Weekend Wrap - Week 8

1st XI Roll On

Nonnington, making their first Kent League visit to Hayes, were the visitors on Saturday.

Electing to bat first, skipper Beau Couldrey fell early, but then a great partnership between Finnan Bryan (57) and James Bamber (90) piled on the runs and took the score to 162 before they both fell in quick succession.

Grant Sheen (20), Joel Couldry (22) and Dave Giles (23) all pushed on, but the Nonnington bowlers fought back and the Hayes innings finished on an imposing 275-8.

The Hayes attack, which has been lethal all season, were soon amongst the wickets.

David Giles (10-1-37-4), Stuart Eddicott (10-0-37-3) and Scott Gallagher (10-3-28-2) made sure that the total was never to be threatened and Nonnington finished on 130 all out.

Back to Back wins and Orpington next up for the side.

The 2's travelled to Gravesend, looking to bounce back from last week defeat.

Winning the toss, skipper Sam Davis elected to bat.

Sadly his wicket was first to fall but Joe Tousent (53), ably supported by Martin Pratt (15), Rob Jones (36) and Michael Robertson (18), saw the Hayes total reach 197-8.

Gravesend is a good wicket to bat on and so it proved - the Hayes attack led by Tom Davis (10-0-25-1) and Jayson Thompson (10-2-36-1) bowled well but with Sam Upton (9-0-45-2) being the only other wicket taker, Gravesend chased down the target within 48 overs.

The Meadow saw a close game for the 3rd XI.

Belvedere were the visitors and Hayes batted first. Mo Rahman (39) and Hasan Babu (38), ably supported by Rumel Choudhury (35*) saw Hayes post 191-7 in their 40 overs.

MD Belal (10-2-28-2) , skipper Jewel (7-1-35-3) bowled well but with the last over arriving, Belvedere needed 12 to win - this soon became 4 from 2 balls but Shoyeb Rahman (10-1-55-3) clean bowled the last 2 batsmen for a tight win!

The 4's travelled to Old Wilsonians and bowling first the wickets were spread around as OW's reached 177-7. Will Hadley (7-1-13-0) and Isabel Steet (7-0-25-1) continued their fine opening partnership.

However the best bowling award goes to Graeme Morrison (6-0-33-3) which included a rare hat-trick! Congratulations to Graeme who achieved the feat with the last 2 balls of one over followed by the first ball of his next - sadly Graeme forgot that he had accomplished this rare event!

The Hayes reply was led by Steve Cotton (49) and Leo Webster (32) but with runs being hard to come by with some tight bowling, the innings ended on 130-6.

Sunday saw the Women travel to the County Ground in Guildford.

Batting first, Jess Jackson (33) continued her fine form but with support hard to come by, Hayes were skittled for 113.

An experienced Guildford side proved too strong for the young Hayes team and they scored the required runs for the loss of 3 wickets.

The Development side hosted Sidcup, who batted first.

3 wickets apiece for Leo Webster and Finlay Baker saw Sidcup dismissed for 168.

Lewis Thisleton (26)|, Finn Bryan (73*) and Michael Robertson (43*) made light of the reply as Hayes cruised home for the loss of 2 wickets.

Another Good Weekend for Hayes Cricket!
