Season's Summary

With just one defeat in nine games, the Squad performed admirably throughout the season.  All the victories were convincing ones by at least four wickets or 45 runs.  The victories over the three strong English counties were particularly impressive.  It was just a shame one poor session saw the team collapse from 109 for 2 to 161 all out against Mid Glamorgan, who ultimately just pipped us to the National Championship title as a result.  Four players hit fifties - Tom Bevington, Jamie Norman, Darnell Taylor-Wood and Joe Voke.  Joe went on to score 96 not out and then become Gwent Young Cricketers youngest ever centurion with 123no.  The bowlers performed very well as a unit with the wickets being shared around.  The leading wicket-takers were Tom North with 9 and Darnell Taylor-Wood with 8.
