Match Report Summary 2012

Denotes a gold star performance of scoring 40 or more runs or taking four or more wickets.







132 for 5

131 for 9 Eryri won

by 5 wickets

Gwent were put into bat on a wet wicket after the long journey up to Bethesda.  However, a cautious approach, especially the running between the wickets in the middle of the innings, restricted them to 81 off 30 overs.  Callum Stewart (22) then led the charge ensuring 50 runs were scored in the last 10 overs.

Despite a fine spell of bowling of 2 for 17 in 7.4 overs by Ryan Ward, a superb innings by M Murray (73) eased Eryri to victory although Gwent didn't give up and were left to rue their earlier slow scoring; another 15 runs on their total would have made it a very interesting finish.


 144 for 5

141 for 5 Pembrokeshire

won by 5 wickets

Gwent batted first and, after Scott Archer retired hurt on 21, Ryan Avery and Ryan Ward (28) led Gwent to a total which seemed on the low side.  Avery, playing a year up, finished unbeaten on 35.   

Concerns about the size of the total proved to be well-founded as an aggressive I Cullen drove Pembrokeshire to victory in the twenty-eighth of forty overs with a fine unbeaten 73.  Matthew Williams was the pick of the Gwent bowlers taking 2 for 19 in 7 overs. 

Best Performance: Ryan Avery 35no

Mid Glamorgan 81 all out 82 for 2 Gwent won by

10 wickets

Gwent's spin bowlers made the most of a damp wicket at taking all 10 wickets.  Sam Hope-Bell led the way with 5 and was well-supported by Benito Carnevale who took a further three and Ben Supple with two.  Supple (24) and Ryan Ward then shared (33) a 51-run partnerships to set up a comfortable win.

Best Performances: Sam Hope-Bell 5 for 10 in eight overs, Benito Carnevale 3 for 9 in three overs, Ryan Ward 33.


130 all out

165 for 6 Gwent won by

35 runs

Despite losing a wicket in the very first over Gwent posted a challenging target on a difficult wicket thanks mainly to half-centuries by Robbie Clarke and Scott Archer.

Two wickets each from Ryan Ward, Benito Carnevale and Sam Hope-Bell helped bowl Carmarthenshire out for a fairly comfortable victory.

Best Performances:  Robbie Clarke 55, Scott Archer 53no

241 for 9

216 for 4 Pembrokeshire

 won by 25 runs

Pembrokeshire posted a high total for this age-group.  The bowlers struggled to restrict the run-rate but Ben Supple bowled very well to take four wickets.  He was ably supported by Elliot Thomas with two.

The Gwent batters were determined not to be outdone and Supple completed a fine all-round game with an unbeaten century.  With Ryan Ward getting a half-century, Gwent finished an exciting game just 25 runs short.

Best Performances: Ben Supple 105no & 4-48, Ryan Ward 51


178 for 3

177 for 7 Wiltshire won

by 7 wickets

Ben Supple's fine 68, with support from Elliot Thomas (23) and  Callum Stewart (25no) helped Gwent reach a respectable total.

Despite taking an early wicket Gwent failed to make inroads into the Wiltshire batting and several dropped catches didn't help the cause as Wiltshire won with six overs to spare.  Stewart bowled a fine spell of 6 overs for just 15 runs.

Best Performances: Ben Supple 68

Millfield School

 111 for 4

110 for 7 Millfield School

 won by 6 wkts

Having lost the toss Gwent’s batsmen never came to terms with the damp conditions with only Ryan Avery producing an innings of note.  He produced a very controlled innings to remain unbeaten at the end of the forty overs.

Two well executed run outs put Millfield on the back foot at 7 for 2 but they only lost two more wickets as they  coasted to victory with eleven overs left of their innings.

Ryan Avery 33no


252 for 2

39 all out Gloucestershire

won by 213 runs

Batting first on a beautiful day, Gloucestershire cantered to 73 in the eleventh over when Ben Supple took the first wicket.  Another 88 runs were then scored before Joseph Docherty took the second and last wicket of the innings.  Oliver Forbes hit a fine unbeaten century.

In reply, Gwent lost 4 wickets for just 12 runs and a debutant spin pairing tore the heart out of the Gwent innings leaving them reeling on 28-8.  The innings only lasted 21 overs and nobody reached double figures.

206 for 6

49 all out Dorset won

by 157 runs

Little can be said other than this was a very poor performance by Gwent, especially the batters who succumbed in 29 overs.  Ryan Ward (24) was the only player to come out with any real credit  by scoring half his side's runs.

184 for 7

149 for 8 Devon won

by 35 runs

Gwent asked Devon to bat first on a firm, green wicket with a touch of damp on top and took a couple of early wickets which justified this decision.  But a couple of dropped catches let Devon off the hook and, given that Gwent bowled 36 wides, their final score somewhat flattered them. they got to 184-7 which in the scheme of things was 30 /40 runs more than they should have got. Ben Phillips played well for his 76 not out but was dropped twice.  The wickets were shared amongst the bowlers and four catches taken.

In reply Gwent got off to a great start with Ben Supple (12) & Ryan Ward putting on 49 for the first wicket in 11 overs. This became 57-2 but with the score on 91-2 after 20 overs Gwent were well placed. Unfortunately, Ward got out when looking set for a big score.  This seemed to generate panic in the remaining Gwent batsmen and they lost their last eight wickets for 58 runs despite Benito Carnevale producing a late flourish with 17 not out.  

Best Performance: Ryan Ward 63
