Denotes a gold star performance of scoring 30 or more runs or taking three or more wickets.







Cardiff & Vale

97 for 8





129 all out


Cardiff & Vale won by 2 wickets on revised target

Gwent batted first and posted a challenging score of 129 all out on a difficult pitch with Scott O’Leary, Jack Waters and Krishnan Hariharan scoring most of the runs.

In reply Cardiff & Vale were in trouble at 43- 5 but, because of the time running out, a finish was contrived by setting them a revised target 97 in 25 overs which they achieved in the very last over for the loss of 8 wickets. The policy of trying to give everyone a bowl meant that no less than seven players took wickets!  They were well supported by some excellent fielding.

Best Performances: Scott O’Leary 25, Jack Waters 24, Krishnan Hariharan 17. Ellis James, Dewi Thomas, Aadil Hassan, Oscar Waters, Sion Hayward, George Bazley, William Smale each took a wicket. Toby Haines and George Bazley each took catch.


West Glamorgan

91 all out



146 for 9


Gwent won

by 55 runs

Gwent won the toss and batted first and posted a very good 146-9 off 40 overs with Scott O’Leary getting his maiden 50 for his county. He was well supported by Krishnan Hariharan and Dewi Thomas.

In reply West Glamorgan struggled against an excellent all round fielding and bowling display from Gwent with everyone contributing. Sion Hayward tore the West Glamorgan top order to shreds with 3 wickets for 8 runs off only 4 overs and Richard Monnington took 2 wickets in his spell. Only Nathan Lee reached double figures for West Glamorgan and they succumbed to 91 all out in 31 overs with, once again, seven bowlers taking wickets.

Best Performances: Scott O’Leary 50, Sion Hayward 3-8, Richard Monnington 2-7, Krishnan Hariharan 20, Dewi Thomas 18.  Tomos Evans, Oscar Waters, Lewis Clutton, George Bazley, Jack Waters each took a wicket.  Lewis Clutton and William Smale each took a catch.



68 all out




123 for 7


Gwent won

by 55 runs

Gwent again batted first and, in between the showers, reached 123-7 in 33 overs with Richard Monnington getting 30 and Krishnan Hariharan 23. Wicketkeeper Toby Haines also weighed in with 19.

In reply Gwent again bowled and fielded superbly and restricted Camarthen to 68 all out in 29.2 overs.  Dewi Thomas only bowled one over for Gwent but in it he took a remarkable 3 wickets for 1 run.  Top-scorer Scott O'Leary turned to bowling in this game to take two wickets but only six bowlers managed a wicket in this game!  The fielding maintained its high standard with three catches and a run-out.

Best Performances: Richard Monnington 30, Dewi Thomas 3-1, Krishnan Hariharan 23, Toby Haines 19, Scott O'Leary 2-8. George Bazley, Lewis Clutton, Ellis James and Tomos Evans took one wicket apiece.  Ellis James took two catches and Dewi Thomas one plus a run-out.



This proved to be a very good Festival for Gwent.  Although we won two, and felt we would have had a good chance of winning the third if it had been played in full, the aim was to give everyone of the fourteen players as much opportunity as possible to perform with bat and ball.  This we believe we achieved with up to twelve bowlers bowling in a game.  Four Gold Stars were awarded, which was just one less than in the seven matches during the rest of the season.  The fielding was of the highest standard and the boys kept up their record of not dropping a catch all season. The boys worked as a cohesive unit throughout, very ably led by their captain William Smale.  Their behaviour on and off the field was impeccable and the enthusiasm undimmed even when their coaches made them go to bed at 10pm and  get up at 6.30am!  The squad came third in the Spirit of Cricket Award.




Cardiff & Vale

66 all out





67 for 3



Gwent won by

On winning the toss, Gwent asked Cardiff to bat first and a superb all round bowling and fielding performance by the young Gwent squad saw Cardiff all out for just 66 runs in 33.3 overs. No less than seven bowlers took a wicket with Richard Monnington being the pick taking 2 wickets for just 2 runs in 3.3 overs. They were well supported by the fielders with Thomas Lynbeck and Scott O’Leary both taking a catch and Aadil Hassan a direct hit run out.

The wicket did play a little low and slow but the Gwent batsmen handled it very well reaching their target in the 25th over for the loss of only 3 wickets with Scott O'Leary top scoring.

Somerset batted first on a good pitch and got a very competitive 163 – 5 off their 35 overs. Gwent took three early wickets and fielded really well but faltered under the very warm conditions in the last ten overs.

In reply Gwent made a great start Dewi Thomas and William Smale putting on 46 for the first wicket in only 11 overs but after the drinks break a run out first ball sparked a major collapse and Gwent were all out for 103 in 33.2 overs.

In reply Gwent struggled at first, losing 3 wickets for 20 in 5 overs, but a 45-run unbroken partnership between and  steered Gwent home with only 16.1 overs gone.

133 all out


Dorset won by

67 runs

Dorset won the toss and batted first and were in trouble at 10 for 2 in the third over and then lost wickets steadily to some good Gwent bowling and fielding. After the second drinks break, however, the Dorset staged a recovery with S. Currie (80) & M. Fisher (24) putting on 72 for the ninth wicket and they finished on a formidable total.

In reply Gwent started really well getting to 45-2 after 10 overs but a middle order collapse reduced them to 78-8 after 27 overs.  George Bazley and Toby Haines then nearly emulated their opponents by putting on 53 for the ninth wicket with George hitting 34 off 16 balls. Gwent lasted all but one of their allotted overs to reached a creditable total in the circumstances.

77 for 3




100 all out



Match abandoned as a draw

After a delayed start Gwent batted first on a good pitch and began very well with an opening partnership of 40 between Scott O'Leary and William Smale off ten overs.  A steady fall of wickets, however, saw them all out for 100 with only three batsmen getting into double figures and Krishnan Hariharan top-scoring with 19.

In reply, Wiltshire got off to a similar start with the openers putting on 55 for the first wicket off 15 overs, when a rain break resulted in a rearranged target of 86.  Gwent fought back taking three wickets in the next four overs as a result of two catches, by Aadil Hassan and William Smale, the latter a fine effort low down off a hard hit shot, and a run-out by Krishnan.  Heavy rain then set in and the match had to be abandoned.

Best Performances: Krishnan Hariharan 19, Scott O'Leary 16, Tomos Evans 10, Aadil Hassan and Ben Hope-Bell each took a wicket.



82 for 3



78 all out


Devon won

by 7 wickets

Gwent were asked to bat first in good conditions on a good looking pitch and got off to a blistering start scoring 52 off only 10 overs. Unfortunately they had lost 5 wickets in the process and two more followed in the eleventh over. At 56 for 7 Gwent were in real trouble but battled on to 78 all out with twelve overs left of their innings.  The pick of the batters was Sion Hayward with a quick-fire 29.

In reply Devon also found themselves in trouble losing 3 early wickets, with Gwent bowling and fielding very well, but an unbroken 50-run partnership for the fourth wicket secured victory in only the 22nd over.  Lloyd Saunders bowled well taking 2 wickets in his 4 overs and Ben Hope-Bell only conceded 3 runs in his 4 overs.

Gwent won

by 19 runs

Gwent won the toss and batted first on a very good wicket.  They got off to a solid, but rather slow start,  scoring just 16 off the first 10 overs.  With wickets in hand, the run-rate then increased and, after the allotted 35 overs, they had posted a competitive total of 120. Thomas Lynbeck played the anchor role while Jack Waters and George Bazley added impetus to the scoring rate.  Thomas and Jack were both retired on reaching thirty.

In reply Herefordshire struggled against some accurate bowling from all the Gwent bowlers backed up by some excellent fielding and never looked likely to reach the target.  The pick of the Gwent bowlers was Tomos Evans who took 3 wickets for only 3 runs in 5 overs.

Best Performances: Tomas Evans 3-3 Thomas Lynbeck 30no, Jack Waters 33no, George Bazley 16.  Lloyd Saunders, Ben Hope-Bell, Thomas Lynbeck and Dewi Thomas each took a wicket.   Nathan Berry, Tomos Evans, Dewi Thomas each took a catch and Adil Hassan a run-out.
