Newport CC- First Welsh Club To Gain Accreditation 2004

Clubmark

Newport Cricket Club has become the first club in Wales to achieve Accreditation, meeting stringent benchmark standards of 
coaching, facilities,
organisation and safety. The new award for excellence was presented to the club by the CBW Chairman
Huw Davies, along with CBW Director of
Cricket, Mark Frost, at a special celebration with the club to officially open their new
£70 000 four lane outdoor net facility. The Club is now officially
one of eight planned centres of Cricket Excellence in Wales,
with both top class Indoor and Outdoor net and playing facilities.

Glamorgan coach John Derrick, once in charge of the Indoor Cricket School at Ebbw Vale, and one of many distinguished past and present county 
cricketers present, said, 'It is a fantastic facility and in terms of variety, one of the best in Wales. The surfaces of the nets are such that two remain
constant whatever the weather conditions, while two change with the conditions, giving players experience of almost any pitch they might play on.
The Gwent Coaching Association is one of the best and Dave and Mike Knight, (the head coaches), do a great job at Newport. Players from East Wales
are beginning to dominate the Glamorgan County Championship scene at present and such a facility will undoubtedly ensure many more come
through.'
Glamorgan's England Academy wicket keeper, Mark Wallace said, 'Facilities like the one at Newport are important in terms of teaching players 
the right techniques and getting them to enjoy playing cricket.'
Cricket Board of Wales Regional Development Officer, Steve Watkins said, 'The facility will not only benefit Newport but all the Gwent Regional 
squads as well. The Newport Club has to be congratulated on working hard over the years to get to a level of facilities second to none in Wales.'
CBW Chairman, Huw Davies, who presented the Accreditation Certificate to the club said, 'Newport have set the standard. It's no surprise to me 
for as long as I can remember Newport has always been a big status club. They have shown the vision to help safeguard the future of cricket in
Wales

175 Anniversary Celebrations End at Lords

Newport Cricket Club ended their 175 Anniversary celebrations in style, with a trip to Lords (Home of Cricket), to play a 
prestigious friendly match against 'The Cross Arrows'.

An early morning start saw a coach full of players, officials, friends and parents leave for London in near total darkness. However, with the weather 
forecast good, Newport were about to play a game of cricket on October 2nd. The 'Cross Arrows' who play on the Nursery ground at Lords, throughout
September and into October, were to be the club's opposition, having been invited to play the game had been a tremendous coup.
The coach arrived at Lords in glorious sunshine, anticipation was high, a quick look around, and it was soon time for the game to start.
Newport winning the toss and electing to bat. It was to be a game never to forget for young Max Scarr and Michael Clayden. From the first ball of 
the innings the Newport openers set the standard and with glorious shots to all parts of the ground, the two put on an opening partnership of 181
in just 22 overs. Clayden was first out falling victim to Keith Dutch for 98, while Scarr went on to complete a momentous innings of 134. Adam
Millichip with 42 and Tom Cleeve 41 not out, along with Nathan Millichip 25 and Kyle Tudge 21 saw Newport to an impressive looking 402-6 off
their 50 overs.
The Cross Arrows were never in the game and when they lost two early wickets, the writing was on the wall. Only Middlesex reserve wicket 
keeper Dion Nash with 49, saved a complete rout as the Cross Arrows were bowled all out for just 115. Left arm spinner Max Scarr making it a
day never to forget with 3 wickets for 3 runs off 5 overs. Newport eventually winning by a massive 287 runs.

James and Clayden in Record Unbroken, Opening Partnership (303)

Newport Cricket Club opening batsmen, Carwyn James and Michael Clayden both scored unbeaten centuries, as the club's record books were rewritten when they starred in a match winning, unbroken opening partnership of 303 runs against Croesyceiliog at Spytty Park, in the South Wales Premier League.

Newport, having been put into bat by Croesyceiliog, were quick to take the initiative with openers James and Clayden soon in complete control. After 20 overs the Newport score was 106-0 and a big total looked a distinct possibility. The Croesyceiliog bowlers began to wilt in the hot afternoon sun, but James and Clayden continued to play freely, scoring runs all around the ground. Carwyn James scoring his fifty off just 55 balls, and Michael Clayden soon following scoring his fifty off 61 balls. The 200 run partnership was made off 40 overs, and then followed a 'batting master class' as both batsmen cut loose. Carwyn James was first to his century, and it was not long before Clayden followed suit. The Croesyceiliog attack had no answer, as the pair showing batting maturity beyond their years, picking up runs off virtually every ball. Once he had scored his century James despatched the bowling to all parts of the ground, while Clayden was content to take the many singles and 2's on offer. The final hundred runs being scored off just 10 overs. The final Newport total of 303 – 0 in 50 overs, breaking the Newport opening partnership scoring record, with Carwyn James on 158 not out and Michael Clayden finishing on 126 not out.

At the interval Croesyceiliog looked a beaten side, as they faced their daunting task crashing to a paltry 132 all out, leaving Newport winners by a massive 171 runs.
