!'s lose in Wet Weekend


Bromley hosted the 1st XI and with heavy rain falling overnight it was a race to get the game on but start on time it did - the toss becoming crucial and sadly for Hayes, it was lost and we were asked to bat first.

With the ball moving around and more rain forecast the conditions were difficult and Hayes found themselves at 5/2 when the rains came.

A delay of over an hour before Hayes batted again and it was James Bamber (36) and Aaron Yabsley (55) who began to salvage the innings.

Joel Couldrey (21) Mark Trevatt (25) and Stuart Eddicott (32) all chipped in as conditions became easier and the Hayes innings closed on 215 all out.

Bromley got off to a fast start knowing that they would have to score the required runs in 36 overs - but with 2 former test players in their side, they proved that they are true title contenders by only taking 34 overs to reach the required runs.

The 2's and 3's were washed out and the 4's made the short trip to Bromley Common.

Bowling first, Leo Webster (3/13) and William Hadley (3/14) were soon amongst the wickets and with Graeme Morrison also picking up 2 wickets, The Common were bowled out for 122.

However on a difficult day for the batsmen, only Sam Millard with 35 offered any real resistance as Hayes succumbed for 116 and a 6 run defeat.

Sunday saw the Development side travel to Bexley and bat first.

Liam Buttery (43) Leo Webster (29) and Arnav Barry (25) amongst the runs as Hayes posted 162 all out.

Finlay Baker with 3/33 was the pick of the Hayes bowling as Bexley got home with 2 overs to spare.

The Women travelled to Brighton and were delighted to learn the former Hayes star and latterly nemesis, Kathryn Leng, was not on the home team sheet!

Phoebe Wilkinson (31) Jemima Ringham (49) and skipper Tansi Price (82) all scored runs as Hayes amassed 235 in their 40 overs.

Two wickets each for Bhoomika Bhat and Isabel Steet made sure that the home side never looked like getting the runs and Hayes bowled them out for 98.

After a tough start the women are on a roll and have now moved up the table with some convincing wins.
