Match Report Summary 2010








West Glamorgan

234 for 9



162 all out


West Glamorgan

won by 72 runs

Gwent won the toss and asked West Glamorgan to bat first but this really backfired as the West Glam openers put on 121 for the first wicket in 22 overs. Unfortunately, this was not a good team bowling and field display and it allowed the opposition to reach a very competitive 234 in 45 overs.  The one exception was Josh Tregaskes who took 2-29 in his eight overs.

Gwent never really looked like reaching this target with some very slow batting at the start which put the lower order under such pressure they were all out for 162 with nearly four overs left.  Matthew Jones was the only batsman to emerge with any real credit although Matthew Nash did provide him with some support with 22.

Best Performance: Matthew Jones 43

Play-off Match with Runners-up in the North Division


North East Wales

111 all out





112 for 2



Gwent won

by 8 wickets

Gwent asked North East Wales to bat first and they were soon in trouble against the pace of Ryan Jenkins who removed the first 3 batsmen for 25 in six overs. The introduction of spin from both ends brought even more trouble for their batsmen. Cameron Tippings and Corey Wallace took the remaining 7 wickets leaving the opposition all out for 111 with seven overs still left.

Gwent lost two early wickets in reply but an unbroken third wicket partnership of 91 in sixteen overs by Matthew Jones and Iwan Gane saw them home very comfortably in twenty-six overs.

Best Performances:  Cameron Tippings 4-11, Corey Wallace 3-14, Ryan Jenkins 3-25, Matthew Jones 55no, Iwan Gane 25no

Group Matches



Cardiff & Vale

237 for 5




96 all out




Cardiff & Vale won by 141 runs

Gwent won the toss and elected to field first but this soon backfired as the Gwent seamers were despatched to all parts by the Cardiff batsmen. Unfortunately, it was a poor bowling and fielding display. with several dropped catches and missed run outs. The positives for Gwent were the efforts of debutant left arm spinner Josh Tregaskes, who bowled 9 accurate overs for his 1 for 25, and off-spinner Stuart Roberts who took 3 wickets.

In reply, the batters did not perform any better and succumbed rather tamely.  It is to be hoped that this will be a wake-up call to a talented squad and that they can win their remaining matches and, who knows, get their own back in the Final.

Best Performance: Stuart Roberts 3-34



West Glamorgan

277 for 4




280 for 9



Gwent won

by 1 wicket

West Glam won the toss and elected to bat on a very good looking wicket and so it proved as all the batsmen made hay with superb cricket shots all round the ground. Openers Francis and Donald put on 113 for the first wicket off only 18 overs and 300 looked on the cards but the Gwent bowlers stuck to the task and kept it down to 277-4.

Gwent were indebted to Corey Wallace and Matthew Jones (25) for a superb start to their innings and were going along very well until four run outs in the middle order put them on the back foot. However, Wallace and Stuart Roberts, both played fine innings to keep the target within reach. Number 10, Josh Tregaskes, (25no), in only his second match at this level, played the innings of his life to win the game for Gwent with one over to spare.

Best Performances: Corey Wallace  60, Stuart Roberts 54




182 all out




194 for 5



Gwent won

by 12 runs

Gwent won the toss and elected to bat first but were somewhat in disarray at 54-4 after 17 overs.  However, a fifth wicket partnership of 136 by Iwan Gane and skipper Louis Tovey rescued the situation and Gwent finished on a respectable 194-5 off 45 overs.

Pembroke got off to a very good start with their openers getting 63-0 off the first 15 overs.   With the introduction of spin from both ends the required run rate began to climb and wickets began to fall at crucial times in their innings.  Louis Tovey completed a man-of-the match performance with a three-wicket haul while the other wickets were spread around the bowlers Pembroke were all out in the final over of the match still 12 runs adrift.

Best Performances: Louis Tovey 58no & 3-39, Iwan Gane 54.

Devon won by

61 runs

Devon won the toss and elected to bat first but were soon in disarray with a spirited bowling and fielding display by Gwent. Only captain Wyatt-Haines with 52 troubling the bowlers. It all looked good for Gwent at 126-8 until Thompson and Williams blasted 88 runs off the last 7 overs to take Devon to an unlikely 209-8 off their 45 overs. The wickets were shared amongst five bowlers.

Gwent got their reply off to a very good start with Matthew Jones (38) and Ryan Cobb (18) putting on 43 for the first wicket and the platform was set for the challenge.  However, only David Cook with 15 got into double figures and the innings fell away to a disappointing 148 all out after 40 overs. Nevertheless an improved performance by Gwent, especially in the bowling and fielding, which delighted both Gwent coaches.

Best Performances: Matthew Jones 38



167 all out




159 for 8



Herefordshire won by 8 runs

Herefordshire won the toss and elected to bat first on a good looking Ebbw Vale wicket but made no real impression against the Gwent bowlers, only J. Gooch (59) batted with any authority. For Gwent seamer Ethan Cayford and spinner Cameron Tippings bowled very well in the middle overs and Louis Tovey and Daniel King mopped up the tail with 15 balls left.

Gwent got off to a very slow start in their reply and were 29-1 off 16 overs at one stage but Stuart Roberts (28) and Iwan Gane staged a good fight back only to lose their wickets at critical times. Hamish Matthews batted very solidly at the top of the order for 30 but the tail ran out of overs and Gwent fell 8 runs short at the end.

Best Performances: Iwan Gane 31 & 2 catches, Ethan Cayford 3 -19, Louis Tovey 3 -14, Hamish Matthews 30



111 for 4




110 all out


Gloucester won by 6 wickets

Gwent lost the toss and effectively this had a major bearing on the outcome of the match. The wicket was damp with variable bounce and all the batsmen struggled except Matthew Jones. Even he fell victim to the demons of the wicket and Gwent were bowled out for only 110 in 38 overs.

After the break the wicket settled down and the Gloucester batsmen played very solidly to win by 6 wickets after losing a wicket to the very first ball.  The wickets were spread around the bowlers with Corey Wallace, Matthew Nash, Josh Tregaskes and Ryan Jenkins taking one apiece.

Best Performance: Matthew Jones 45




221 for 8







Dorset won

by 2 runs

Dorset won the toss and batted first on a good track and posted a competitive total of 221-8 in their 45 overs.  Cameron Tippings again bowled his leg spin with great guile and control taking 2-26 off 9 overs. Ethan Catyford also took two wickets and Ryan Jenkins and Matthew Nash one apiece.

In reply Gwent got off to the worst possible start by losing an early wicket but recovered superbly through Stuart Roberts (71) and Hamish Matthews (60) putting on 148 for the second wicket in good time. Dorset fought back, however, but, despite the efforts of Louis Tovey with 24 n.o., Ryan Cobb (16) and Marc Lezar (12 no), Gwent fell agonisingly 2 runs short.

Best Performances: Stuart Roberts 71, Hamish Matthews 60
