Gloucestershire

159 for 6

163 for 3 Gwent won

by 7 wkts

Gwent asked Gloucestershire to bat first and they posted what was considered a decent score of 159-6 in 35 overs. Ollie Thompson batted very well for 52 and he was well supported by Sammy Hamid (26) & Jack Studley with 22 not out. For Gwent Ben Kellaway bowled an excellent spell of 7 overs taking 3-15.  Ethan Oliver also took a wicket while a good fielding display was exemplified by run-outs from Ben Kellaway and Dylan Powell and an Oliver catch.

In reply, Gwent lost their first wicket on 21 but then a 116-run partnership ensued between skipper Will Heath (41) & Ben Kellaway. Ben went to make his highest score for Gwent carrying his bat for a magnificent 97 not out as Gwent won the match with 3 balls to spare. Ben’s fifty came off 55 balls and 97 came off 81 balls. 

Best Performances: Ben Kellaway 97no & 3-15, Will Heath 41

Berkshire

172 for 4

171 for 2 Berkshire won

 by 6 wkts

On a hot day at Newport, Gwent won the toss, batted first and reached a very commendable 171 for 2 wickets off their 35 overs with Alex Horton getting a magnificent 110 not out off 104 balls. He was ably assisted by Ben Kellaway (19 ret hurt) and Harry Hughes (19) who helped in two 50 plus partnerships. 

This really was not a day for bowlers or fielders but, even so, Gwent didn't do themselves justice at either discipline and succumbed to a 6 wicket defeat inside 29 overs. They struggled to limit the flow of runs from Josh Jayasingh, in particular, who made 83 at close to a run-a-ball.  Ben Kellaway, Sam Protheroe and Shay Ryan each took a wicket, Darshan Selvakumaran a catch and Alex Horton a fine leg-side stumping to dismiss the dangerous Jayasingh.

Best Performance: Alex Horton 110no

Somerset

     

The match was postponed due to the weather twice!

Devon

120 all out

125 for Gwent won

by 5 wkts

Gwent won the toss and asked Devon to bat first on a green wicket which had a little moisture in it from the previous week's rain. The bowling and fielding was of the highest order and apart from L. Walker (31) & Rory Medlock (27) nobody got to grips with it. Devon succumbed to 120 all out in 34.3 over with Harry Hughes the pick of the Gwent bowlers with 2 for 9 off 5 overs. Will Heath also took two wickets with Ben Kellaway, Ollie Rayner, Oskar Rice and Matt Stewart getting one apiece.  Stewart also took a catch and a run out with Ross Mohring and Horton also taking catches and Darshan Selvakumaran effecting another run out.

In reply Gwent got off to the worst start possible losing a wicket first ball but a series of partnerships developed and Alex Horton with 78 not out was at the centre of them all.  Horton's knock came off 88 balls with 32 coming in boundaries as the target was reached with nine overs left.

Best Performance: Alex Horton 78no
Herefordshire    

The match was postponed due to the weather.  Regrettably, it has not proved possible to rearrange it.  

Cardiff & Vale

145 all out

256 for 5 Gwent won

by 111 runs

Gwent were asked to bat first on a damp, green pitch but this decision did not have the desired effect as the Gwent batters scored heavily throughout their innings. Alex Horton led the way with his second century of the season and retired on 102 not out.  He was well supported by Oscar Watkins (29), Ben Kellaway (28) and Ross Mohring (21).

In reply Cardiff got off to a good start with Benjy Mulcahy getting 40 and he was well supported by Wes Baker (17) and Griff Lloyd (15). However, the Gwent bowlers took wickets at regular intervals with two for Ollie Rayner and one apiece for Hugo Caldicott, Ross Mohring, Ethan Oliver, Sam Protheroe, Darshan Selvakumaran, and Matt Stewart. They were well supported in the field with Caldicott , Horton (2) and Mohring taking catches and Stewart involved in two run-outs.  Cardiff & Vale were bowled out, with five overs of their innings left,  for a comfortable Gwent victory.

Best Performance: Alex Horton 102no
 

Wiltshire

187 for 9

 

119 all out Wiltshire won

by 68 runs

Wiltshire won the toss and batted first on a good pitch at Newport.   In a complete opposite to the previous game, this wasn't such a good bowling performance with 35 extras conceded which rather inflated the Wiltshire total.  S. Brown scored a well-made 54 and, with O. Carr-Smith (32), he put on 88 for the fourth wicket.  There was, however, some good  fielding with Alex Horton taking 2 stumpings and Ben Kellaway (twice) and Ollie Rayner effecting run-outs.   

In reply, Gwent struggled against a well drilled Wiltshire side who bowled and fielded very well in the hot conditions. Only Harry Hughes, with 33, really troubled the scorers as Gwent lost wickets at regular intervals and were all out well short of their target but at least they had lasted for all but one ball of their 40 overs.

Best Performance:  Harry Hughes 33

Herefordshire

120 all out

171 for 8 Gwent won

by 51 runs

Gwent won the toss and batted first in hot conditions at Malpas and scored a very competitive 171-8 in their 35 overs. Opener Harry Hughes led the way with a superb 72 backed up by Matt Stewart (29), Ross Mohring (13) & Oskar Rice (11).  

In reply, Herefordshire were well contained by all the Gwent bowlers, never threatening to get near the total set by Gwent, and were all out for 120. Ollie Rayner took 2 for 5, Oskar Rice 2 for11 and Ethan Oliver 2 for 5 with Hugo Caldicott, Ben Parish, Matt Stewart and Ross Mohring each taking a wicket apiece to ensure a comprehensive victory.

Best Performance: Harry Hughes 72

 

Berkshire

112 for 5

 

111 for 9

 

Berkshire won

by 5 wkts

 

Gwent lost the toss and were asked to bat first at Hungerford CC. This decision was vindicated as both Gwent openers struggled and had only 15 runs on the board after ten overs.  It took Ben Kellaway eight overs to get off the mark but then went on to make a dogged 47 off 79 balls as Gwent were restricted to 111-9 off their 35 overs. Harry Hughes and Sam Protheroe were the only other batters to get into double figures.

In reply, Berkshire only needed 25 overs to reach the target of 112 but lost 5 wickets in the process. For Berkshire A. Arnand got a well made 44. Ollie Rayner took two wickets and Oscar Watkins and Josh Truckel one apiece.  Protheroe, Truckel and Watkins each took a catch but there were still several dropped which, along with a few missed run out opportunities,  if taken might have brought about a different result.

Best Performance: Ben Kellaway 47

 

West Glamorgan

109 for 6

 

110 for 2 Gwent won

by 8 wkts

Gwent asked West Glamorgan to bat first on a damp, green pitch at Ynysygerwn and in between the showers they were restricted to 109-6 off 35 overs with eleven bowlers used by Gwent who all contributed in one way or another. Skipper Will Heath led from the front taking 2 wickets for only 8 runs in 4 overs and was well backed up by some excellent fielding.  The other wicket-takers were Harry Hughes and Sam Protheroe with Hugo Caldicott involved in two run outs. For West Glam James Thomas batted very well getting 44 and R. Harris 16.

In reply, Gwent were given a superb start by Heath and Protheroe who put on 79 for the first wicket in 18 overs.  Protheroe made 32 but it was Heath who carried his bat for an unbeaten 53 off 56 balls to see Gwent home by 8 wickets in only 24.3 overs.

Best Performances: Will Heath 53

Gwent won

by 7 wkts

 
Gwent batted first and posted a sizeable total off their thirty-five overs. Harry Hughes batted very well for 59 and he was well supported by Sam Protheroe with 27 and Will Heath with 22. However, there were forty extras which boosted the Gwent total.

In reply Cardiff & Vale were restricted to 119-9 off their allotted overs All the Gwent bowlers contributed with Max Phillips leading the way with 4-15 off just 3 overs. For Cardiff Lewis Ingram top scored with 29 and four other batsmen reached double figures but they never really threatened the Gwent score. Gwent bowled very well and only conceded 17 extras which made a big difference.  There was also some good fielding with Will Heath and Ollie Rayner both taking catches and Josh Truckel two stumpings and a run out behind the stumps.

Best Performances: Max Phillips 4-15, Harry Hughes 59

West Glamorgan DAY 2

T20 Matches

 

 

Early morning rain delayed the start of the first T20 match. In between the showers West Glamorgan reached 67-4 off 22 overs with all Gwent bowlers having two overs each. In reply, Gwent never really got to grips with this format but finished on 60-8, just seven runs short.

Because of the weather there was only time to play an eleven overs per side match later which Gwent won easily. West Glamorgan batted first and only reached 31-6 as everyone bowled very well with five different bowlers taking  wickets.  Gwent never had any problems chasing this low score and reached it off 7.2 overs for the loss of one wicket.

Carmarthen

81 for 3

DAY 3 

115 for 1

Gwent won

by 9 wkts

Gwent were asked to bat first and in between the showers posted a respectable total in 25 overs. Josh Truckel scored his maiden county fifty and Hugo Caldicott made 34, which was his highest county score. Together they put on a 104-run unbroken partnership for the second wicket.

In reply, Carmarthenshire never real got going even though they only lost three wickets. Zac Williams (27) & Daffyd Jones (11) were the only two batsmen to trouble the scorers as they were restricted by the Gwent bowlers to 81-3 off their allotted overs.

Best Performances: Josh Truckel 53Hugo Caldicott 34
