Herefordshire

125 all out

95 all out Herefordshire

won by 30 runs

Gwent won the toss and asked Herefordshire to bat first, on a wicket that had a bit of moisture after a heavy shower. They made slow progress and were 52 for 2 in the eighteenth over but AJ Adams (45) moved the score onto 110 for 4 in the twenty eighth. However, the two Gwent spinners, Tom Franklin (3-36) and L.McCarthy (3-15) were brought into the attack and made light work of the remaining batters, taking three wickets each to bowl out the opposition with twelve still left.

But Gwent's reply got off to the worst possible start losing an opener off the third ball. They never put any partnerships together and were bowled out for a very disappointing total with eighteen of their allotted overs left.  This wa an excellent performance with the ball let down by a poor one with the bat.

Best Performances: Tom Franklin 3 for 36, Lewis McCarthy 3 for15

Pembrokeshire

144 all out

204 all out Gwent won

by 60 runs

Gwent won the toss and elected to bat first on a very good surface in hot conditions. They started strongly reaching 52 with loss by the eighth over. James Archer scored 38 at the top of the order. However, Pembrokeshire remained determined and started to pick up a number of quick wickets leaving Gwent on 120 for 7 at the second drinks interval. Tom Franklin's half-century helped steady the ship and enabled Gwent to reach a competitive total.  However, would they rue their failure not to bat out their overs, leaving seven unused?

Sadly for them, Pembrokeshire didn’t makethe same start as the Gwent batsman did, losing two early wickets by the tenth over to Lewis Watkins. But they continued to show resilience and chipped away at the Gwent total. After the drinks interval ,though, Gwent's U13 player Ben Morris took the ball, picking up 3 wickets for only 2 runs off 4 overs. This made the task very difficult for Pembrokeshire from there on in and they fell well short of their target despite a solid last wicket stand from their last two batsmen.  Archer completed a fine match with four dismissals behind the stumps.

Best Performances: Tom Franklin 50, Ben Morris 3 for 2, James Archer 38, James Archer 4 catches.

Berkshire    

Match cancelled

North East Wales

288 for 8

45 for 1 Match abandoned

Gwent won the toss and elected to field first given the wet and overcast conditions. North East Wales made a steady start to the innings with W. Jones (60) taking the initiative against the Gwent bowlers. A solid partnership from W. Jones and C. Johnson (40) gave them a solid platform to build from. The Gwent bowlers shared the wickets around but some lower order resistance, namely from S. Edwards (76),  left Gwent with a challenging target.

The Gwent openers made a solid start to the innings.  However just as the rain started to fall they lost their first wicket. The umpires made the decision to bring the covers on at this point and, unfortunately, the sides did not take the field again.

Worcestershire     Match cancelled due to the weather
Pembrokeshire

147 for 8

148 for 5 Gwent won

by 5 wkts

Gwent travelled to Haverfordwest to play Pembrokeshire in a forty-over fixture. They won the toss and elected to bowl first given the overcast conditions and green wicket. They struck early, taking their first wicket in the fifth over but a steady partnership between G. Scourfield (39) and G. James (30) saw them begin to build an innings.  Gwent then started to take wickets at regular intervals, led by Lewis McCarthy, who took three in his five overs, and restricted Pembrokeshire to a very achievable total.

Gwent lost a wicket in their first over and, thereafter, at regular intervals.  However, a great knock by opener Ben Davies, whose 81 included 46 in boundaries, supported by the middle order saw Gwent reach their target within nine overs to spare.

Best Performances: Ben Davies 81, Lewis McCarthy 3 for 26

Cardiff & Vale     Match cancelled due to the weather
Devon

297 for 1

216 all out Devon won

by 81 runs

Devon won the toss at a sunny Abergavenny CC and elected to bat first. Their batsman dominated proceedings with the loss of just one wicket in a total thrree runs short of 300. Openers A Kopparamil (126no) and J. Horler (80) batted superbly laying the foundation to allow S.Read (55*) to finish things off.

Gwent started their innings looking up for the challenge of chasing the score down but, sadly, a middle order collapse made the task very difficult. However, a superb partnership from Morgan Bevans and Jack Davies put Gwent back into a position where a win looked possible. Unfortunately, Davies succumbed after a fighting 57 and when Bevans was out for a fine 84  the momentum could not continue.

Best Performances: Morgan Bevans 84, Jack Davies 57

Cardiff & Vale

245 for 4

148 all out won by 97 runs

The final game of the season saw Gwent travel to St Fagans to face Cardiff and Vale. Gwent won the toss and elected to bowl first and the Cardiff & Vale batsmen got off to a solid start posting 50 for the first wicket. Gwent then struck again quickly, but a solid partnership from Phillips (52) and Jha (87) kept the runs coming for the hosts. Eventually, Gwent dismissed Phillips but Pugsley (41) continued to add to the score with Jha leaving Gwent a challenging target.

Gwent got off to a similar start reaching 40 before losing their first wicket. Opening batsman Franklin (39) looked steady at the crease until being dismissed by Mulcahy, who would finish with 6 wickets. Ben Kellaway, playing two years up, was the only batsman offering really resistance for Gwent as Mulcahy (6 for 24) continued to pick up steady wickets with support from Phillips (3 for 15). Kellaway finished unbeaten on 45 when he ran out of partners.

Best Performance: Ben Kellaway 45no
