Match Abandoned

To be replayed on June 30

Gwent made competitive total, thanks to Elliot Thomas' maiden fifty for his county, ably supported by Callum Stewart and Ryan Ward.

With rain forecast, Gwent did their best to get in the twenty overs which would have guaranteed a result.  They had reduced Carmarthen to 21 for 5, thanks to a devastating spell by Ben Supple, but the rains game after 15 overs and no more play was possible.

Best Performances: Ben Supple 4-15, Elliot Thomas 51, Callum Stewart 46no, Ryan Ward 32



142 for 7


143 for 3 Gwent won

by 7 wkts

Carmarthenshire batted first and struggled against the pace and bounce of Matt Williams and Robbie Clarke. Following this the accuracy and flight of Ben Supple, Benito Carnevale and Sam Hope-Bell never allowed the innings to take off.  H Jones, B Gimblett and G Williams batted well but never gained the initiative and the innings closed on a very achievable score.

Ryan Avery (20) and Robbie Clarke (24) put on 39 for the first wicket in 6 overs and that brought Ryan Ward to the wicket. Initially he struggled to time the ball but by the time he was out, for a fine 45, he was hitting the ball well. The partnership of Sam Hope-Bell (11no) and Ben Supple (30no) saw the target being reached in 24 overs for a comprehensive victory.

Best Performances:  Ryan Ward 45, Ben Supple 30no

Mid Glamorgan

109 for 1

108 for 7 Mid Glamorgan

 won by 9 wkts

Gwent batted first and apart from Callum Stewart (17), Benito Carnevale (12), Charlie Smith (17no) and Martin Evans with a personal best of 26no nobody made into double figures and the Mid Glam bowlers were well on top. C Barry was the pick of the Mid Glamorgan bowlers with 9 overs 2 for 7.

Mid Glamorgan reached the total for the loss of only one wicket which was taken by Benito Carnevale who was the pick of Gwent’s bowlers with 1 for 24 off 9 overs.

West Glamorgan

135 for 6

136 for 2 Gwent won

by 8 wkts

West Glamorgan batted first and struggled against the tight Gwent bowling, especially from Matt Williams whose seven overs cost just eight runs while Callum Thomas and Elliot Thomas took two wickets apiece. B Christer, T Davies and W Thomas all battled but were never able to get on top of the bowling.  

For Gwent Ben Supple scored a magnificent 75 no and was ably supported by our Under 13 player Ryan Avery with 25Gwent reached the target in 30.4 overs for a comprehensive victory.

Best Performancs: Ben Supple 75no


Cardiff & Vale

211 for 6


199 for 8 Cardiff & Vale

won by 12 runs

Cardiff won the toss and elected to bat on a very good Penarth wicket and got off to a sound start with Keene and Langrish looking in good form. The introduction of Ryan Ward turned the game on its head with a magnificent 5 for 25 ably supported by Ben Supple, Ben Hope Bell and Benito Carnevale. When Patel was joined at the crease by Wall the game turned once more with clever batting taking the total up to 211.

That score was reachable table on such a good batting wicket and Supple, with a fine 63, with the support of Hope Bell (39) and Martin Evans (29no) gave the opponents a real scare. Unfortunately the run outs of two of the main batters,  coupled with two similar dismissals when the run rate was at its height, meant Gwent fell agonisingly just short of the target after a very gallant effort.

Best Performancs: Ben Supple 63, Ryan Ward 5 for 25

297 all out

128 for 9 Dorset won

by 169 runs

We travelled to Dorset with seven squad players unavailable and with four of our Under 13s, so we knew we would be in for a tough match. The star Dorset batsman (G Willows) offered up a chance when he was on 21 which, unfortunately, was not taken and he went on to a century. Also the extras column added another 60 runs! Despite that the boys battled and never let their heads drop and, with Martin Evans and Elliot Thomas doing an admirable job of steering the side in the absence of other senior players, wickets were taken at regular intervals and Dorset were eventually all out for 297 – a very formidable target.  The pick of the bowlers were the two Under 13s Robbie and David Clarke with 5 wickets between them

In reply Gwent lost a wicket very early on but kept battling away. Thanks to the efforts of Robbie Clarke (26) and Sam Clarke (25), Sam Harrison and the inspired Martin Evans (2 personal best batting displays in 2 weeks) Gwent finished a long way short but with pride intact and respect gained from a very good Dorset team for their refusal to give in.

Best Performances: David Clarke 3 for 32, Martin Evans 32

176 for 8

86 for 8 Wiltshire won

by 90 runs

Gwent started brilliantly and at one stage had Wiltshire reeling at 39 for 5! Then top order batsmen Elliott (39), Samuel (28) and Chahal (39) took control and took them to a a reasonable but achievable score. Matt Williams, Dave Clarke, Robbie Clarke, Benito Carnevale and Ryan Ward all bowled well keeping extras down to a minimum.  Dave took a creditable 3 for 31 off his nine overs with Robbie taking 2 for 8 off five.

Unfortunately that was as good as a it got. Only Robbie Clarke (20), Sam Harrison (15) and keeper Charlie Smith (15) came away with any credit with the bat as Gwent were found badly wanting on a slightly damp track. Wiltshire were worthy winners by 90 runs

Best Performance: David Clarke 3 for 31


277 for 2

103 all out Devon won

by 174 runs

This match can be best summed up as a 'bad day at the office'. Under 13 player Ryan Avery kept wicket well, Elliot Thomas was excellent in the field, and Matthew Williams bowled well but there was nothing else to get excited about after an overall lacklustre fielding  – 6 dropped catches let Devon’s big hitters off the hook - and bowling performanceRyan Avery (29) and Matthew Williams (19no) were the only batters to come out of the game with any real credit.


180 for 5

176 for 7 Herefordshire

 won by 5 wkts

Gwent lost an early wicket but then had an excellent partnership between Ryan Ward and Ben Supple which took the score on to 75.  Supple's departed triggered a middle order collapse but the situation was recovered by Ryan Ward with a fine 51 and a sparkling knock of 41 not out from Callum Stewart, ably supported by Carnevale and Matt Williams.

The innings ended on 176 for 7 in 40 overs which was competitive but probably 30+ runs short as was proved by Herefordshire reaching their target with 5 wickets and 5 overs to spare.  Matt Williams was once more accurate in his two-wicket opening spell and was ably supported by the “spin twins” Carnevale and Supple who took a wicket apiece.

Best Performances: Ryan Ward 51, Callum Stewart 41no, Ben Supple 33


95 all out

135 all out Gwent won

by 40 runs

Gwent won the toss and decided to bat on a very good wicket. They were very soon 7 for 3 and  it was left to Robbie Clarke, with an aggressive 23, Alex Palmer (18), Ross Brown (16) and Sam Harrison (33) (all with personal bests) to show the top order batters the way to do it. In particular Sam Harrison batted very cleverly and guided Gwent to a below-par 135 but a chance for something to bowl at.

Pembrokeshire started steadily and were going along nicely at 36 for 2, with Ben Supple having struck twice. The turning points that led to Pembrokeshire losing 5 wickets for 5 runs were the outstanding fielding and bowling of the team.   In particular, Martin Evans (2 direct throw run outs) and the accuracy of the excellent Sam Hope-Bell 5 for 22, supported well by Ben Supple 2 for 18 and Benito Carnevale 1 for 9.

Best Performances: Sam Hope-Bell 5-22, Sam Harrison 33
