April 2015

Newport CC captain Michael Clayden, scored a superb 117 in 104 balls, for Wales Minor Counties 
as they romped to a 72 run victory against Wiltshire,
in their first Unicorns KO Trophy (Group 1) Match, at Newport Cricket Club on the weekend.

Wales MC elected to bat on winning the toss on a superb batting wicket and scored 352 all out 
off their allotted 50 overs. Clayden (15 fours), was the main contributor, 
but he was also aided by Gareth Ansell who scored a good 82. 
The two put on a match winning partnership of 121 for the 2nd wicket.
Although, always in the game, the Wiltshire reply fell away towards the end of their innings 
and were eventually all out for 280 in 44 overs, to give Wales a winning start to their one day campaign.
