Cardiff & Vale

148 for 7

144 for 9 Cardiff & Vale

won by 3 wkts

Gwent took on Cardiff & Vale in the U15 Welsh Final on a lovely but windy day at Sudbrook CC.  The visitors won the toss and decided to field first and proceeded to bowl a really good line and length all innings.  Consequently, Gwent found it very tough to score but still reached 80 for the loss of one wicket. However, they then lost four quick wickets from which they never really recovered. In fact, they rather limped to a total for which they would have to bowl at their best to defend.  Only Jack Thorpe-Yon (29), Gareth Ansell (28) and Joe Voke (24) made any sort of runs. 

When Cardiff & Vale batted it was still a very difficult track to score on. Like Gwent, they lost several wickets in the eighties and, for a time, Gwent were definitely in with a chance.  However, C. Brown made it look easy with an excellent 69 which got Cardiff & Vale to the target total with an over to spare.  The pick of the Gwent bowlers was James Hussey with 2-25 off 8 overs.

It was disappointing end to the season but Gwent had given their all and were beaten by the better team on the day.


126 for 9

198 for 9 Gwent won

by 72 runs

Gwent took on Carmarthenshire in the Welsh Championship Semi-Final at Newport Fugitives on a lovely sunny September day. The away team won the toss and took to the field and Gwent’s innings didn’t get off to a great start with the loss of the first wicket in the second over. Ben Wellington then joined Jack Thorpe-Yon at the crease and they put on a 40-run stand before Wellington played on for a hard worked 20. In came U14 player Joe Voke and he and Thorpe-Yon put on 81 runs  before Voke went for a fine 33. Thorpe-Yon soon followed for an excellent 65 and Gwent got to a very competitive total in their 45 overs.

In reply, a good all-round fielding bowling display by Gwent saw wickets fall steadily and their total was never really threatened.    James Hussey, with three wickets, and Lewis Holley, with two, were the pick of the Gwent bowlers.

Best Performances:   J. Thorpe-Yon 69, Joe Voke 35, James Hussey 3 for 9

North East Wales

88 all out

90 for 2 Gwent won

by 8 wickets

Gwent travelled the long distance to Bersham C C to play N.E. Wales in their first Championship game of the season. It was an overcast day with the wicket looking very damp from all the rain over the past few days. Gwent won the toss and put N.E. Wales into bat. The opening pair of Ben Jones and Wellington bowled very well but the introduction of spin won the game for Gwent. Matt Jones and Scott Greaves took 7 wickets between them to bowl N.E. Wales out for just 88.

Gwent got to their target in just 15 overs with Dan Lezar scoring an unbeaten half-century ably assisted by Gareth Ansell (29) for a comfortable victory.

Best Performances: Matt Jones 4 for 32, Scott Greaves 3 for 5, Dan Lezar 51no


Match cancelled due to the weather

Mid Wales

92 all out

96 for 4 Gwent won

by 6 wickets

Gwent took on Mid Wales at Ebbw Vale C C on a wicket which, considering the weather, was very good. They won the toss and invited Mid Wales to bat first. Again, as in other matches, Ben Jones and Ben Wellington bowled very good opening spells. Ben Jones took 1-23 off 9 overs and Ben Wellington1-4 off 5 overs.  Also, as previously, the introduction of spin turned the game for Gwent with Lewis Holley and Callum Phillpott taking three wickets each as  Mid Wales were bowled out in 34 overs.

With the weather getting much better, batting second was a little easier. Led by Richard Rhyderch-Roberts(36) and Elliot Jenkins (24), Gwent up to their target with 25 overs to spare. A big thank you must go out to the U14 players who stepped in to cover players lost to a Wales match; Nicky Pepper, Jack Scarbrough and Joe Voke, with the Voke hitting the winning runs.

Best Performances:  Lewis Holley 3 for 14, Callum Phillpott 3 for 15, Richard Rhyderch-Roberts 36

167 for 9 Herefordshire

won by 25 runs

Herefordshire won the toss and decided to bat on what looked like a cracking batting pitch. Their openers got off to a solid start with some good opening bowling by Ben Wellington and Cameron Emmott. When James Hussey was brought into the attack he took a wicket in his first over.  A good partnership then developed before Hussey got his second victimGreaves' left arm spin was introduced and he also took a wicket in his first over.  However, Harry Children (42) was hitting the Gwent bowlers all over the park when Greaves tempted him down the pitch and had him stumped by Dan Lezar ( the first of three stumpings). G. Cook then got a good 37 before becoming the first of Ben Wellington's three wickets.

Gwent innings got off to the worst possible start, losing 3 quick wickets for just 13 runs Richard Rhyderch-Roberts and Lewis Holley set about steadying the ship before the latter was caught for a hard-fought 22.  Elliot Jenkins came in and he and Roberts put on 46 before Roberts was out for a well played 39. Four quick wickets then fell to leave Gwent on 125-8. Cameron Emmott and James Kinchin, making his debut for Gwent, batted out the remaining overs and Gwent came up 20 runs short.

Best Performances: Ben Wellington 3-25, Richard Rhyderch-Roberts 39

247 all out


151 all out


won by 96 runs

On a beautiful day for a game of cricket. Gwent lost the toss on what looked like a cracking batting track but turned out to be a little dead and uneven. The Dorset openers got off to a good start, putting on 50 before the first wicket fell to Ben Jones, the first of his four wickets. This was the only highlight of the Gwent bowling unit, as they gave Dorset 56 extras, 47 of which were wides, and the fielding was a major disappointment.

When Gwent batted, the pitch then got more uneven and started to break up, making it hard to time the ball. They rather limped to 151 all out with only Will Davey, who came up from the U14s, getting any sort of score with 27. It was particularly disappointing that the batters could only last 42 overs.

Best Performance: Ben Jones 4 for 24 in 7 overs
