Unicorns produced their first win in the Clydesdale Bank 40 as they bowled out Glamorgan for 173 to win by 58 runs at Dean Park, Bournemouth.

Skipper Keith Parsons hit 89, sharing a tidy fourth-wicket stand of 126 with Worcestershire old boy Josh Knappett as Unicorns ran up 231-8.

Young paceman Will Owen took 5-49 on his one-day debut for Glamorgan.

But, after a promising start, Mark Cosgrove smashing 64 off just 40 balls, Glamorgan fell badly away with the bat.

Unicorns climb above Glamorgan to seventh in the Group C table.

Glamorgan director of cricket Matthew Maynard:
"Apart from Mark Cosgrove I'm just very, very disappointed [with our batting], we didn't get the partnerships together when we were chasing.

"We should have chased that down, there was a lot of complacency and a lot of bad shots.

"Maybe the guys got carried away after some good batting performances and didn't do the basics.

"I don't think that there was complacency in facing an amateur team, we were fairly sharp in the field - the complacency came in the batting.

"I would have thought that we are out of this competition after one point from four games.

"We're learning as a side, we've got a young team and we have to up our performances.

"We want a good show at home to Surrey on Friday.

"It was the first bad collective batting performance of the summer so they will get another opportunity."
