Denotes a gold star performance of scoring 50 or more runs or taking four or more wickets.





I43 all out

76 all out Dorset won

by 67 runs

Gwent won the toss and asked Dorset to bat first on a damp, green wicket. They restricted them to 143 all out with all the Gwent bowlers doing well but 30 extras played a big part in the innings. The wickets were shared around with Owen Parsons, Sam Protheroe, Oskar Rice and Matt Stewart taking two apiece and Ross Mohring one. They also fielded well with Hugo Caldicott (2), Matt Stewart, Will Heath, Kai Taylor each taking catches and Oskar Rice a run out.

In reply Gwent had a disastrous start losing their top four batsmen with only 13 on the board.  They never recovered from this and were all out for 76 in 33.3 overs. Only three Gwent batsmen reached double figures.  This was Gwent's first match of the season and there were three new 'caps' in the Gwent side who performed well while the overall fielding was very good.

Cardiff & Vale

 122 all out

163 for 8 Gwent won

 by 41 runs

Gwent won the toss and chose to bat first on a drying/slow wicket and posted a decent total of 163-8 in their 40 overs. Ross Mohring was superb getting 57 not out off only 42 balls and was well supported by Ben Kellaway (22) & Hugo Caldicot (19). Wicket keeper Josh Truckel also batted well near the end getting 15.

In reply, Cardiff lost an early wicket but a partnership of 62 between Harry Treharne (42) & Robbie Brown (25) kept them in the hunt.  However, a devastating spell of bowling by Oscar Watkins, of 5 wickets for 8 runs, ripped the heart out of their batting. Cardiff fell away after this to finish well short of Gwent's total; Sam Protheroe, Matt Stewart and Owen Parsons were the other wicket-takers. The fielding was again exemplary with OwenParsons, Sam Protheroe, Ross Mohring and Oskar Rice each taking a catch and Kellaway and Rice both effecting run outs.

Best Performance: Oscar Watkins 5 for 8, Ross Mohring 57no


187 for 5

183 for 8  

Devon won

by 5 wkts


Gwent won the toss and batted first and after a slow start posted a competitive total from their forty overs. Hugo Caldicott top scored with 45 and was well supported by Harry Hughes with 21. However, the score would have been much higher if Gwent had taken more  singles, especially at the start of the innings, and scored more boundaries.

In reply, Devon got off to a blistering start with boundaries scored to all parts of the ground; Joe Farmer with and Freddie O’Connell scored ninety runs between them at a run-a-ball and ensured Devon won the game with more than ten overs to spare. It was a below-standard bowling and fielding performance by GwentOllie Rayner took two wickets and Hugo Caldicott, Will Heath and  Oscar Watkins but all went for at least five runs an over with Devon scoring many more boundaries (26 in 29 overs) than Gwent (10 in 40). Caldicott, Ross Mohring and Josh Truckel took a catch each.

Best Performance: Hugo Caldicott 45


175 all out

117 all out Gloucester won

by 59 runs

Gwent travelled to Dumbleton in a fixture which was hastily relocated on the morning of the match to Gloucester due to the poor weather in Gwent.  They won the toss, in overcast conditions, and decided to bowl. The bowlers bowled good opening spells and soon had Gloucester 30-3 thanks to two run outs  However, ten year-old Tommy Boorman came to the crease and took the game to the Gwent attack. He scored 50 off 41 balls and by the time his wicket fell the score was 115. Sammy Hamid also contributed 28 vital runs as Gloucestershire were dismissed for 175 with Alex Horton taking 3-21 off 7.5 overs with some fine quick bowling.

In reply, Gwent got off to a terrible start with Will Gilderson reducing Gwent to 16-3 with some good pace bowling aided by some poor shots. He eventually ended up with figures of 5-10, with all the dismissals clean bowled, as he ripped the heart out of the Gwent innings. Unfortunately, only Alex Horton showed any resistance with 33 off 53 balls.

Best Performance: Alex Horton 3-21 and 33

Cardiff & Vale

100 for 7

99 all out Cardiff & Vale

won by 3 wkts

Gwent won the toss, decided to bat first and got off to a great start scoring 39-0 off the first 9 overs. Oscar Watkins and Sam Protheroe were hitting the ball well but both lost their wickets soon after and, thereafter, lost wickets at regular intervals. At 75-5, Josh Truckel some good patience in trying to fight back but he couldn't prevent his side from losing the remaining five wickets for twenty-four runs with thirteen overs of their innings remaining.

Cardiff & Vale started off very quickly hitting boundaries with ease. However, Gwent applied the pressure and Cardiff & Vale were reduced to 75-5; the same score as Gwent earlier.  Cardiff & Vale were taking their time, however, while Gwent missed three realistic chances which proved costly as Cardiff went on to win the game by three wickets with five overs left.

West Glam

164 all out

166 for 9 Gwent won

by 1 wkt

Gwent won the toss and elected to bowl first and West Glamorgan built a good foundation with a second wicket partnership of 79 between Matt O’Brien and Alfie Brown.  However, once both batters fell, wickets  tumbled regularly and West Glamorgan were all out off the last ball of the innings. For Gwent, Owen Parsons was outstanding with figures of 5 for 9 off 5 overs in just his third match and received good support from Darshan Selvakuuran with 3 for 15.

The total looked a challenging one but when Hugo Caldicott and Josh Truckel were at the crease it seemed that Gwent would win with ease as Hugo raced to 23 off 25 balls and Josh got 32 off 44. However, when both batters were dismissed, Gwent stuttered along and lost their ninth wicket with the score on 118 off 33 overs and the West Glamorgan total looked out of reach. What happened next was truly unforgettable as Dan Moseley batting at number nine and Owen Parsons at number eleven put on a scintillating unbeaten last-wicket partnership of 47 off just 6 overs to see Gwent home by the narrowest of margins. Moseley finished on 33 not out while Parsons supported him well making 14 not out to round of a memorable man-of-the match display in a memorable match.

Best Performances: Owen Parsons 5 for 9, Darshan Selvakuuran 3 for 15, Josh Truckel 32, Dan Moseley 33no

Hereford     Match cancelled by the opposition

273 for 3

124 all out Wiltshire won

 by 149 runs

Wiltshire won the toss and batted first on a warm sunny day at South Wilts CC and amassed a very healthy total from their forty overs. The wicket was very good for batting and this was shown by S. Brown (95) and S.MacDougall (82no). Out of the Gwent bowlers, only U10 player Ollie Rayner had any real success, bowling a very good 8 overs for 36 runs and taking two of the three wickets to fall.

In reply, Gwent got off to an attacking start racing to 67 off 12 overs with Harry Hughes and Oscar Watkins batting very positively and punishing anything loose or wide.  A good game seemed on the cards but, with four of the first five wickets to fall being lbw,  of the rest of the batters only Hugo Caldicott made double figures with 16Gwent finished less than halfway to their target with 14 overs still to go.

Best Performances: Harry Hughes 34, Oscar Watkins 21, Ollie Rayner 2-36

North East Wales

158 for 6

248 for 8 Gwent won

by 90 runs

Gwent welcomed North East Wales to Abergavenny CC on a warm day, won the toss and elected to bat.  It proved to be a good decision as Ben Kellaway helped Gwent accumulate 248-8 from their allocated overs with a fantastic 162 off just 100 balls.  He was ably supported by Harry Hughes who scored 26 while Ethan Edwards claimed 3-30 for the opposition.  Kellaway dispatched the North East Wales attack to all parts of the ground as he hit 23 fours and 3 sixes in his maiden century. He dominated partnerships of 103 with Harry Hughes and 68 with Dan Moseley, who made 3.

In reply, the North East Wales batters struggled against a disciplined Gwent attack with only Jac Honey finishing unbeaten on 58 not out showing any real intent. For Gwent, Dan Moseley claimed 2-19 off his 8 overs while there were good spells from debutant Alex Holmes and opening pair Tom Pipe and Kai Taylor. This allowed Gwent to run out comfortable winners.

Best Peformances: Ben Kellaway 162, Harry Hughes 26, Dan Moseley 2-19.

West Glam

126 all out

144 for 4 Gwent won

by 90 runs

On a warm, sunny day at Llanarth CC, Gwent won the toss and elected to bat first. Opener Hugo Caldicott scored a very impressive 45 to set up the innings but Harry Hughes stole the show with a swashbuckling 59 not out in an innings which contained nine boundaries and helped give the Gwent innings some impetus as Gwent finished on a fairly modest, for them, total.

In reply West Glamorgan, looked comfortable before Dan Moseley entered the fray and claimed 2-19 off his eight-over spell.  He was well supported by Oskar Rice who bowled 5 overs for just 2 runs. However, just as the game seemed to be drifting from West Glamorgan they upped the run-rate which left them needing a run a ball for the last 5 overs.  However, some very good Gwent fielding and a good spell of bowling from Alex Holmes, who claimed 2-10 including a fine diving caught and bowled, ensure a win for Gwent.

Best Peformances: Harry Hughes 59no, Hugo Caldicott 45, Alex Holmes 2-10, Dan Moseley 2-19

North East Wales

164 for 4

163 for 7 North East Wales

won by 1 run

Gwent travelled to Brymbo CC to take on North East Wales and a great game unfolded as it swayed to and fro on a warm, sunny day. North East Wales batted first and accumulated a competitive total from their forty overs with Frank Mcdonald Brown stealing the show with a very good 101 not out. For Gwent, Alex Holmes claimed 2-20 while spinner Sam Protheroe claimed 1-23 from his 8-over spell.

In reply, Gwent got off to a good start and were in a great position at 101-3 off 21 overs but the game turned when Hugo Caldicot was run out for 29.  More wickets fell and it was left to Alex Holmes and Darshan Selvakumuran to try and get 58 off the last 8 overs. Unbelievably they managed to get it down to 9 off the last over and Darshan hit a four off the first ball of the over. However, North East Wales held their nerve and Alex Holmes required four off the last ball but he could only manage two leaving the opposition victorious by 1 run.

Best Peformances: Hugo Caldicott 29, Alex Holmes 2-29
