Gwent set off on their run chase positively by scoring 48-0 off 11 overs. However, the introduction of Jasper Presswell proved too strong for the Gwent team as he ripped through the top order leaving them 90-5 off 27 overs. Sam Protheroe and Will Heath got into the twenties and Tom Pipe showed great resilience to bat through the rest of the innings for 26 not out.  However, none of the batters came up with the big score needed for Gwent to challenge the Devon total.

130 all out Dorset won

by 2 wkts

Gwent made another good start scoring 43-1 off 8 overs,  after which both teams came off as heavy rain started to fall. (The game resumed an hour later where both sides agreed to play a 30-over match.)  Gwent lost momentum after the rain break and lost wickets at regular intervals. Anton Lodder and Eoin Shackleton provided a fight back with both scoring twenties to give Gwent a reasonable total off their thirty overs.

Dorset set off on their chase by scoring 29-1 off 4 overs with Toby Berry scoring very quickly punishing any bad ball. However, the introduction of Ben Morris and Sam Protheroe helped Gwent dismiss the top order leaving them in trouble at 53-5. Toby Pattermore, batting at number eight, then batted well to steady the innings. Gwent took late wickets but Pattermore steered his team over the line winning by 2 wickets. Protheroe was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets.

147 for 6 Gwent won

by 4 wkts

Gwent won the toss and elected to bowl on a very windy day at Vale Cricket Club.

After drinks, Gwent took a few quick wickets with Verdash Guru getting run out for 40. Tom Pipe was the pick of the bowlers with three wickets while Protheroe and Daniel Moseley took one each pegged them back restricting Cardiff to an achievable total.

Gwent started off their innings very well with Protheroe and Will Heath scoring a fifty opening partnership. Heath and Hugo  Caldicott (27) batted strongly through the middle overs rotating the strike well and hitting the bad ball to the boundary. After Heath was out for 40 runs Gwent started to lose wickets quickly. With the score on 109-4, Harry Hughes provided the fight back that Gwent needed hitting the ball hard through the offside. Gwent’s middle order got bowled out by Benji Mulchaly who showed great aggression with the ball. However, Josh Truckel joined Hughes (35no) to secure the win with 4.4 overs left of the innings:

161 for 6 Gwent won

by 61 runs

Kellaway then started to push on hitting the ball strongly through midwicket and mid on. He hit the ball with great power, not allowing the West Glam bowlers to get on top and reached his century in the thirty-fifth over.  Tom Pipe (17no) provided good support at the end to Kellaway who finished undefeated on 115 after a superb innings.

West Glamorgan started their chase well scoring 43 off 10 overs. The introduction of spin, however, proved costly for them as Dan Moseley and Eoin Shackleton started to restrict the scoring and take wickets. Osian Webber showed great character and batted with a plan against the spinners. Gwent then brought on Tom Pipe who took a wicket to leave  West Glamorgan on 104-3 off 30 overs. With the run rate creeping up they struggled to score the more than ten-an-over required to win the game. To cap a fine all-round performance, Ben Kellaway came on to take two wickets at the end.  Despite Webber carrying his bat or a very well played 85no, West Glamorgan finished fell well short in the end.

149 all out Wiltshire

won by 97 runs

Wiltshire won the toss and decided to bat first on an overcast day.  They got off to a solid start scoring 80 for 2 off their first 20 overs. Both Issac Ashman and Sam Giddings played very well hitting the ball straight and hard.

However, Wiltshire then piled on the runs, scoring at ten an over.  Ben Morris came back at the end to bowl well and take three wickets but Giddings steered his team to a challenging total with a fine 97no

Gwent set off for their target positively, scoring at five an over off the first ten when they lost their first wicket. Oscar Watkins and Hugo Caldicott then battled hard and started to form a partnership to get Gwent back into the game and, at the halfway stage, Gwent were 113 for 2 and in a very good position to push on. However the introduction of seamer Chris Monelit proved too strong for the Gwent lower order. With figures for 5 for 9 off 5 overs, he tore through the Gwent batsmen who struggled to get forward.  Caldicott top-scored with 48 and Watkins made 31.

Best Performances: Hugo Caldicott 48, Ben Morris 3 for 32, Oscar Watkins 31.
