167 for 7

141 all out Pembrokeshire

 won by 26 runs

Gwent took on Pembrokeshire in the U15 final at Pontypridd CC. It was a very dull and wet day throughout and the game was reduced to 40-over per side in recognition of the poor conditions. Gwent won the toss and chose to field but started off bowling poorly and Pembrokeshire raced to 59 without losing a wicket off just 10 overs. However, after going for six an over in the first ten, they did tighten things up and the rate dropped to 3.6 for the last thirty.  Matthew Brook took three wickets while James Simkins bowled a particularly mean spell taking 2 for 5 in his six overs

The target of 168 to win should have been within Gwent's capabilities but their wickets fell at regular intervals. There was still hope with Will Davey at the crease but, when he departed to a dogged 44, it seemed to evaporate. The main difference between the two teams was that Gwent couldn't raise their game for the Final whereas Pembrokeshire could and deserved their win.

 Best Performances:  Will Davey 44, Matthew Brook 3 - 40, James Simkins 2 - 5

Cardiff & Vale

174 all out

144 all out Cardiff & Vale

 won by 30 runs

Gwent took on Cardiff and Vale in a friendly match at Ebbw Vale CC.  On an overcast day Gwent won the toss and put Cardiff into bat on what was a very good wicket. Gwent made light work of the Cardiff top order, with James Jacob and Hywel Rose bowling really well. After 10 overs Cardiff were 23 for 3. But in came B.Yates (42) and he started to take the attack to the Gwent bowlers. Gwent bowled Cardiff out for 174 in the end. Which looked about 30-40 short of a good total considering how good the wicket was. James Jacob was the pick of the bowlers with 4 for 28 in his nine overs with Hywel Rose picking up two wickets.

Gwent's reply was going great guns as they were 50 for1 off 10 overs.  However, a mini collapse saw them slump to 70 for 5. Gwent were eventually bowled  out for 144, Yates (5-32) showing he's not just a big hitter with the bat. Joe Voke (35) was the only batter to get amongst the runs.

Best Performances: James Jacob 4 - 28, Joe Voke 35


68 for 10

69 for 1 Gwent won

by 9 wickets

Gwent travelled to Ross-on-Wye on a rare stunning day but the wicket was green and had a little moisture from the morning dew so they won the toss and bowled.  It turned out a very one-sided affair with Gwent bowling out Herefordshire for 68.  The main destroyer James Jacobs, with 5-6 off 10 overs, showed excellent control and skill. Meanwhile, Will Davey behind the stumps had a great day taking 5 catches.

Gwent made light of the total with Joe Voke and Will Davey putting on 60 before Joe (30) was bowled by a ball that kept low. Will carried his bat for a fine 36 not out as Gwent ran out comfortable winners. Overall, this was a first class display by the whole team.

Best Performances: James Jacob 5 - 6, Will Davey 5 catches & 36no, Joe Voke 30


124 for 2

122 all out Dorset won

Dorset never really looked in trouble and reached their target with 24 overs to spare with W.Caldwell getting a very good 63 not out. Only Dan Jones bowled well for Gwent taking taking both wickets to fall for 28 in his eight overs.
