Weekend Wrap - Saturday Edition

Wins for 2's, 3's, Women, Development and Legends

A sunny weekend at Hayes saw The Mote visiting the 1st XI.

Hayes batted first were keen to build a score with Beau Couldrey (20) promoted to open the batting with Grant Sheen (17) and both openers got starts, as did Jamie Askew (18) and Hayden Walsh (21) but no-one went on to build a big innings.

Scott Gallagher (42) built on his form in the 2nd XI and with Connor Byrne (13) chipping in, Hayes closed on 189 all out in the final over.

Grant (10-2-20-1) opened the bowling and bowled tightly but with a modest total to defend wickets were needed and although Grant and Beau (10-0-36-2) removed both openers, The Mote did have a Kent 2nd XI batsman who carried the innings and despite 3 late wickets for Connor (10-0-46-3) The Mote got the win with 3 overs to spare.

The 2nd XI travelled to Upchurch looking to build on their excellent start.

With Upchurch failing to provide an Umpire Sam's boys had to bat first.

Skipper Sam Davis (1) fell early and with the next few batsmen falling quickly too, a struggle looked on the cards - however young Liam Buttery (106*) thought differently and scored an excellent century. Connor Daniels (28), Mark Trevatt (32) and Jason Thompson (18*) offered fine support as Hayes closed on 229-6.

With opening bowler Tom Davis (15-4-16-5) in fine form Upchurch were soon struggling. With all the bowlers bowling tight lines it was Michael Robertson (6.5-0-17-4) who insured there would be no rear guard action from Upchurch and they finally succumbed to 100 all out.

6 from 6 for Sam and a great start for the 2nd XI.

The 3rd XI hosted BOCA and were also looking to go 6 from 6.

Batting first, Josh Pratt (44) and Ramiro Rajkumar (65) put on a strong opening partnership and with Joe Tousent (77) and Delrick Adikari (31) also amongst the runs, Hayes chalked up a massive 297-6 in their 40 overs.

The final details of the BOCA reply aren't available currently but the bowlers didn't let the batsmen down and BOCA were dismissed for 162.

Congratulations to Jewel and the side for a stunning start to the season

The 4's travelled to New Ifield to play their 1st XI so a tough task for skipper Sam, but with young William Hadley (8-1-28-4) showing fine form, Hayes looked to have New Ifield pegged back, but a late flurry of runs saw them all out for 171.

2 wickets a piece for Shrijeet Desai and Cameron Smart

However Hayes were soon struggling in their reply and it was left to Joe Lambourne (32) and Leo Webster (33) to put some gloss on a disappointing total of 125.

Sunday's games will feature tomorrow!
