Match Report Summary 2014

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





Monmouth School

79 for 8

217 for 3  

Gwent won

by 138 runs


After an openlng partnership of 47 between Tom Evans (17) and Tom Lynbeck(17), Gwent accelerated throughout the innings. Will Smale (21), and Travis Morgan and Scott O'Leary, who both retired on reaching fifty, ensured they reached a formidable total of 217 in 30 overs.

Gwent's four-pronged pace attack of Tomas Whitcombe, Lloyd Saunders, Ellis James, and Richard Monnington made scoring hard work for Monmouth and, well supported by Tom Protheroe and Lloyd Elias, restricted the home side to only 79 runs off their allotted 30 overs.  Tom Protheroe was the pick of the bowlers with 3 wickets for 11 runs in his 5 overs.

West Glamorgan

120 for 7

135 for 7


Gwent won

by 15 runs


A very good bowling performance from  West Glamorgan restricted Gwent to a modest total.  Travis Morgan made 45 with George Bazley (27), Krishnan Hariharan ((20) and Aadil Hassan (17) providing support.  However, Gwent's reluctance to take singles also had an effect.

In reply, West Glamorgan  suffered the same reluctance especially against the spin bowlers Lynbeck and Oleary who bowled a combined total of 16 overs for 25 runs taking 3 wkts each in the process.  Consequently, they finished 15 runs short at the end of their forty overs.

Best Performance: Travis Morgan 45

156 for 8

159 for 5 Gwent won

by 5 wkts

Gwent's opening bowlers, Richard Monnington and Tomas Witcombe bowled the opening ten overs for only 22 runs. They were well supported by Lloyd Saunders and Lloyd Elias, who conceded just 14 runs between them, and Tom Lynbeck whose three wickets helped restrict Herefordshire, on a good wicket, to only 156 runs. Gwent took some fine catches, with Tom Evans taking three, although some of the ground fielding was not of the standard we have come to expect.

After losing an early wicket, Tom Evans, with a good 56, and Travis Morgan (21) put on a 55-run partnership and, with Scott O'Leary getting a quickfire 22, Gwent were always in control.  However, a combination of some good bowling and some rash shots, particulary from players who had got themselves,  made things a little uncertain for a while. Despite this Lynbeck (18no) and Elias (19no) guided Gwent to a comfortable win.

Best Performance: Tom Evans 56 & 3 catches, Tom Lynbeck 3-18


17 for 1

266 for 5 Match abandoned as a draw

Having won the toss Gwent's batsman took advantage of some wayward bowling on a good batting suface. Openers W.Smale (24) and Tom Evans put on 82 for the first wicket and when Travis Morgan joined Evans for a partnership of 114  resulting in a massive total of 266 runs. Two fine innings saw Tom finish on 85 and Travis on 79.

Unfortunately with only 4 overs of the Wiltshire innings bowled the game had to be abandoned due to rain

 Tom Evans 85, Travis Morgan 79

Cardiff & Vale

151 for 8

148 all out Cardiff & Vale

won by 2 wkts

Good bowling by Cardiff & Vale allied to some indifferent batting by Gwent resulted in a below par score of with only Travis Morgan making a significant contribution with the bat.

Although Gwent took wickets at regular intervals the fielding was not up to the required standard.  The fact that the opposition reached the target with only two wickets left shows this was a game that Gwent could well have won if they had held on to their catches.  Their batters were no more effective than Gwent's apart from J Meggitt who made the most telling contribution of 40 runs.

Best Performances:  Travis Morgan 37


162 for 8

118 all out Berkshire won

by 54 runs

Gwent's opening bowlers Richard Monnington and Ellis James bowled the first 20 overs for only 23 runs and with Tom Lynbeck and Harry Bachelor picking up 2 wickets each after 45 overs Gwent had restricted Berks to only 162 runs.

Gwent's reply started well with an opening stand of 48 between Will Smale (22) and Tom Lynbeck but, after they departed, only Ellis James (24) managed to get into double figures.  They were finally  bowled out in the forty-third over. 

Best Performances: Richard Monnington 3-18, Tom Lynbeck 30

West Glamorgan

179 for 8

183 for 3 Gwent won

by 7 wkts

Gwent's seam attack couldn't make the breakthrough against the opening partnership of Lee (42) and Milford (42) but the introduction of spinners Scott O'Leary and Tom Lynbeck kept the West Glamorgan total down to an achievable 179.  Lynbeck took one wicket for just six runs in eight overs and, while O'Leary wasn't so economic, he took four wickets in his spell.

In reply, Gwent started well with Tom Evans (28) and Will Smale putting on 40 in the first seven overs. O'Leary then came to the crease and scored a quickfire 59no and along with Smale, who made a fine 76, ensured the target was achieved in thirty-two overs.

Best Performances: Will Smale 76, Scott O'Leary 59no & 4-40


169 all out

155 for 6 Devon won

by 14 runs

Despite playing five under 12s due to international commitments, Gwent did exceptionally well to take a strong Devon side right to the wire. Gwent bowled very well on a batsman friendly wicket led by Tom Protheroe, who took 4 for 40, supported by good spells from Harry Bachelor and Ellis James.  They restricted Devon to an achievable total.

In reply, Gwent lost wickets at regular intervals but never-the-less kept a healthy scoring rate thanks to James Archer and Nathan Berry. Richard Monnington added a quick 13 but, in the end, the Devon total proved to be just out of reach.

Best Performances: Tom Protheroe 4-40, Nathan Berry 44no, James Archer 44
