League Season Ends With Wins for 1's and 2's

The 1st XI made the short journey to our near neighbours, Bromley Cricket Club, looking to end the season on high.

Bromley elected to bat against a Hayes side back to near full strength.

Connor Byrne (8-1-23-2) continued his fine form and took 25 wickets in the season - finishing 11th in league bowling.

Andrew Eddicott (10-2-34-2) , Beau Couldrey (9.2-1-24-3) and Scott Gallagher (3-0-8-2) all bowled well as Bromley were bowled out for 162 in the 46th over.

Our bowling and fielding has been excellent this season, with Rhys Morgan also taking 21 wickets during the year.

The batting has failed to fire and once again we raced to 79-1 with Finnan Bryan (22), Beau Couldrey (24) and Jamie Askew (33) all contributing.

The middle order, with the exception of Scott Gallagher (21), struggled and at 131-8 a familiar looking defeat looked likely.

However skipper Simon Routh (29*) and Rhys Morgan (11*) had other ideas and a fine partnership saw Hayes over the line for no further loss.

A good way to finish a tough season and the first win since June 24th at least offers hope for 2018.

The League Winning 2nd XI hosted Broadstairs at Hayes.

Josh Pratt (70) followed his fine half-century from last week with another good innings and with support from James Bamber (20), Finlay Baker (25) and skipper Sam Davis (18*), Hayes posted 210-9 in their 50 overs.

In reply, devastating opening spells from Stuart Eddicott (12-3-38-3) and Mark Trevatt (11.2-4-24-3) saw Broadstairs reduced to 53-5 before some middle order resistance saw them reach 138 all out .

Finlay Baker (10-0-44-2) supporting the openers with two wickets as Hayes closed off the season in fine style.

The 2nd XI won the league by a huge 49 point margin and brothers Sam and Tom Davis finished 3rd in the league batting and bowling tables!

The 3's and 4's season finished last week.

On Sunday the Development Side maintained their unbeaten record, having already wrapped up the league, by defeating HSBC.

Scores are not yet posted but HSBC were bowled out for 159, a total Hayes chased down before the rains arrived! Finnan Bryan with 58 led the successful run chase.
