Welsh National Championships

The Welsh Championships in the Cardiff Area w/c 28th July were severely affected by the weather with two of the four round of matches rained off.  It was agreed Gwent would play in a rearranged final to be held in September but this never took place because of the weather.

Match Report Summary 2008









112 all out


114 - 1


Gwent win by 9 wickets

Gwent proved to be far to strong for a spirited Carmarthenshire side in the first championship match. Batting first they only managed to get 112 all out on a very good wicket.  This was a good all-round bowling and fielding display which included two run-outs.

Gwent knocked off the runs for the loss of only 1 wicket in 22 overs thanks to a century second-wicket partnership between Cameron Herring and Jack Norman.

Best Performances: Cameron Herring 49no,  Jack Norman 39no, Jake Kings 2-11, Callum Herring 2-13

West Glamorgan

52 all out



Gwent win by 9 wickets In a match reduced to 20 overs a side, because of the weather, Gwent proved to be the better side in all departments. West Glamorgan lost the toss and were asked to bat first in the poor conditions and it proved to be a real struggle as the Gwent bowling and fielding took control immediately. They lost danger man Cameron Bamford for only 2 runs brilliantly stumped by Tom Baker and collapsed from 24-1 to 52 all out in 17.3 overs. Five batsmen were run out and there were a couple of outstanding catches by captain Henry Lewis who captained the side brilliantly.

The Gwent openers, Callum Herring and Cameron Herring, reached  the target comfortably in only 8.3 overs.

Best Performances: Callum Herring 36no, Jake Kings 2-8, Jack Norman 2-14

Cardiff & Vale






     Gwent    won by 38 runs

Gwent won the toss and batted first and were soon in trouble losing a wicket in the first over, but a series of good partnerships put them in a strong position closing on 219 – 5 after 45 overs. Alex Kryjom was the pick of the batsmen and was well supported by Callum Herring and Jack Norman and Cameron Herring who was unlucky to be run out when going well. Cardiff got off to a brisk start scoring quite freely early on but started to lose wickets at crucial stages as the Gwent bowlers got on top. Cardiff eventually finished on 181 – 8, without really threatening to reach the required target. Matthew Malson was the pick of the bowlers.

Best Performances: Alex Kryjom 45 not out, Callum Herring 43, Jack Norman 35, Matthew Malson 3-9.



66 for 2


128    all out


Match abandoned as a Draw

Gwent were asked to bat first in damp conditions and were soon in trouble at 28 – 4 due, mainly, to poor shot selection. A good partnership between Tom Baker and Simon Veall steadied the ship but this was followed by a collapse to 88 – 9.  Will Noblet and Caerwyn Clement showed the batters how it was done by putting on 40 for the last wicket and, as important, batting out the overs.  Shropshire were well placed at 66 – 2 when the forecasted rain came and the match was abandoned.

Best Performances: Tom Baker 45, William Noblet 23no


Mid Glamorgan

100 all out






Match abandoned as a Draw 

Gwent won the toss and elected to bowl first in the damp, overcast conditions and Mid Glamorgan never got to grips with any of the Gwent bowlers and were all out for 100 runs in 39.5 overs. The real highlight of the innings was the Gwent fielding which was very impressive with 8 very good catches being taken. Gwent were in a strong position at 32 – 2 when a horrendous thunderstorm flooded the Ebbw Vale ground.

Best Performances: All the bowlers did well, but Simon Veall with 9 overs 4 maidens 2 wickets for 8 runs and Callum Herring with 5 overs 3 wickets for 8 runs were the pick.  Callum Herring was also 20 not out at the close.





151 all out









    Gwent     won by 74 runs

Gwent were put into bat on a wicket which was helpful to the seam bowlers early on. Cameron Herring & Jack Norman grafted for a partnership of 46 in 17 overs which gave Gwent a fairly good platform. With the wicket settling down the middle order took the Devon bowling on in great style scoring 125 runs in the last 15 overs. Henry Lewis & Jake Kings put on 77 for the 5th wicket and Tom Baker played a typical belligerent cameo at the end containing 3 big sixes. Devon got off to a good start with 51 on the board for 1 wicket off only 11 overs but the Gwent spin bowlers took over and started to restrict the Devon batsmen and with excellent fielding the run rate began to rise. With this pressure building the Devon batters got out with some very poor expansive shots. Off- spinner Mitchell Harris was the pick of the bowlers with 5 wickets  and Tom Baker was superb behind the wicket with 4 stumpings, two down the leg-side off the seamers, and there was s first-class fielding display. A great win over the ECB South West Regional Winners.

Best Performances: Mitchell Harris 5 for 30, Henry Lewis 54, Jake Kings 51, Tom Baker (34)




162 - 9



107    all out



   Dorset  won by 55 runs

Panteg did wonders to ensure this game was played despite the damp conditions.  Dorset batted first and the game got off to the worse possible start with Jack Norman having to go to hospital for treatment after an attempted caught and bowled split his hand.  The visitors reached a modest total of 162 in their 45 overs with G.Russell (64) & R. Triniman (45) getting the bulk of the runs. Simon Veall bowled well taking 4 wickets but the fielding was not up to its usual high standard. Gwent in reply got off to a very slow and poor start and never really threatened the target. Only Henry Lewis got to grips with the Dorset bowlers. Perhaps the players were suffering a reaction from their heroics against Devon the previous day.

Best Performances: Simon Veall 4-33, Henry Lewis 24




168 - 2



165    all out



Berkshire won by 8 wickets

Gwent batted first on a good wicket and fast outfield but lost 2 wickets early on. Under 13 player, Callum Reid and Jake Kings steadied the ship with a partnership of 84 in 12 overs but then lost their last 6 wickets for just 25 runs. Callum hit a fine half century and Callum Herring also batted well for his 33 but nobody else threatened double figures.

Berkshire lost a wicket after only 7 balls but then S. Parsons (110 n.o.) & D. Lincoln shared a partnership of 114 in 28 overs to take the game away from Gwent.

Best Performances: Callum Reid 50, Jake Kings 38, Callum Herring 33
