SOMERSET made it two wins out of two in the Royal London One-Day Cup by beating Glamorgan away on Sunday.

Hildreth was able to add another 10 runs before he was caught at long-off..

Somerset’s last two wickets added 83 with Craig Overton leading the way with an undefeated 41 before he helped share the first five wickets with Josh Davey.
