won by 12 runs

An unbeaten 94 from Mid Glamorgan's C Matthews proved to be the match winning innings with Gwent finding wickets hard to come by.

Gwent were always in the game thanks mainly to Robbie Clarke's 52 and Ryan Avery with 27 but finished up just twelve runs short.

Best Performance: Robbie Clarke 52

West Glamorgan

91 for 5

90 all out West Glamorgan won by 5 wkts

Gwent lost the toss on a damp wicket but made a steady start through Sam Hope Bell (20) and Ryan Avery (27) who put on 47 for the first wicket. Gwent then slipped from a good position at 73-2 to 90 all out with N. Dalavye (4-13) and M. Vigneswaran (2-23) claiming 6 wickets between them. The collapse was even more unbelievable as there were 5 stumpings by Dan Davies and 3 run outs! 

West Glamorgan got off to a good start with Matthew Blake (17) leading the way. However his run out sparked a collapse and some good bowling by Sam Hope Bell (2-14) and Adam Hassan (2-19) had West Glamorgan in all sorts of trouble at 46-5. However Greg Thomas (22no) and Dan Davies (10no) saw them home comfortably in the end. 

Cardiff & Vale

51 for 1

50 all out Cardiff won by

9 wickets

Gwent lost the toss on a damp wicket but made a steady start losing their first wicket with the score on 26. Then with the score on 41 there was a remarkable collapse as Gwent lost 9 wickets for 9 runs to be dismissed for just 50. Only Ryan Avery (11) made double figures for Gwent.

In reply Cardiff & Vale batted sensibly with Charles Griffiths (30 off 45 balls) and Anush Patel (14no off 40 balls) helping them to a nine-wicket win in just 16.5 overs.  David Clarke (1-7) took the solitary wicket for Gwent.

91 for 5

89 all out Berkshire won

 by 5 wkts

Gwent lost the toss and were asked to bat.  After losing two early wickets, Ryan Avery (25) and Robbie Clarke (12) consolidated and took the score to 40 until Robbie was caught at square leg.  Roddy Thomas (21) then came in and helped move the score along but no other Gwent batsman could reach double figures as they were restricted by a good bowling performance and excellent fielding from Berkshire. The innings closed on 89 all out with one ball remaining.

Berkshire went into bat and also lost two early wickets thanks to a very good opening spell from Robbie Clarke (2-13) however some missed run out opportunities and some poor bowling allowed Berkshire to consolidate. After Sam Hope Bell (1-14) made a break through F.Brabham came to the crease and took the game away from Gwent scoring a match winning 27 not out to help Berkshire to a 5 wicket win despite a good fielding display by Gwent. 

(The match was played in a great spirit from both sides culminating in Gwent allowing a Berkshire player to carry on batting after being run out as he was injured in the process.) 

139 for 3

137 for 4 Gloucestershire won by 7 wickets

Gwent lost the toss and were put into bat on a wet wicket.  They started well by taking the score to 23 before losing Sam Hope-Bell. This brought Robbie Clarke to the crease and he batted extremely well scoring a very well, making 73 not out off 79 balls, as Gwent compiled a total of 137 for 4 in their 40 overs. It would have been much higher but for the exceptional ground fielding of the Gloucestershire team which culminated in 2 direct hits to run out batters in the last 10 overs.

Gloucestershire started brightly and scored freely until Robbie Clarke took an outstanding one handed catch to help Jordan Harris-Cupit claim a wicket and leave the score at 23-1. This brought K Penny to the crease and he batted well scoring a match winning 69 not out with support from W Sharp who contributed 22. Gwent stuck at the task with Sam-Hope Bell bowling 8 overs for just 17 runs and Lewys Jones taking 1-28 while Drew Heffernen took 1-16. However Gloucestershire reached their target in the 36th over and were, unfortunately, aided by some indifferent fielding in the last few overs.

Best Performance: Robbie Clarke 73no

108 for 5

107 for 4 Somerset won

 by 5 wickets

Gwent won the toss and chose to bat first on a good wicket. This decision was justified as Robbie Clarke led the way with 58 opening the batting. The other batters batted well against a very good Somerset side that bowled and fielded extremely well and were very disciplined. Ryan Avery scored 17no in the final overs to help lead Gwent to 107-4 off their allocation of 40 overs.  

When Somerset batted, Gwent made early inroads into their top order leaving them 26-3 after 8 overs through Adam Hassan (2-15) and a direct hit from Harrison Rall at mid off to run out one of their batters. A rain delay took the momentum away from Gwent but they stuck at it and managed to get another two wickets, through David Clarke (1-14) and Jordan Harris-Cupit (1-4), before Somerset passed their total in the twenty ninth over.

Best Performance: Robbie Clarke 58

247 for 9

92 all out Dorset won

by 155 runs

Gwent won the toss and elected to bowl first. On a small ground Gwent got off to a great start taking two early wickets. However, the middle order batsmen recovered well with A Sands scoring 48 and J Waterfield scoring 69. Two key partnerships saw Dorset end their innings well reaching a good score of 247. Ellis James gave the notable performance for Gwent; stepping up an age group he took 3 wickets. James Watkins also bowled a good spell taking 2 for 18 in five overs.

Gwent never really got going in their innings with a slow run rate and wickets falling regularly. However a spirited fight from David Clarke (22) and Jordan Harris-Cupit (35) gave some respect to the Gwent score. Taking the pace off the ball was key as M Dave took 5-33 off his 8 overs.

Best Performance:  Jordan Harris-Cupit 35, Ellis James 3-49
