6 wkts

Gwent were asked to bat first and started reasonably well against the opening pace attack and Will Heath and Hugo Caldicott, while not at their very best, built a stand of 35. After the departure of Heath (9), Harry Hughes joined Caldicott at the wicket and the score moved to 55 before Caldicott departed for 24. Oscar Watkins (13) and Hughes hit the ball hard until Hughes departed for a well struck 38 with the score on 94 in the 28th over.  However, the remaining seven wickets made just 46 runs. An unbeaten last-wicket stand between Alex Holmes (16no ) and Ben Morris (7no) managed to get Gwent to a fairly respectable score.

Ben Morris started bowling with great pace and took an early scalp and was ably supported by Rice who bowled an admirable line and length conceding just 10 runs in 5 overs. The only other bowler to show any real control was Dan Moseley who bowled well for his three wickets. The rest of the bowling was somewhat wayward and this, coupled with a lacklustre fielding performance, saw Gloucestershire coast to victory in the 28th over.

Best Performances: Dan Moseley 3 for 29, Harry Hughes 38.


268 for 6

91 all out Wiltshire

won by

177 runs

Wiltshire won the toss and elected to bat on a fast and true Llanarth wicket.  Despite a hostile early spell from Ben Morris, they reached 59 before the loss of the first wicket to Eoin Shackleton. Wiltshire then piled on the runs but to Gwent's credit, heads did not drop and some good spells from Shackleton, Sam Protheroe and Tom Pipe ensured Wiltshire did not get away and post a 300+ target which which seemed in possible given the state of the pitch. The ground fielding was reasonable but a challenging target was still set if Gwent were to be successful on a very good wicket with a lightning fast outfield.

Gwent had the worst possible start with thee players back in the pavilion by the time the score was on 14. Left arm quick Robbins made life very uncomfortable for the batters and he went on to claim 4 wickets in his 5-over spell. The Gwent innings was in a sorry state and only Tom Pipe (28) and Harry Hughes (24) with very mature knocks gave the Gwent innings a sense of respectability and they were, in fact, the only batters to reach double figures. The innings eventually reached its inevitable conclusion with 15 overs still remaining.

Gwent won the toss and elected to bat on a fast and true Abergavenny wicket.  Having lost an early wicket, Hugo Caldicott and Will Heath batted very well together until Caldicott was run out on 49 with the score on 110. Heath then scored a fine 69.  However, the innings of the day was that of Harry Hughes who came to the wicket and promptly smashed 7 fours and 5 sixes in a brilliant score of 94 not out in just 55 balls. 

In reply, Carmarthenshire lost wickets at frequent intervals with Gwent bowling tight lines and were backed up by good fielding. The only batsman to make any headway was Moore who hit a fine unbeaten 61. The wickets were shared around six six bowlers.

Best Performances: Harry Hughes 94no, Will Heath 69, Hugo Caldicott 49

Gwent won the toss and elected to bat on an excellent Newport wicket.  Having lost a wicket to the first ball of the match,  Sam Protheroe and Will Heath steadied the ship somewhat until Heath was run out. Harry Hughes once again attacked from the start and hit 6 fours and 1 six in a quick-fire 34 in just 16 balls. However, his stay at the crease was brief  and from then on the Gwent innings stumbled to 159 off just 9.4 overs. Protheroe showed the others how to do it by scoring a fine 59 as one-by-one his partners succumbed to the Cardiff & Vale attack.

In reply, Cardiff & Vale got off to a sound start with Mulcahy (23) looking in good form but they too lost wickets at frequent intervals.  However, their batsmen produced better scores than their Gwent counterparts and the match ended in a comfortable win for them.

Best Performances: Sam Protheroe 59
West Glamorgan     Match postponed due to the weather; it proved impossible to rearrange.
North East Wales

118 all out North East Wales

won by

3 wkts

Despite a grey and drizzly day at the start, the game got underway at Abergavenny, as North East Wales put Gwent in, understandably on a green wicket.  Despite losing an early wicket, it didn’t look like the conditions would phase Gwent as they started their innings. Sam Protheroe and Hugo Caldicott looked steady until their partnership was broken. From then on the batters struggled against the bowling of Max Lloyd and Harrison Speed, who picked up two wickets each. Two run outs from  Mali Auty tied up the Gwent innings with ten overs left.  Protheroe top-scored with 25.

Gwent’s opening bowler, Ben Morris with a fine 4 for 25, took the fight to North East Wales from the beginning dispatching their top four batters for only 31 runs. However, a partnership from Rohit (26) and Frank McDonals Brown (29) started to steady the ship for the away side who  eventually won the game with five overs to spare.

Best Performances: Ben Morris 4 for 25
