawson starting the day on 103.

But despite him adding a further 66 runs, the hosts were skittled out with relative ease as their last four batsmen contributing just 13.

Trego trapped James Vince lbw with Hampshire on 245, just 17 runs ahead, before Nic Pothas (10) and Sean Ervine (9) soon followed.

The Somerset paceman then bowled Cork for 16 before dismissing Dawson and Griffiths leg before either side of Danny Briggs (1) being sent back to the pavillion by Steve Kirby.
