The Championship winning team






Cardiff & Vale

137 all out

138 for 5 Gwent won

by 5 wkts

Gwent won the toss and decided to bowl at Lisvane CC with some showers around Cardiff started well with an opening partnership of 44 between Tegid Phillips (20) and A Arthur.  Arthur went on to make 29 before falling with the score on 74, Cardiff then slumped to 98-5 and 127-8 before being bowled out for 137 with only L. Rees-Zammit (30) showing any resistanceWill Smale (3-27), Tom Protheroe (2-38) and Richard Monnington (2-14) helped bowl Cardiff out in the last over of their allocation.

Gwent’s reply started steadily with the opening partnership putting on 32 before the first wicket fell but this was quickly followed by another as Cardiff bowled extremely well. The scoring slowed down and when the third wicket fell the score was 57-3 off 23 overs and then 82-5 off 29 overs as Tegid Phillips (3-11) and T. Jenkins (2-22) bowled with great control and built lots of pressure. The game almost seemed lost but Travis Morgan and Morgan Bevans combined to forge a match winning partnership of 56 in just 7.4 overs to see Gwent home by 5 wickets.  Morgan finished with 54 not out with some great shots all around the wicket as he scored freely while Bevans rotated the strike and showed a great maturity playing a year up.

This well-deserved victory set the seal on a very successful season which saw the squad repeat their performance in last year's U11 Championship Final and achieve eight victories to four defeats in their twelve matches.

94 all out

211 for 5 Gwent won

by 117 runs

Carmarthen won the toss and asked Gwent to bat first and this looked a good decision as the first wicket fell with the score on just 11.  Will Smale and Travis Morgan then added 37 before Smale fell with the score on 48. Another quick wicket followed but Jack Waters combined with Morgan to take the score to 124 with a partnership of 76 when Waters departed for 21. Morgan continued playing with freedom and some great strokes brought him his maiden 50 for Gwent.  He was now ably supported by Krishnan Hariharan who made 34 not out as Gwent continued to pile up the runs. Morgan fell agonisingly close to his first hundred with the score on 192 as he departed for a fantastic 91 and Gwent completed their innings on 211 for 5.

Carmarthen started their innings and were quickly on the back foot losing a wicket in the fourth over with the score on just 6. Wickets continued to fall at regular intervals and they struggled to 46 for 5 off 15 overs as Gwent’s bowlers dominated.  then took 4 for 7 in 5 overs to underline Gwent’s dominance as Carmarthen were dismissed for 94 in under 31 overs, leaving Gwent winners by 117 runs.

Travis Morgan (17no) and George Bazley (28no off 14 balls) then added an unbeaten partnership of 34 in just 4 overs to see Gwent finish on 205-3. The fielding performance from Gwent was also very good and everyone made important contributions.

Pembroke were soon in trouble slumping to 16-5 after a good opening spell from Ellis James (8-2-19-3) and Richard Monnington (8-3-8-3). They crumbled to 69 all out off 32.1 overs with only James Mansbridge (20) showing any resistance.  It was a very professional performance from Gwent with both the bat and ball and unfortunately Pembroke were completely outplayed.

150 for 7

151 for 7 Berkshire won

 by 3 wickets

After losing the toss and being put in to bat Gwent started well reaching 51 through Will Smale (25) and Travis Morgan (25) before losing their first wicket. Gwent then reached 121 for 5 off 30 overs but struggled to post a decent final score due to some poor  running between the wickets. Waters (20) was the only batter to show some urgency as Gwent closed on 150 for 7.

In reply, Berkshire got off to a good start thanks to some wayward bowling from the Gwent bowlers. However, Gwent stuck at their task and managed to fight back by taking 7 wickets before Berkshire reached their target in the thirty-second over with Ellis James (3 for 24) and Tom Lynbeck (2 for 25) amongst the wickets.  This was a match which Gwent let slip away after being in a strong position on numerous occasions.

Best Performance: Ellis James 3-24


110 all out

150 for 6 Gwent won

by 40 runs

Wiltshire won the toss and put Gwent in to bat on a hot day at Abercarn CC. They got off to a good start, taking the score to 26 before losing their first wicket. Then Scott O’Leary and Tomos Evans combined for an 86-run partnership to take the score to 107 before O’Leary was dismissed for 48. Evans was then dismissed for 30 shortly after and the remaining batters failed to keep up the momentum and Gwent ended their innings on a rather disappointing total after being 107 for 1 twelve overs remaining.

When Wiltshire’s innings started they got off to the worst possible start, losing 2 wickets in the second over bowled by Tom Lynbeck, and they continued to lose wickets at regular intervals to be dismissed 40 runs short of their target with eight overs left. Tom Lynbeck finished with 3 for 20 and was supported well by Will Smale's two wickets while the rest were shared amongst Ellis James, Richard Monnington and Scott O’Leary. The fielding by Gwent was of a very high quality with O’Leary capping off a great performance by taking two catches and a run out while Tomos Evans also effected a run out with a direct throw.

Best Performances: Tom Lynbeck 3-20, Scott O’Leary 48, Tomos Evans 30


100 all out

101 for 5 Gloucestershire won by 5 wickets

Gwent lost the toss on a warm day at Frocester CC and were asked to bat first. A good opening stand of 30 between Will Smale and Tomos Evans meant Wales got off to a decent start but the introduction of Sujan changed the game as he took 3 for 10 off 4.2 overs. The rest of the Gwent batters struggled against the Gloucestershire bowlers who were backed up by some brilliant fielding and they could only manage 100 all out with Jack Waters (18) the only other batman to show any sort of form with the bat.

In reply, Gloucestershire got off to a decent start reaching 28 before a run out by Ellis James broke the partnership. Tom Witcombe then dismissed G. Patterson (26) thanks to a good catch at mid wicket from Lloyd Elias and Will Smale dismissed J. Reeves (21) thanks to some good keeping from Toby Haines. Ton Lynbeck also took a wicket but Sujan (25no) and Z. Ahmed (11no) combined to take Gloucestershire to 101 for 5 in 24.2 overs.


254 for 8

117 all out Devon won

by 137 runs

Devon won the toss against a  Gwent side, depleted by the loss of their five Wales players, and elected to bat first. J Degg 69, I Windley 54 and S. Carpenter 46 took advantage of the Gwent bowlers struggling with the heat and bowling a bad ball an over to post 254-8 off their 40 overs. Only Under 11 bowler Ben Davies bowled consistently well, asking many questions of batters a year up, and finishing with a creditable 3 for 36 off his 8 overs.

When Gwent batted they started well with Tom Protheroe and Jack Waters 31 putting on 41 for the first wicket.  However they soon slumped to 54-4 and 75-7 due to some poor running between the wickets and shot selection. Only Lloyd Elias showed any resistance with 22 to help Gwent reach 117 all out. Jack Waters top-scored with 31.

Best Performances: Ben Davies 3-36, Jack Waters 31


148 for 8

68 for 6 Dorset won

by 80 runs

Dorset won the toss on a very hot day and elected to bat.  However, Gwent did well to restricted them to just 148 for 8 from their 40 overs due to a good bowling and fielding display with Richard Monnington and Tom Protheroe leading the way with the ball taking 2 for 11 and 2 for 35 respectively.

This total was well within Gwent’s grasp and they started well with Will Smale scoring 23 and Gwent reached 31 - 1 off 10 overs. However, after this dismissal, Gwent’s batters went into their shell and thanks to some poor batting and some reasonably straight bowling Gwent only managed another off 45 runs in 30 overs.  Scott O’Leary (20) was the only other batter to make double figures.


162 all out

163 for 6 Gwent won

by 4 wickets

Herefordshire won the toss and elected to bat but lost a wicket in the third over with the score on 5. Then C. Tobey and O. Rogoff combined for a partnership of 42 until the second wicket fell to Ellis James who eventually ended with 3-23. Only T. Hubbard (32) was the mainstay of the Herefordshire innings and they were dismissed in the last over for 162 as Richard Monnington bowled well to finish with 2-15. Gwent’s fielding was good with two run outs in the innings with direct hits.

In reply, Gwent started extremely well with Travis Morgan and Tomos Evans racing to 51 in just 8 overs before the first wicket fell. Evans was then joined by Morgan Bevans and they combined to put on a further 47 runs before Bevans was run out by a direct hit. Evans went on to make a very good 57 until he fell to a great catch at point but Gwent were seen home with 3.2 overs to go by Scott O’Leary (Sudbrook) who finished on 13no.

Best Performances: Tomos Evans 57, Ellis James 3-23
