CL Glamorgan v Gwent

Gwent had a disappointing result in their Channel League match against Glamorgan at Pyle & Kenfig on Sunday 19th May 2019.

Gwent were hampered by the non-availability of a number of their top players and were forced to field an understrength team.

Gwent lost the morning foursomes by 3½ points to 1½ and the afternoon singles were lost by 7½ points to 2½.

Glamorgan were fielding their full team which left Gwent with an uphill battle throughout the day.

Dyfed Boys v Gwent Boys match which was played at Machynys on Friday 26th April 2019.

Brother Luke Bearcroft also captured a notable scalp in his defeat of Joss Lerwill.

It was Gwents tail end of James Drury, Alex Morgan, and Piers Murphy that came in with good wins to secure a singles victory and a halved match which was played in very difficult conditions throughout the day.

Gwent Boys Matchplay Championship 2018

Gwent Boys Matchplay Championship which was played at Greenmeadow Golf Club on Monday/Tuesday 29th/30th October.

The course was in excellent condition for the time of year and the lack of leaves on the course enabled play to progress quite briskly in the chill autumn wind.

Having endured some very close matches on the Monday morning, two of which went to the 19th hole and one match being won on the 18th by 1 hole, the two finalists Harry Paterson and Cameron Powell progressed through their Monday afternoon rounds somewhat easier than their first rounds.

The final was an excellent match with Harry having established a lead of 2 up on the front 9. Cameron gradually clawed his way back to make the match all square at the start of the back 9. A decisive moment came at the par 4 16th hole when Cameron drove the green and sunk the putt for an eagle 2 putting him 1 up. Harry failed to get down in 2 from the fringe of the 17th green and Cameron won the match 2 & 1 and with it the Gwent Boys Matchplay Championship for 2018.
