Match Report Summary 2018

Denotes a gold star performance of scoring 40 or more runs, taking three or more wickets.





196 for 6

53 all out Gloucester

won by

137 runs

Gwent welcomed Gloucestershire to Abergavenny CC for which, for most of the squad, was their very first match for the county. Gloucestershire won the toss and chose to bat first.  Their batsmen showed some great talent, despite their young age, in particular Bowden (55) and Burton (37*) caught the eye. Wickets were spread around the Gwent bowlers, who along with the rest of the team showed great character and stuck to their task throughout the innings.

Gwent started the innings losing quick wickets thanks to the bowling of Tegg (4 for 9). This was a theme throughout the innings as Taylor (3 for 6) continued Tegg’s good work. Some resistance was put up by the Gwent lower order but they never recovered from the early losses.

This was a baptism of fire for the inexperienced Gwent boys but it is hoped they will learn from the experience and improve as the season goes on.


145 fo9

48 all out Dorset

won by

97 runs

Dorset welcomed Gwent to their first away fixture at Bournemouth, where they were greeted by sunny skies and great hospitality. Gwent won the toss and, playing to their strength, decided to field first.  John Newington-Bridges and Seb Bowen took the new ball between them and kept the Dorset opening batsman on their toes.  However, a bowling change saw leg-spinner Ryan Price  take the first wicket of the innings. Further bowling changes saw Ellis Richards, Harrision Allin and Bruno Chitnis pick up wickets progressively with the Dorset batsman steadily adding to the total with some lovely stroke-play. Some excellent fielding from Chitnis and Bowen saw two more wickets fall to run-outs, with Bowen also taking a superb catch.

Gwent couldn’t quite muster a start to their innings. They lost two early wickets and, despite some stubborn resistance from Jac Couchman and Newington-Bridges, they lost wickets at regular intervals leaving them all out 97 runs short of the target.

Despite this the side continued to show great commitment on the field, and were commended for the spirit in which they played the game. It was a very good all-round bowling and fielding performance showing some lessons had been learnt from the previous match.  There is clearly development needed in the batting department and for batters to focus on 'occupying the crease'.

Best Performance: Ryan Price 2 for 23

Gwent and Devon arrived at Newport CC to be greeted with another spell of excellent weather. At the toss, Gwent’s captain Thomas Krige decided to change tactics from the first two games, choosing to bat first. After two early wickets John Newington-Bridges joined Krige at the crease. The pair showed great determination to ensure the team would bat their 35 overs, improving on the last two team batting performances. Krige played a fine innings for his 36 runs while Newington-Bridges stole the rest of the show reach with an awesome 50 not out; the first for a Gwent player this year. 

Gwent took to the field for the second innings enthused at their accomplishment in the first. They bowled and fielded to the same great standard they had done so in their previous two games. However, the Devon batsman denied them their first win of the year.  Some brilliant batting from Devon’s Alsop (46*) and Matthew Whalley (37) ensured that Gwent’s first innings total was comfortably reached.

Gwent again have shown great progress with both the bat and ball, and look for further improvement when they face Wiltshire in a weeks’ time.

Herefordshire decided to bat first on a firm, but green wicket, at Sudbrook CC.  They started well with opener Kieron Dover (27) giving the away side a steady start.  However, it wasn’t long until Gwent took their first wicket, but despite this Dover continued to strike the ball well, maintaining the solid start.  However, a bowling change saw Ellis Richards and Ryan Price come into the fray and quickly dispatch five of the Herefordshire batsman. This was a sign of things to come and with Harrison Allin taking two wickets the opposition were bowled out in 28 of the allotted 35 overs.  There was also a good fielding display with Jac Kenchington taking a catch and a run out and Harry Wallace and Teddy Smith-Milne (who shared the wicket-keeping duties) completing one dismissal each.

Gwent captain Tom Krige opened the batting looking to build on his innings from the previous game. He went on to score his first half-century for Gwent, displaying some superb stroke play. Good support came from  Jac Couchman (16*) who saw Gwent home with an eight wicket win after only 19 overs.

This was a great team performance demonstrating how well the players had learnt from the previous three matches.  So much so, that they had turned a 137-run defeat in their first match into an eight-wicket victory in their fourth.

Best Performances: Thomas Krige 51, Ellis Richards 3 for 7 and Ryan Price 2 for 15 Harrison Alin 2 for 18
Cardiff & Vale

177 for 7

137 all out Cardiff & Vale

won by

40 runs

Cardiff and Vale won the toss and chose to bat on what proved to be a batsman's paradise. They got off to a solid start keeping the Gwent opening bowlers at bay.  The Gwent captain John Newington-Bridges had other ideas, though, running out both of the Cardiff openers with some great reactive fielding, then following it up by taking two catches. Walker (32) and Sheppard (23) produced a fine partnership to, seemigly, take the game away from Gwent. However, the Gwent bowling partnership of Ryan Price and Ellis Richards, whose combined 5 wickets cost just 41 runs, restricted the final total which, at one stage, seemed destined for 200 plus.

Gwent could never quite get their innings rolling however. Cardiff’s bowlers kept the lines and lengths tight giving them little opportunity to score runs. Harry Wallace, though, showed excellent character to keep his wicket intact, eventually reaching 30 runs before being dismissed.  From here on, the Gwent batsman gave it their all to chase down the total led by Newington-Bridges with. However, it was always going to be a tall order with the side falling well short in the final over.

Best Performances: John Newington-Bridges 4 dismissals in the field,  Ryan Price 3 for 35, Harry Wallace 30, Ellis Richards 2 for 6
