54 all out

55 for 5 Gwent won

by 5 wkts

Gwent won the toss and asked Eryri to bat first.  They bowled and fielded extremely well as Eryri were shot out for just 54.  Max Herring took 3 wickets for 5 runs in just 13 balls to mop up the tail and Eryri were the victims of 3 run outs. Only K. Hoe-Pike (16) & Sion Buchanan(10) got into double figures.

In reply, Gwent also started poorly losing both openers with only 5 runs on the board. A nervy batting performance saw Gwent lose 5 wickets, two to run outs, but James Rhydderch-Roberts with 20 off as many balls and Alex Horton with 16 not out helped to see them home in the seventeenth over to take the National Under 11 title. 

94 all out

155 for 5 Gwent won

by 61 runs

Gwent were asked to bat first in hot conditions and posted a competitive score off their allotted overs. Skipper  led from the front with 50 not out, James Rhydderch-Roberts made 30, Morgan Bevans 24 and Alex Horton 19 not out off 26 balls to finish things off. 

In reply, Pembrokeshire never got to grips with the superior bowling and fielding of Gwent and were dismissed for 94 in 37.2 overs. Will Hughes got 20, George James 17 & G. Scourfield 13 as off spinner Max Herring took four wickets in his eight overs and Harry Bachelor 2 wickets for only 3 runs in 6 overs, leaving Gwent winners by 61 runs.  They were supported by some good fielding with Tom Franklin taking a catch and a run out.

Best Performances: James Archer 50no,  Max Herring 4-17, James Rhydderch-Roberts 30


99 for 8

57 for 5 Match


After a delayed start due to rain, Gwent asked Pembroke to bat first and they rather struggled to 99-8 in their 40 overs. Only George James with 31 troubled Gwent as the bowling & fielding was very good. James Archer took three wickets and three catches and Max Herring 2 for14 off 8 overs

In reply Gwent, stuttered and stalled to 57-5 in 15 overs between the showers but it was the weather which had the last word as the heavy downpours took their toll on the square match was abandoned and will be replayed in Pembrokeshire.

Best Performances:  James Archer 3-10 & 3 catches


North East Wales

70 all out

71 for 7 Gwent won

by 3 wkts

Gwent won the toss and asked NE Wales to bat and the decision was vindicated as Gwent took wickets at regular intervals to get North East Wales all out for just 70.  Left-arm spinner Ben Davies was the pick of the bowlers taking 2-13 off 8 overs, opening the bowling. Morgan Bevans also took 2 wickets.

Gwent were 40 for 3 but suffered a mini collapse but a 19-run partnership for the seventh wicket by Alex Horton (17) & Ben Davies (6 no) saw them home by 3 wickets with plenty of overs to spare.


136 for 5

137 for 7 Gwent won

by 3 wkts

Gwent bowled first in freezing cold conditions but stuck to their task really well and restricted Eryri to 136-5 in their 40 overs with Matthew Jones getting a well made 83. He was dropped 5 times but in the cold conditions you could not really put anyone at fault. Again, Ben Davies had a fine opening the bowling with his left-arm spinners taking 1 wicket for just 9 runs in 8 overs. He was well backed up by James Archer with 2-8 off 5 overs.

When Gwent batted it was very damp and they lost early wickets but a 42-run partnership by Nathan Berry (18) and Raphael Kefalas (17) steadied the ship. After a 15-minute rain break Gwent returned to the fray and lost another 2 quick wickets and at 86-7 were in deep trouble. But a 51 run unbeaten partnership by Ben Davies (28 no) & James Rhydderch-Roberts (27 no) saw Gwent home with three balls to spare.


129 for 8

130 for 4 Gwent won

by 6 wkts

Gwent won the toss and asked Eryri to bat first and this decision was vindicated as both openers were out with only 3 on the board.  However, steady batting throughout enabled Eryri to get 129 – 8 off their allotted 40 overs.  Left-arm spinner Ben Davies again bowled supremely well taking 3 wickets for 9 runs in 8 overs. 

In reply Gwent, lost a wicket first ball but a 96-run partnership ensued for the second wicket which enabled them to cruise to victory on 130-4 off only 23 overs.  Morgan Bevans, hitting a fine unbeaten 53 no and James Archer with 35 were the main Gwent batsmen to inflicted the damage on their opponents.

Best Performances:  Morgan Bevans 53no, Ben Davies 3 for 9, James Archer 35

214 for 5

76 all out Berkshire won

by 138 runs

Berkshire were asked to bat first and all their top order batsmen contributed to a total of 214-5 in 40overs; M. Thomas got 47 no and Cameron Ellis got 46. Hussain Shahid, on debut, bowled extremely well taking 3 wickets for 28 in his 8 overs. Nathan Berry took two catches, behind the stumps, and Morgan Bevans one.

In reply Gwent got off to a flyer and had 30 runs on the board after only 4 overs but they had also lost two wickets in the process. Everything went down hill after this with the next 8 wickets falling for 46 runs and we were all out in the 23rd over for 76. Only James Archer showed any sort of decent form with 21 and Nathan Berry and Ben Davies both got 12.

Best Performances:  Hussain Shahid 3-28


102 for 5

101 for 9 Devon won

by 5 wickets

On a sunny day Gwent won the toss at Blundells School and decided to bat in good conditions.  However, some very good bowling by Devon restricted Gwent to just 101-9 off their allocated overs with only 3 batters getting double figures (Harry Bachelor 13, Tom Franklin 13 and Ben Davies 12).

When Devon batted they got off to a flier and punished some wayward bowling, racing to 40-0 off just 4 overs. Gwent fought back, though, and some better bowling and fielding allowed them to take 5 wickets before Devon passed their target in the 23rd over. James Archer stood out with some excellent bowling (5-0-11-2) and taking a great catch at cover. Joe Truckel also took a very good catch as Gwent’s fielding improved through the innings.


67 all out

82 all out Gwent won

by 15 runs

Gwent batted first, lost a wicket first ball and never really recovered enough to set a sizeable total.  At 27-4 off 20 overs it looked like curtains but the lower order stuck it out and after 40 overs had reached 82-9.  Nathan Berry (15) and Sam Burgess (12) were the only batters to get into double figures.  I

In contrast Gloucestershire got off to a very good start and were 38-2 after 12 overs but this is when the Gwent fight back started. Left-arm spinner Ben Davies took 2-9 off 8 overs, Joe Hill 3-6 off 5 and James Archer 2-2 off 5. Aided by some good catching and 2 run outs Gloucestershire were dismissed for 67 thus losing by 16 runs.  Nathan Berry, Ben Davies, Joe Hill and James Rhydderch-Roberts each took catches and/or made a run out.

Best Performances: Joe Hill 3-6 plus a run out, Ben Davies 2-9 plus a catch.


75 for 6

74 all out Wiltshire won

by 4 wickets

This was a poor batting display by Gwent after winning the toss and deciding to bat first.  At one stage they were 14 for 6 with the top order blown away by Bennet-Thomas who took 4 wickets for just 6 runs. Harry Bachelor (16 no) & Sam Burgess (12) then dug in and got Gwent up to 74.

In reply, Wiltshire also started badly with left-arm spinner Ben Davies tearing in to the Wiltshire batsmen and finished his 8 overs with 5 wickets for 24 runs. Unfortunately for Gwent they just did not have enough runs on the board and Edward Wade steered Wilts home with 27no.

Best Performance: Ben Davies 5 for 24


47 all out

50 for 1 Gwent won

by 9 wickets

On a glorious day at Monmouth Gwent played Herefordshire and were asked to field first after losing the toss. The warm weather didn’t seem to faze the Gwent bowlers as they produced their best all round display this season by bowling Herefordshire out for just 47 in 20 overs. The two opening bowlers started the collapse with Hussain Shahid ending 2 for 8 and Lewis Watkins 1 for 10 as Herefordshire struggled to 19-3 off 10 overs. The spinners then took over and claimed the remaining 7 wickets with off spinner Morgan Bevans (Abergavenny) taking a remarkable 5 wickets in just 2 overs with Ben Davies taking 2 wickets for just 3 runs off 5 his overs. A special mention must go to the all round fielding performance of the side with James Archer taking 4 catches on the drive and Tom Franklin taking a slip catch and James Rhydderch-Roberts a stumping.

In reply, Gwent raced to their target in just 10 overs for the loss of one wicket. James Archer (26no) and Sam Burgess (16no) combined for an unbeaten partnership of 30 to seal a comprehensive victory.

Best Performances: Morgan Bevans 5-7, James Archer 4 catches & 26no


109 for 5

108 all out Dorset won

by 5 wickets

Gwent batted first on what looked a good bating surface but it turned out there were a few demons to overcome caused by the variable bounce. They lost three early wickets but a stand of 22 runs in the middle overs by James Rhydderch-Roberts (43) and Alex Horton (10) helped them to reach a low total of 108 all out in 26 overs. James really played very well posting his highest total for the county.

In reply, Dorset did not have it all their own way as Gwent fought tooth and nail to the very end.  However, a few dropped catches and missed run out attempts allowed Tom Saunders (39) & J. Gordon (15) to steer Dorset to victory off 30.2 overs.

Best Performances: James Rhydderch-Roberts 43


Match cancelled due to the weather
