Another very successful trip to the Aberystwyth U10 Festival for the thirteen Gwent players who made the trip.  James Archer (Malpas), Harry Bachelor (Newport), Nathan Berry (Newport), Morgan Bevans (Tredegar), Ben Davies (Monmouth), Thomas Franklin (Chepstow), Max Herring (Tredegar), Ben Hope-Bell (Newport), Joe Hill (Ebbw Vale), Alex Horton (Newbridge), Morgan Mohring (Newport), James Rhydderch-Roberts (Abergavenny), Joe Westwood (Newbridge.

The real feature of these three days was the fantastic fielding by all the Gwent boys; not only the catching, 17 catches were taken, but also the ground fielding with six run-outs effected by different players. Also the team spirit shown by these boys was second to none with a fantastic atmosphere wherever we were: on the field, around the campus or at the seafront.  GREAT!!!

Gwent won

by 31 runs

The second match on Tuesday was abandoned with Eryri only reaching 32-1 off 20 overs. Later in the day the sun came out and the teams played a 16-over match and a 10-over match on astro turf with a softball & kwik cricket equipment. Every Gwent player bowled in these matches and 4 different wicket-keepers were used!

In the 16-over match, Eryri scored a challenging total with M. Jones getting a superb 53no. Joe Hill's 3 wickets for 3 runs was an inspired spell of bowling and James Rhydderch-Roberts took 3 catches behind the stumps. In reply, Gwent reached the target with five balls remaining with James Archer retiring on 25no and Max Herring, also scoring 25no, finished the game with a six! James Rhydderch-Roberts  scored 20 and Alex Horton 19. 


The 10-over match was slightly more one-sided in Gwent's favour with them getting 71 for 2 with Harry Bachelor 30no and Joe Westwood 14no.  Eryri never got going and only managed 40-8 in their 10 overs with 'keeper Nathan Berry making 3 dismissals.


88 for 9

58 all out Cardiff & Vale won by 30 runs

The final day Gwent played Cardiff & Vale, a team they had beaten well early in the season.  However, Gwent were a very tired looking side and were outplayed by a better team on the day. Cardiff were restricted to a fairly low total, with Ben Hope-Bell and Max Herring taking two wickets apiece.  Nathan Berry had 3 victims behind the stumps.  However, the Gwent batters never really got going and were bowled out well short of the target with only Nathan Berry and Morgan Bevans getting into double figures.

Cardiff & Vale

91 for 8

91 for 3 Gwent won by 7 wickets

Gwent won the toss and asked Cardiff & Vale to bat first and they were soon in trouble against the opening bowlers on a green pitch.  They continued to struggle all the way through their innings with only G. Howard (16) & J. Richens (12) getting into double figures. Gwent used ten different bowlers who all bowled well and the Gwent fielding was of a very high standard.  The pick of the bowlers were Max Herring, who took 2 for 13, and Harry Bachelor whose five overs cost just one run with one wicket.  Thomas Franklin, Joe Westwood, Scott Williams and James Archer took one each.

Gwent only lost 3 wickets in reply and reached their target with 13 overs to spare. James Archer, Nathan Berry, Max Herring and Ben Hope-Bell each got into double figures.


201 for 2

91 for 8 Herefordshire won by 110 runs Gwent won the toss and asked Herefordshire to bat first but with some very wayward bowling were soon put to the sword by the Hereford openers A. Hinkley (71) & A. Mcintosh (45) who put on 141 for the first wicket.   Hereford finished on a very competitive 201 for the loss of only two wickets.  Gwent used 11 bowlers and they all tried very hard with Owen Humphries & Scott Williams taking the two wickets to fall.  Nobody went for a lot of runs but a total of 53 extras says a lot. Morgan Mohring and Nathan Berry took two catches.

In reply Gwent never got to grips with the better Herefordshire bowling and wickets were lost steadily throughout but they did manage to see out their full compliment of 35 overs. On a positive note, Alex Horton (17 no) & Joe Westwood (14) batted really well especially as they are both only 8 years old. Nathan Berry (Newport) & Lewis Watkins (Usk) also got into double figures as Gwent closed on 91 – 8 thus losing by 110 runs.


220 for 4

86 all out Devon won by 134 runs Gwent asked Devon to bat first in warm, overcast conditions but some wayward bowling saw Devon get off to a flyer. L. Medlock (81) & J. Moore (53 no)  batted very well. Joe Westwood, Joseph Hill, James Rhydderch-Roberts and Thomas Franklin took a wicket apiece with Nathan Berry (2), Thomas Franklin and Morgan Bevans taking the catches.

Gwent never really got going after losing a wicket to the third ball of their innings and only James Archer batted with any aplomb getting 26 with no other batsman getting double figures. Gwent ended up on 86 all out in 29.2 overs.


13 for 5



Somerset won the toss and immediately asked Gwent to bat first on a firm wicket but with a lot of damp on the top.  As expected in these conditions the ball was doing all sorts from the start and the very young Gwent batsmen struggled to get bat on ball. Only opener Charlotte Scarborough could keep the Somerset bowlers at bay.  However, only nine overs were possible when after two showers, the second one being monsoon-like, and the game was abandoned with standing water covering the square and outfield.

73 all out

77 for 3 Gwent won by

 7 wickets

A superb bowling and fielding display by Gwent after losing the toss had Herefordshire in all sorts of trouble right from the start. None of their batsmen got into double figures with Harry Bachelor, Ben Hope-Bell, Alex Horton & Scott Williams each taking two wickets for few runs with Owen Humphries and Joe Truckel taking one apiece.  Extras (30) was the top score as Herefordshire limped to 73 all out in 27 overs. Nine Gwent bowlers were used in this innings and three different wicket keepers and catches were taken by Ben Hope-Bell and James Rhydderch-Roberts.

In reply, Gwent got off to a super start with Thomas Franklin, who retired on 34, and Skipper Morgan Bevans (11) putting on 38 for the first wicket. Franklin was joined by Alex Horton (17 no) and they took the score onto 64.  Two late wickets fell before Gwent sealed victory in the 24th over.  Thomas became the first 'gold star' recipient of the season.
