182 for 5

180 for 5 Dorset won

by 5 wkts

Gwent Travelled To Canford School, which was an absolute picture of a ground, won the toss and batted first but they didn't get off to the greatest of starts, losing two quick wicketsDavid Clarke and James Watkins set about re-building the innings and they had reached 82 for 2. Apart from Clarke (36) and James Watkins (30) none of the other batsman were on form as Gwent reached a total which, one felt, was not going to be enough. 

So it proved, although the wayward Gwent bowling meant that meant that Dorset reached the target with 42 balls left; precisely the number of extra balls they gifted their opponents through bowling wides. The one exception to this was David Clarke who took 3 for 31 in nine overs, including two superb caught and bowled dismissals.

Best Performances: David Clarke 36 and 3-31, James Watkins 30


174 all out

176 for 4 Gwent won

by 6 wkts

Gwent won the toss and bowled first on a fine day at Newport CC. Only five Herefordshire players got into double figures as Whizz Ettinger top-scored with 54. The Gwent bowling attack was excellent with David Clarke, Lewys Jones, Jack Wright and Cameron Rees taking two wickets apiece at around two runs per over. Only thirteen extras were bowled which was a massive improvement on the Dorset game.

When Gwent batted, Ryan Avery shepherded the innings superbly, with James Watkins making a second successive 30, to ensure a Gwent victory with eight overs to spare.  Avery finished unbeaten after a fine 84.

Mid Glamorgan


248 for 2 Mid Glamorgan

 won by 4wkts

Gwent travelled to Miskin Manor CC to play on a superb batting pitch, considering the recent weather. They lost the toss and were put in to bat with Ryan Avery and Sam Hope-Bell putting on a 67-run partnership in thirteen overs. The runs really started to flow when David Clarke came to the crease and put on a partnership of 180 with Avery. Gwent finished on a very good total with Clarke competing an excellent 101 off just 110 balls and Avery finishing on a fine 82 not out.

Gwent then bowled and found it just as tough in the field as the opening pair of Mid Glamorgan put on 121 for the first wicket. Liam Davies scored a terrific 123 not out in 131 balls as he led his team to victory off the penultimate ball of the match.   Lewys Jones took two of the four wickets to fall.

Best Performances: David Clarke 101, Ryan Avery 82no


177 for 3

176 for 4 Carmarthen

 won by 7 wkts

Gwent won the toss and batted on a superb batting track. However, the Gwent opening pair were constrained by accurate Camarthen bowling which limited them to 59 off 15 overs Ryan Avery and Sam Hope-Bell then picked things up and moved on to a century stand in the 21st over. With the score on 115, Hope-Bell was caught for 62 trying to push the rate up and was soon followed by Avery, run out for 54.  The run-rate then fell for the rest of the innings and the team finished on a disappointingly low score.  This was demonstrated in the ease with which Carmarthen,  led by Ben Morgan (59), won the game with eight overs and seven wickets to spare.

Best Performances: Sam Hope-Bell 62, Ryan Avery 54

Cardiff & Vale

255 for 6

95 all out Cardiff & Vale

 won by 160 runs

Cardiff and Vale won the toss and batted first on what was a good pitch. Their opening batters set about the Gwent opening bowlers and were well on the way for a huge total at 118 for 0 after seventeen overs at a rate of nearly seven an over. However, both went soon after as Gwent bowlers Sam Hope-Bell and James Watkins halved the scoring rate taking two wickets apiece.  Four of the Cardiff & Vale batters made fifties.

The Gwent innings had little to commend it as only one man got into double figures. Gwent were bowled out for 95 in what was a poor all round performance and, what is more, they only lasted twenty-two of their allotted fifty overs.  The only one to hold his head up high was Sam Hope-Bell, who scored a third of the teams runs. 

Best Performance: Sam Hope-Bell 32

Cardiff & Vale

194 for 9

145 all out Cardiff & Vale

 won by 49 runs

Gwent won the toss and bowled on a fairly green deck which still played well.  They took wickets consistently but a good partnership of 91 enabled Cardiff up to 194-9 in their 50 overs. Rhys Wathan and James Watkins were the pick of the bowlers with two wickets apiece.

Gwent never really got going with the bat as only Scott O'Leary, playing a year up, and David Clarke made any runs of note and the team was bowled out with 4.5 overs still left to bowl.

Best Performances: Scott O'Leary 39, David Clarke 32
