Weekend Wrap

2nd XI only winners on Saturday but excitement for the 4's!

The 1st XI travelled to table toppers Bickley Park and were invited to bat.

Losing 2 early wickets, it was left to Beau Couldrey (35), Hayden Walsh (62) and Scott Gallagher (38) to rebuild the innings and at 136-3 it looked like they had - only for the wickets to start tumbling and a total of 165-9 was the best Hayes could offer.

Connor Byrne (8-1-39-1) and Stuart Eddicott (5-1-18-1) were quickly amongst the wickets and at 98-5 Hayes looked in the game. However a brief rain delay allowed Bickley to re-group and they only lost more wickets to get home with 8 overs remaining.

Grant Sheen (9.2-1--31-2) and Hayden Walsh (10-3-31-3) were the pick of the bowling but once again it was the batting were we struggled and although Bickley had a few scares, there weren't enough runs on the board,

The 2nd XI hosted Bickley Park and were looking to get back to winning ways.

Bickley elected to bat first and Colin Couldrey (11-2-35-2) was soon picking up wickets in a rare return to opening the innings.Jayson Thompson (7-1-23-3) and the evergreen Graeme (Peter) Morrison (13-0-43-3) were too good for the Bickley batting who struggled to 165-9.

A century partnership between skipper Sam Davis (42) and Tomas Gallagher (54) saw Hayes on the way to resounding victory with Martin Pratt (27*) and Joe Tousent (35*) seeing Hayes home to a 10 wicket win.

The undefeated 3rd XI travelled to Burgess Park and on winning the toss, elected to bat.

Delrick Adikari (25), Dammika Silva (38) and Mo Rahman (37) were the only batsmen to get going and Hayes were bowled out for 186 in the 40th over.

Despite Kevin Coates (7-0-42-2) picking up a couple of wickets, Burgess Park got home in the 30th over.

A first lost for Jewel and the boys but they remain top of their league.

Sam Millard and the 4th XI hosted Snodland and were asked to bat. Jeremy Browne (66) and Joe Lambourne (37) were the pick of the batting as the team posted 208-5 in their overs.

Lewis Knox (7-0-49-3) picked up 3 wickets but it was Leo Webster (7.2-0-32-5) who was the star of the show. Snodland had a strong opening partnership, but Leo dismissed both openers and with Sondland needing 1 to win, he bowled the last man for a thrilling tie!

Sunday saw the Development side scheduled to host Gravesend but sadly the opposition didn't show and a walk over for Hayes.

The Women hosted Bishop's Stortford and batting first looked set at 81-1 - however a batting collapse saw them bowled out for 130 in the 50th over.

Bishop's Stortford made light work of the total, cruising home for the loss of 4 wickets in the 35th over.

Next week see's the half way point of the league season and the first league visit of Bromley for 25 years - coupled with our annual VP's and Ex Players Lunch!
