Match Report Summary 2010








Cardiff & Vale

163 for 5






165 for 9



Gwent won

 by 2 runs

After the loss of an early wicket, Ryan Ward and Harriet Coates put on a century partnership to take Gwent to 112 for 1 after 23 overs. The return of S Wall for Cardiff & Vale prompted a mini-collapse as five wickets fell for eleven runs including those of Ryan and Harriet.  Scott Archer and Robbie Clarke then steadied the ship before a further three wickets fell in the last two overs. 

Some particularly accurate bowling by the Gwent openers, Martin Evans and Ellis Pheasant, saw Cardiff & Vale  score only 22 in the first 10 overs.   In fact when they lost their first wicket, at the halfway stage, they had only scored 60 runs.  At the loss of the second wicket Sijodiya joined Wall and the tempo increased and Cardiff & Vale needed 27 runs to win off the last five overs.  Spinner Ben Supple then came on to bowl the spell of the match.  His five overs cost just twenty runs for three wickets.  More importantly he had to bowl the last over with just six runs to win; a tie would have given the game to Cardiff & Vale.  He and the whole team kept their nerve and conceded just five singles to win an exciting match.

Best Performances: Ryan Ward 56, Harriet Coates 45, Scott Archer 25, Ben Supple 3-21

Semi Final


North East Wales

101 for 7




192 for 7



Gwent won

by 91 runs

Gwent batted first with the openers, Ryan Ward and Ben Supple, putting on fifty for the first wicket in twelve overs.  Two wickets then fell but Harriet Coates joined Ryan for another fifty partnership. Ben was sixth out with the score on 149 and Scott Archer ensured the scoring rate was raised with some lusty hitting in the final overs to set an imposing target. 

A fine opening spell of ten overs by Martin Evans and Ryan Ward saw North East Wales score just 24 runs.  This miserliness continued from all the bowlers as wickets also fell steadily.  Ellis Pheasant’s five overs cost just seven runs with one wicket while Robbie Clarke and Nicole Reid also bowled good wicket-taking spells.

Best Performances:  Ben Supple 47, Scott Archer 28no, Ryan Ward 28, Harriet Coates 27, Robbie Clark 3-19, Nicole Reid 2-14

West Glamorgan

120 for 9




147 all out



Gwent won

by 27 runs

Ryan Ward totally dominated the Gwent innings amassing over half the team’s score. It was just a pity the team couldn't bat out the overs and get the three runs for another batting point.

In reply, the Gwent bowlers, led by Martin Evans and Joshua Waters, kept the West Glam batting under control to gain a reasonable comfortable victory although, again, the final bonus point eluded them.

Best Performances: Ryan Ward 79, Joshua Waters 3-13, Martin Evans 3-16




121 for 4




165 for 9


Gwent won on higher run-rate when match abandoned

An opening stand of 46 between Ryan Ward (19) and Ben Supple , plus useful contributions from Elliot Thomas, Sam Hope-Bell and Callum Stewart, guided Gwent to a challenging total of 165-9.

Good tight bowling from Martin Evans and Robert Clarke saw them concede just 20 runs between them in 10 overs. Two great catches from keeper Charlie Smith and a containing spell by Sam helped restrict the Pembroke run-rate so that they were just below the required rate when the rain came and the match had to be abandoned.

Best Performance: Ben Supple 44



Mid Glamorgan

68 all out





69 for 9



Gwent won

by 1 wicket

Gwent won the toss and elected to bowl with Martin Evans and Robert Clarke soon amongst the wickets. A devastating spell by Elliot Thomas then yielded five wickets in just four overs and Mid Glamorgan were bowled out for a low score.

In reply, Ryan Ward had guided Gwent to a seemingly easy win at 51 for 2 when T Cogbill took six wickets, including a hat-trick, for just five runs in four overs, reducing Gwent to 64 for 9! The last wicket pairing of Ellis Ferriman and Charlie Smith kept their heads to see Gwent home by the narrowest of margins.

Best Performance: Elliot Thomas 5 - 9, Ryan Ward 22



223 all out




81 all out


Somerset won by  142 runs

With the score at 165 for 4 after twenty overs it looked as though Somerset would set a target in excess of 300. However, a spirited last twenty overs, led by Ryan Ward with three wickets, saw them dismissed for just over 200.

Gwent’s reply saw only Ryan Ward and Harriet Coates reaching double figures and they were bowled out after twenty-seven overs.

Best Performance: Ryan Ward 3 -18 and 35



161 for 9




101 all out


Gloucester won by 60 runs

Two fantastic spells of bowling from Ellis Pheasant, during which she took six wickets, restricted Gloucester to 161 on a good batting track.

However, the Gwent batting was rather weak in reply and they were soon in trouble at 42-6. Sam Hope-Bell (19) and Ellis (16) put up stubborn resistance but the team was all out with eleven overs still left.

Best Performance: Ellis Pheasant 6-35




131 for 5




128 for 8



Berkshire won by 5 wickets

A much improved batting performance saw an opening stand of 51 between Ryan Ward (22) and Ben Supple (35). Scott Archer (19no) and Josh Waters (18) ensured Gwent batted the full forty overs for the first time this season.

Some tight bowling by Martin Evans, whose four-over spell cost just 5 runs, plus useful contributions by Ben Lander, Ben Supple, Nicole Reid and Josh Waters with a wicket apiece gave Gwent a competitive edge not previously seen in the friendly matches.

Best Performance: Ben Supple 35


175 for 2


42 all out


Devon won

by 175 runs

This was a disappointing match with poor performances with bat and ball reflected in the margin of defeat. Only Sam Hope-Bell, who scored one-third of his side’s runs before he ran out of partners, came out with any real credit. The one positive thing to take from the game, however, was that it spurred the side on to a much improved performance against Pembroke.


181 for 4



86 all out


Wiltshire won by 95 runs

Martin Evans and Callum Stewart were the pick of the ten bowlers used by Gwent in this game but some poor fielding contributed to Wiltshire’s large total.

A twenty-seven run opening partnership between Ben Supple and Ryan Ward gave Gwent a steady start but only Scott Archer was able to carry this on when Gwent again failed to use up all their overs.

Best Performance: Scott Archer 22no



135 all out



107 all out




Herefordshire won by 29 runs

With Herefordshire reeling on 75 for 9, Gwent looked destined for their first friendly win of the season, with Josh Waters the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets. However, this all changed when their last wicket put on another 61 runs.

Gwent’s batting again proved fragile with only Harriet Coates (17) and Sam Hope-Bell (11no) showing any real resistance as again the side couldn’t bat out the forty overs.

Best Performances: Josh Waters 3-16, Ben Lander 2-16, Nicole Reid 2-24


166 for 6



177 for 5


Gwent won

by 11 runs

Gwent reached a good total thanks mainly to a 95-run partnership between Ryan Ward and Ben Lander.  Ryan was just three runs short of a century when the innings closed.

Tight bowling throughout the Cardiff innings kept the opposition under control and they needed 13 off the last over bowled by Ryan Ward.  He finished off a good day by conceding just one run.

Best Performances:  Ryan Ward 97no, Ben Lander 42, Robert Clarke 2-38
