FIrst XI Beat Folkestone to Set-Up Last Weekend Thriller

Folkestone made the long journey to Hayes in a vital match - defeat would almost certainly relegate the losers.

Hayes won the toss and elected to bat.

Losing Lewis Hickford (1) with the score on 5 was a blow but this brought in-form Jamie Askew (89) to the crease and along with Grant Sheen (30), they batted well through some tight bowling and took the score to 77 before Grant fell.

Beau Couldrey (37) and David Giles (38) then helped build on the good start and with Connor Byrne (27) and Tomas Gallagher (17*) scoring late runs, Hayes finished on a competitive 263 - 6.

Folkestone however weren't going to roll-over and made a positive start, getting to 72 before the first wicket fell.

At 163 - 2, the Hayes total looked under threat but then a devastating spell from Stuart Eddicott (9-3-36-4) saw the Folkestone batting start to fall - David Giles (6.4-0-39-2) and Beau Couldrey (9-0-54-1) taking the final wickets and Hayes gaining 18 valuable points.

With Gore Court also winning, Hayes head to Gore Court for the final game of the season with the winners staying up!

The 2's travelled to Catford Cyphers and were asked to bowl - a challenge Hayes seemed to enjoy as they dismissed the home side for 124!

Tom Davis
(15-5-26-5) bowled a great spell - taking his season total to 32 Kent League wickets. Tom was ably supported by Jayson Thompson (12-6-19-3) and Graeme Morrison (4.4-0-17-2).

Hayes made light work of taking the points with Martin Pratt (66*) and Liam Buttery (42*) ensuring a 9 wicket win.

Martin now has over 650 runs this season - his highest total in a long and distinguished career with Hayes

The 3's played their penultimate game of the season, hosting HSBC at The Meadow.

Winning the toss,HSBC elected to bat and a patient innings of 162-8 never really looked enough. Skipper Jewel (10-4-27-4) was the pick of the bowling.

In reply Soiod Milon Huda (29), Shakil Bhuiyan (36), Nohan Behzadnia (47*) and Delrick Adikari (23*) saw Hayes comfortable home.

The 3's now look to have cemented 2nd place in the table and a great season for Jewel and the team.

The 4's made the wasted journey to Horton Kirby who didn't have the decency to inform anyone that they were conceding the match!

A creditable 5th place finish to the season for the 4's - a young side ably marshalled by skipper Sam Millard.

Sunday saw the Development side travel to league leaders Old Wilsonians.

OW's batted first and amasses 191 - 6 in their 40 overs. 2 wickets for Finnan Bryan (7-1-24-2) and Finlay Baker(8-3-30-2) being the Hayes highlights.

The Hayes reply was held together by a superb 71 from Josh Pratt, but with runs hard to come by, the innings concluded on 168-8 and a 23 run defeat.

Skipper Scott Gallagher with 25 being the only other Hayes bat to score over 20.

The Legends hosted wandering side The Waggoners and in a 35 over match, the opposition scored 221 - 5 with George Fisher (4-0-19-2) the pick of the Hayes attack.

Skipper Peter Jones ensured all 8 Hayes outfield players bowled!

Peter also led the Hayes reply with 60 and with Alfie Peck not out on 45, the Hayes reply mustered 149 - 5. Sean Thisleton with 25 also troubling the scorers.

A good weekend for the Club and an exciting final day of the league season awaits on Saturday!
