166 for 6

80 all out Dorset

won by

86 runs

Dorset won the toss and decided to bat first on a very hot day at Canford School. They set off well scoring 87 for 2 off the first 20 overs. However, Gwent had dropped the  Dorset opener, who made 53, three times before he was eventually caught. Ethan Oliver (1 wicket for just 4 runs in 5 overs) bowled tightly during the middle overs to restrict Dorset and he and Ben Day, in particular, bowled well aided by some good fielding during the rest of the innings, helped Gwent keep Dorset to a reasonable total.

Gwent never got going with the bat and showed slow progress. Ollie Rayner was the only Gwent batsmen who looked positive and scored runs at a good strike rate. Gwent lost wickets at regular intervals and fell well short of the target. Rayner scored over half his team's runs with fine battling performance.

Best Performance: Ollie Rayner 44
Cardiff & Vale     Match postponed due to the weather; it proved impossible to rearrange.
West Glamorgan

110 all out

111 for 2 Gwent

won by

8 wickets

West Glamorgan won the toss and decided to bat first on a sunny day at Port Talbot CC.  They made a good start scoring 37 for 1 off the first 10 overs. However, Ben Day and Owen Harris then bowled very well in tandem showing great control and taking regular wickets. Charlie Porter and Ioan Davies showed some fight back but the two Gwent spinners took a combined 7 wickets for 49 runs.  West Glamorgan were all out with five of their allotted overs left.

Gwent were set a modest target and started well scoring at four an over. Joe White (playing a year up) played well for his 32 and Matthew Hall (10*) and Rhodri Williams saw Gwent to a comfortable victory in the 26th over. Williams finished on a fine unbeaten 47.

Best Performances: Ben Day 4 for 27, Rhodri Williams 41no, Owen Harris 3 for 22


359 for 6

158 all out Wiltshire

won by

201 runs

Wiltshire won the toss and decided to bat first on a very hot day at Potterne CC and started exceptionally well scoring at 150 in the first 15 overs.  A small boundary on the one side proved too much for Gwent to handle. Opener T.Spooner and M.Garrart formed a great opening partnership putting Gwent under a lot of pressure. Gwent introduced spin and started to slow the rate down but the Wiltshire middle order kept the pressure on and finished on an impressive total.

Gwent started their innings wellwell and kept up with the rate for the first 10 overs. However, some loose shots and poor application saw Gwent lose wickets at regular intervals. The Gwent batsmen never troubled the Wiltshire score and lost heavily by 201 runs and were bowled our with eight overs left.


106 for 0

105 all out Gloucestershire

won by

10 wkts

Gwent won the toss and decided to bat first at Newport CC. On a fast, dry track they made a good start scoring 31 without loss off the first 6 overs. Gloucestershire then brought the spinners on and Gwent lost regular wickets with nobody really forming a partnership. Owen Harris (29) fought back well but Gwent were bowled out for a disappointingly low score 105 inside 30 overs.

Gloucester then set off for their target very quickly scoring boundaries with ease. Their opening batsmen looked in total control scoring at seven runs an over. Unlike their opposition counterparts, the Gwent spinners found it hard to gain control and Gloucester opening pair eased towards the total in the 17th over.
Cardiff & Vale

93 all out

94 for 5 Gwent

won by

5 wickets

Gwent lost the toss and were asked to field first at Lisvane CC. Both Ollie Rayner and Ethan Oliver opened up with a great spell of bowling removing the Cardiff & Vale top order within the first 10 overs. In trouble at 40 for4, they struggled to form a partnership and the introduction of spin made it even harder. The Gwent spinners then took control and bowled in good areas leaving the opposition all out within 26 overs. Ethan Oliver, Sophia Smale and Ayaan Syed took two wickets apiece

Gwent set off for their target slowly scoring 41 for 3 inside 15 overs. Cardiff & Vale bowled tightly and made the Gwent batsmen work very hard for their runs. However, Matthew Hall and Sophia Smale (16*) then took full control of the game showing great patience and maturity. Matthew hit some great shots timed the ball well in his unbeaten 40. Gwent chased down the target to win the game inside 27 overs.

Best Performance: Matthew Hall 40no

West Glamorgan

219 all out

179 for 8 West Glamorgan

won by

40 runs

West Glamorgan won the toss, elected to bat first at Usk Cricket Club and made a good start scoring 68 for1 off the first 10 overs. Gwent then turned to spin and controlled the middle overs and, with great control, Sophia Smale took 4 for 22 off her 8 overs. Whilst wickets were falling at the other end, however, Luc Salter was always looking to score and he helped West Glamorgan get over the 200-run mark with a fantastic 92.

In response, Gwent started well with Matthew Hall (34) and Ollie Rayner (24) pushing the score along nicely. However, the team were falling behind the the run-rate and pressure started to tell. At 25 overs, Gwent were 94 for 3 needing more than a run a ball to win. Cian Davies produced a good spell of spin bowling which didn't allow them to do this and, despite a good attempt by Owen Harris (30),  Gwent ran out of overs.

Best Performances: Sophia Smale 4 for 22,  Matthew Hall 34, Owen Harris 30
