1's Beaten at Tenterden but Wins for 2's and 4's


The 1st XI travelled to Tenterden and on a very windy day were asked to bat.

Finn Baker, fresh from his century in the 2nd XI, continued his fine form with a top score of 61 as he and skipper Beau Couldrey (60) repaired the innings after an early batting collapse.

However after their demise, only Joel Couldrey (18) and Rory Low (15) offered any resistance and the Hayes innings ended on 198.

Hayes did take 2 quick wickets with Jacob Marlow and David Giles striking early but dropping Tenterden's former Premier League opening bat, proved crucial as he went on to make a match winning 86.

Stuart Eddicott with 2-39 impressed amongst the bowling but Tenterden cruised home with overs to spare.

The 2's hosted Tenterden's 2nd XI and in a game reduced to 42 overs, with the pitch looking a little wet, the toss went with the opposition who asked Hayes to bat.

With the ball moving around, the early Hayes batsmen struggled and with the score at 24-5 an early finish looked likely.

However the returning Tomas Gallagher and Mark Trevatt began to take the game to Tenterden.

Mark with an excellent 63 watched on as Tomas began to take the opposition bowling apart in tremendous style - 19 fours and 2 sixes laid the foundation for one of the best innings seem at Hayes for a long time and when the innings closed at 269-6, Tomas was 167 not out.

Tenterden were shell-shocked and their batting never recovered from a tight opening spell from Andrew Eddicott and Tom Davis - slow bowlers Ashley Quayle and Dammika Silva picking up 2 wickets each and Colin Couldrey finished the innings with 3 wickets as Tenterden's reply was limited to 146.

A crucial win for the 2nd XI as they look to cement their position in the Premier League after promotion last season.

The 3's hosted Saltwood on The Meadow and batting first were soon in trouble.

Ramiro Rajkumar with 29 was top scorer as Saltwood used the conditions to great effect and dismissed the home side for 131.

Despite MD Belal taking 2 wickets, the drying conditions saw the opposition coast home with the loss of 4 wickets.

The 4's visited our friends at Orpington and were invited to bat first.

Marc Wheatley (30) and Joe Lambourne (22) stabilised the innings after the loss of both openers and with Russell Frampton (20), Leo Webster (21) Luxan Sureshan (36) all chipping in, Hayes posted 165-8.

Opening the bowling, William Hadley with 2-33 and Leo 3-37, got Hayes off to a good start and with Luxan bowling a tight spell - 5 overs for 8 runs - Hayes put pressure on Orpington and aided by 3 run-outs, bowled them out for 152 and a good win.

Sunday saw the Women host Chelmsford, who batted first.

Gemma Murray with 3-46 bowled a lively opening spell and with Tansi Price, Hollie McCoy and Lottie Hayward each taking 2 wickets, Hayes tried their best to limit the opposition scoring - Chelmsford were bowled out for 267 in the final over of their innings.

Phoebe Wilkinson (54) and Jemima Ringham (78) took the fight to the opposition but their dismissals saw the run-rate fall and Hayes succumbed to 244 all out - a good response to a big total from the visitors.

The Legends hosted West Wickham Football Club, looking to gain revenge from the defeat during cricket week.

Games between the 2 clubs are always tight with many players playing football and cricket for both clubs - although the football clubs "closer", Luxan Sureshan, has yet to savour the delights of Corkscrew Hill!

Hayes batted first and with skipper Sean Thisleton (36), Peter Jones (44), Rory Low (37), Lewis Thisleton (38) and Tomas Gallagher (35) all batted well as Hayes closed on 236.

Matt King and Leo Webster with 4 wickets each leading the Wickham attack

David Tappenden with 2 quick wickets had the visitors in trouble but with Leo and young Joseph Cotton batting well, the Hayes attack was punished - Joe scoring a magnificent 110 and Leo 48.

Matt followed up his bowling with 32 pushed on but with his demise, runs became harder to score as the Hayes bowling improved but it was left to the afore mentioned Luxan and Joe Kallas to get the footballers over the line in a tight finish.
