Gloucestershire then scored very quickly with Lewis Rollinson getting 75 from 115 balls and Shafi getting 32 from 60 balls. However, in the end, Gwent restricted Gloucester to 159 with some tight bowling and excellent ground fielding.

Gloucestershire then took some quick wickets with George Lloyd going for 34 and Parsons, not long after, for 45. Gwent just couldn’t get the ball to the boundary because of some tight bowling and excellent fielding and fell just 16 runs short.  This was an excellent performance from the boys with 6 new age group players in the team.

208 all out Gwent won

by132 runs

Thanks to some great work by the Newport groundstaff the game went ahead, on the artificial strip, in pretty wet conditions. After being put into bat Gwent started strongly with Cruz Morgan and Harrison Parsons (38) putting on 61 for the first wicket before Morgan was caught at mid-off. Tom Norton, then came in and scoredquick fire 67 which included nine boundaries. Gwent then lost quick wickets, with Jack Watkins taking 4 for 22 in just three overs, but a last wicket partnership of 40 between Aneurin Evans and Toby Palmer ensured they scored more that 200.

West Glamorgan got off to a bad start with two quick run outs thanks to excellent fielding firstly by Morgan and then by Norton ably assisted by some good glove-work from Iwan Jones. After that they offered little resistance to a good Gwent seam attack and were bowled out in the twenty-fifth over with Morgan and Josh Mason taking two wickets each.

Best Performances: Tom Norton 67, Harrison Parsons 38

Gwent were put in to bat on a very soft wicket. Things didn’t start well for Gwent when they found themselves 40 for 4 due to some poor shot selection. They then settled down to achieve a competitive total in their thirty overs.  Tom Norton compiled an excellent and mature 57 runs and he was well supported by the lower order batters.

Devon had a great start getting to 50 off ten overs without losing a wicket.  Gwent then got took two quick wickets with Cai Couchman getting his first for the county with a good spell of leg spin bowling They continued to take wickets with Toby Palmer getting also getting two and there was an Aneurin Evans run-out.  Devon needed just four runs off the last over and, after hitting two runs off the first ball and then losing two wickets, it was down to the last ball where they managed to get the winning run.

Gwent won

by 2 wkts


Gwent bowled first on a very green pitch and got off to a flying start with some great bowling and fielding. Toby Palmer took two early wickets as Wiltshire were restricted to 50 for 5. However, they fought back with Toby Day and Sam Ashman helping them to a reasonable total. Gwent's performance in the field and with the ball was of a high standard; Cai Couchman took a catch and effected a run-out.

In contrast, Gwent's batting started poorly, losing three wickets to run-outs.  However, Harry Parsons continued his good form and scored a quickfire 36 including a big six over mid wicket, before getting out to a great catch.  The lower order then batted sensibly and Gwent got over line with two wickets and three overs to spare.

Gwent won

by 70 runs


Gwent loss the toss and batted first on a good wicket.  They got off to a great start keeping the board ticking and were 65 for 1 at drinks.  However, Somerset then brought their spinners on and took five wickets in very quick succession. Forced to rebuild, Toby Palmer got Gwent up to a competitive total of with an unbeaten 16 from some sensible batting, although, to be fair, most of the Gwent runs came in extras from some poor bowling and fielding by the opposition.

After tea, Gwent came onto the field looking to strike early and put pressure on Somerset and from some tight bowling and outstanding fielding got their rewards and reduced Somerset to 30 for 5. Palmer took three wickets and John Newington Bridges and Harper Leigh two each and Aneurin Evans effected a run-out. Somerset looked to fight back with some runs from Jonah Hopkins and Dexter Trego but  Gwent’s good quality fielding and bowling continued to pay off and they bowled Somerset out with six overs left of their innings.

Cardiff & Vale     Report awaited from manager
Mid Glamorgan

184 for 5

61 all out Gwent won

by 123 runs

Mid Glamorgan won the toss and elected to bowl first given a green wicket and overcast conditions. At first this seemed a good toss to win as Gwent lost an early wicket in the second over. However, some mindful batting from George Lloyd and Cruz Morgan (20) got Gwent off to the start they wanted. The pair were dismissed shortly after drinks, with Lloyd making a fine 46, but then Ollie Taylor (34) and Harper Leigh (32) continued in the same vein, both scoring in the trhirties, allowing Gwent to reach a challenging total from their 35 overs.  

Mid Glamorgan started their innings in an identical fashion to Gwent losing a wicket in the second over due to some accurate bowling by Toby Palmer. unlike Gwent, however, Mid Glamorgan never managed to recover and lost wickets at consistent intervals. Cai Couchman continued to apply the pressure with some masterful leg spin bowling, and then taking an outstanding catch at cover to leave Mid Glamorgan well short of the Gwent total. He finished with the best figures of 3 for 8 from his three overs with Palmer taking 2 for 5.

Best Performances: George Lloyd 46, Cai Couchman 3 for 8, Ollie Taylor 34, Harper Leigh 32

110 all out Herefordshire

won by 66 runs

Gwent won the toss on a very soft wicket and had no hesitation to bowl first. They got off to a great start getting a wicket in the first over from a run out by Josh Mason and then managed to get another in the next over. However, it went rather downhill after that with Jack Snead (42) and Alexander Morris (51) scoring quickly aided by some indifferent fielding from Gwent apart from a George Lloyd run out. Herefordshire continued to score runs with ease and managed a sizeable score from their 35 overs.

Gwent needed a good start but this didn’t happen as theylost wickets very quickly leaving them 36 for 4 off 10 Overs. The middle order did provide some resistance to the Herefordshire bowlers with Ieaun Evans getting a very hard fought 24. On his dismissal, however, the remaining wickets soon fell and Gwent were dismissed with six overs of their innings remaining.

Gwent then continued to add to the total with all the top five getting into double figures to get their side to a creditable total off twenty overs.

Gwent continued scoring in the same vein with Tom Norton making 24 and ensuring a massive score in twenty overs.
