1st XI Return to Winning Ways - Development Side Champions!

St Lawrence were the visitors as the 1st XI look to bounce back from recent defeats.

Asked to bowl first, the team were soon amongst the wickets with David Giles taking the first 3 wickets with only 54 on the board.

Tom Davis then joined the party in ripping out the middle order with a 10 over spell of 4-34 and then Scott Gallagher picked up the final 2 wickets as Hayes dismissed the opposition for 114 in the 32nd Over.

With Hayes now in mid table, the youngsters were given the opportunity with the bat and Rory Low and Finn Baker put on 58 for the first wicket before Finn fell for 24.

Despite losing Joel Couldrey cheaply, Tom Gallagher hit a quick fire, unbeaten 30 from 30 balls as Hayes cruised home - Rory finishing on 42 not out.

Lordswood welcomed the 2nd XI and were invited to bat first.

Full details are yet to arrive but we do know that Hayes amassed 206-6 after having been asked to bat first.

Highlight of the innings being a century from skipper Sam Davis, which also takes him over 500 runs for the season - a tremendous effort!

Lordswood weren't up for the run chase and capitulated for 141 thus guaranteeing the 2;s Premier League cricket in 2020.

The 3's travelled to run away league leaders, Borstal, who opted to bat.

Shoyeb Rahman took 2 early wickets to give the side hopes of an upset, but steady batting by the home side saw them finish on 238-8 in their 45 overs.

MD Belal picking up 3 wickets and Rumel Choudhury taking 2 in a creditable bowling performance.

The quality of the Borstal bowling soon told as the Hayes batting struggled to put on a partnership and it was only Nazir Ahmed (17) and Rakib Hossain (18) who made double figures as the innings came to an end at 72.

Bromley were the visitors to The Meadow as the 4's fielded a young side featuring 5 of the Womens side.

Bowling first, Bromley got off to a strong start with a 135 run opening partnership, before Jeremy Browne struck.

Will Hadley took 2 wickets and with only Kayleigh Gallagher, Isabel Steet and Sujal Sai taking 1 wicket apiece, Bromley finished with a commanding 266-7.

Hayes put on a creditable response and skipper Marcus Browne (32) and Tansi Price (56) taking the opening partnership to 59.

Jeremy then added to his wicket with 32 and Will Hadley finished on 39* as the Hayes reply closed on 174-7.

Sunday saw the Development side claim the Division 1 title.

With the Beer Festival T10 tournament already arranged and claiming a number of key players, Hayes travelled to OD's with the title already won.

Inviting OD's to bat first, the home side were soon piling on the runs on a blisteringly hot day.

The Hayes bowlers toiled in the sun Luaxan Sureshan claiming 3 wickets and 2 for Liam Buttery, relinquishing the gloves for a change.

OD's amassed 219 in their 35 overs.

Hayes made a strong opening response but once Joshua Pratt (39) and Fin Baker (83) had been dismissed the rest of the batting struggled until Joseph Cotton (13*) offered some resistance. Hayes closed on 189-8 and celebrated winning the league.

Alan Cotton braved the heat to Umpire and special thanks to him - not often Hayes lose when he Umpires so the heat must have got to him!

Congratulations to injured skipper Mark Trevatt and Liam Buttery who skippered the last few games.
