Report of Semi Final Matches

The Under 11 Final will be a repeat of last year’s between Chepstow and Newport.  In their semi-final, Chepstow faced Ebbw Vale who posted 74 for 7 with Ethan Jones leading the way with an unbeaten 41. In reply, Newport were made to fight and lost six wickets before reaching their target.  Rohan Donga was their top scorer with 26 runs while Ethan Jones completed a fine individual performance by taking 4 wickets for 16 runs.  In the other semi-final Chepstow overcame Llanarth in a terrific game of cricket.  The bowling and fielding were of the highest standard making the batters work hard for their runs. Batting first, Chepstow scored 90 for the loss of 3 wickets thanks, mainly, to Filip Chitnis with 34 not out.  Henry Evans, unbeaten on 34, and Tom Stentiford with 19 led the way but Llanarth, agonisingly for them, fell just 5 runs short.

The Under 13 Final will be contested by the same two clubs.  Newport posted an impressive 141 for the loss of one wicket with Harry Hughes leading the way with an unbeaten 65, ably supported by Sam Protheroe with 39. Undaunted, Abergavenny set about the chase with enthusiasm led my Anton Lodder, who scored 61, but they found the task too great and finished 28 runs short.  In the other semi-final Chepstow amassed a very challenging 154 for 2 with Ollie Rayner making an impressive 64 not out and James Kellaway was also unbeaten on 31.  In reply, Ebbw Vale, for whom Ethan Jones was top scorer with 25 not out, only lost one wicket but could only make 72 runs.  This was due to the parsimonious bowling display by the Chepstow attack.  This was best demonstrated by Filip Chitnis whose four overs yielded one wicket and not a single run. 

At Under 15, Chepstow reached their third final in a competitive semi-final with Abergavenny.  Morgan Bevans led the way for Abergavenny with an unbeaten half-century as his side posted 98 for 4.  In reply, Chepstow took the honours but only after losing 7 wickets.  Matteo Goddard was top scorer with 43. The other semi-final saw Monmouth reach their first final at this age-group in a convincing win over the current champions, Newport.  Nathan Berry scored 50, before being retired, out of Newport’s 92 for 7.  In reply, Harry Friend, who also reached the retiring score of 50, and Sam Swingwood, with 30 not out, saw Monmouth to a convincing 9-wicket victory.

Report of Quarter Final Matches

At Under 11, Llanarth racked up a mammoth 167 without losing a wicket with Henry Evans, Tom Stentiford and Arthur Newington-Bridges each retiring in the thirties.  In response, the inexperienced Abertillery team battled through to the nineteenth over but didn’t have the fire-power to get near to the target. This set up a Semi Final with Chepstow who comfortably beat Croesyceiliog.  For Chepstow, James Kellaway (75) and Harry Harkins put on 110 for first wicket and Charlie Beddis (35) and Max Warby 58 for the third as they posted 175 for 3.  Croesyceiliog batted through the twenty overs but, also, came up well short against a more experienced side. Chepstow’s Ollie Taylor took 3 for 8 and Bruno Chitnis was involved in making two run outs.  In the other half of the Draw, Ebbw Vale overcame Sudbrook’s 105 for 4, for whom Harvey Heaven made 21, to win by 8 wickets; their main scorers were Yousaf Iqbal (24) and M Parsons (22). Their opponents in the other Semi Final will be Newport who scored an impressive 168 for 1 with Sophia Smale and Rohan Donga both retiring in their forties and Noah Rice making 26 not out. In reply, Newport Fugitives scored a commendable 114 for 3.

At Under 13, Sudbrook came up against a rampant Abergavennny who bowled them out for 36 with Ben Morris taking 3 for 6 and Tom Pipe (28no) led Abergavenny to a nine-wicket victory.   They now play Newport, who had a convincing ten-wicket win of their own over Newport Fugitives, in the Semi Final.  P Taylor scored 21 for Fugitives as they posted 88 for 7. For Newport, Sophia Smale took a hat-trick while Ross Mohring also took three wickets and made an unbeaten half-century.  In the other half of the Draw, Chepstow posted 132 for 3, with Ben Kellaway making 72, and then restricted Ponthir to 72 for 6.  Their Semi Final opponents will be Ebbw Vale who scored 123 for 6 against Llanarth who, in reply, finished on 99 for 7.

At Under 15, Chepstow got the better of a high-scoring game against Newbridge and now meet Abergavenny in the Semi Final.  Morgan Bevans, who retired on reaching 50, led Abergavenny to 125 for 7.  They then restricted Blackwood to a total of 60 for 4.  In the other half of the Draw, Sam Swingwood retired on reaching 50 out of Monmouth’s 138 for 5.  They then bowled Ponthir out for 82 with Frankie Souto taking 3 for 9. The second Semi Final will be between Monmouth and Newport who defeated Ebbw Vale by 36 runs.  Batting first, Newport scored 147 for 3 with Nathan Berry retiring on 51and Ross Mohring scoring 38.  In reply, Alfie Morgan made 39no but Ebbw Vale finished on 111-6.

Report of First Round Matches

At Under 11, Sudbrook posted 118 for the loss of just one wicket with George Lloyd, leading the way with an unbeaten fifty, ably supported by Toby Palmer with 21 not out.  In reply, Ponthir made 38 for 8Sudbrook now meet Ebbw Vale in the Quarter Final.  Abergavenny, meanwhile, posted a competitive score of 109-7 with Tom Norton contributing 57 of the runs.  In the run-chase that followed Llanarth paced themselves well with Lawrence Johnson making 35 and Henry Evans 23. They passed the Abergavenny total off the penultimate ball for the loss of five wickets. and go on to play Abertillery who won a low-scoring game against Brecon.  In the final match in this Division, Jake Teague, with 30 not out, led Monmouth to 63 for 5 but Croesyceilog reached this total after losing the same number of wickets to set up a Quarter Final with Chepstow.  Newbridge conceded their match with Newport Fugitives who now meet Newport in the next round.

At Under 13, Owen Harris scored 33 in the Monmouth total of 83 for 4 and then took 4 wickets for 7 runs but this wasn’t enough to prevent Sudbrook from winning the match by just one wicket, with Ben Day making 27.  They now meet Abergavenny who had a comprehensive victory over Abertillery with three batters – Alex Holmes, Tom Pipe and Eoin Shackleton – all retiring on reaching fifty as their team amassed 201 for the loss of one wicket. Abertillery did well to only lose three wickets but were far from reaching the target set them.  Panteg and Ponthir played an exciting low-scoring game dominated by the bowlers. Batting first Panteg scored 45 for 9 with Ayaan Syed taking 3 wickets for 0 runs for Ponthir.  Not to be outdone, Abbie Westwood took 4 for 7 and Jack Davies 3 for 8 for Panteg but they couldn’t prevent their opponents from winning by one wicket.  Ponthir will now face Chepstow in the Quarter Final.  In the last match, Newbridge were bowled out for 80 by Ebbw Vale for whom Yousaf Iqbal took 3 for 2. Ebbw Vale then paced their reply well in winning the match by 5 wickets in the last over and now go on to meet Llanarth.  Croesyceiliog conceded their match with Newport Fugitives who now meet Newport in the next round.

At Under 15, Rogerstone posted 105 for 4 but Ebbw Vale chased this down in the last over to win by 6 wickets to set up a Quarter Final with the current champions Newport.  Ponthir restricted Llanarth to 65 for 9 thanks primarily to three wickets from Tom Barry and two from Rhys Smith.   They then passed their opponents' score for the loss of three wickets, two of which were taken by Jonathan Pearce, with Lewis Ford making an unbeaten 36.  Ponthir are now away to Monmouth.  Brecon conceded their match with Newbridge who now meet Chepstow in the next round.
