No Wins on Saturday and a Tough Sunday too!


With the 1st XI not in action, the 2's had the short journey to Bexley.

Acting skipper Ashley Quayle won the toss and elected to bat, looking to build on last weeks excellent victory.

However the innings started to unravel quickly - openers Liam Buttery and Alfie Peck back in the hutch early - and with the middle order failing to fire too, Hayes were struggling to break 3 figures.

Dammika Silva, Joe Lambourne and Ashley Quayle put on some runs at the rear of the innings and Hayes closed on 110 all out in the 30th over - extra's, with 44 was top scorer - sadly not available next week.

The opening bowlers also struggled but an inspired switch to Dammika saw a fightback and with 3 wickets, Dammika threatened to turn the game around - Ashley Quayle with 1 and Alfie Peck with 2 saw Hayes go down with a fight, but the damage had been done with the batting.

The 3rd XI played in the majestic setting of Greenwich Park against Simba.

Bating was once again to prove the Hayes downfall, but not without the bowling putting on a fine show.

MD Belal and Maruf Hasan opened with tidy spells and with all the other bowlers chipping in too, Simba were restricted to 172-8 in their allotted 45 overs.

The batting struggled under some excellent bowling with only 3 batsmen - Muzzammal Salman, Rashal Islam and Shadihul Chowdhury reaching double figures - and succumbed to 76 all out in the the 25th over.

The 4's, having a rare start on the Main Square, hosted the 3rd XI from our friends at Bromley Common.

Inviting the opposition to bat, the Hayes bowling was soon struggling from the onslaught of the Common's batting Kevin Coates and Russell Frampton with a wicket each and 2 for Graeme Morrison were the Hayes only success as the The Common piled on the runs and finished on 275-4 in their 40 overs.

Needing a quick start Hayes reply got off to the worst possible start, losing a wicket to the opening ball of the innings - things didn't go too much better from there.

A resilient 33 from Jeremy Browne, 12 from Sean Thisleton, 18 from skipper Sam Millard, 34 from Graeme Morrison and 20* from Kevin Coates saw Hayes finish on 146-9.

Jon Clapshoe turned out for his first game in a few years and having prepared himself a belter of a batting track, managed to get run-out for a duck - unsure who the culprit was!

Sunday saw the legends with a free weekend and the Women played host to Brighton in a double-header.

A welcome return for former Hayes and England start, Kathryn Leng - although sadly playing for the opposition.

In the first game Hayes batted first and with 49 from Grace Jennings and 45 hit by Phoebe Wilkinson, Hayes finished on 115-4.

Brighton though found runs coming easy and knocked-off the runs in the 16th over - 2 wickets for Bhoomika Bhat being the highlight.

Kathryn Leng showed Hayes what they were missing with an imperious 76* off only 55 balls!

The 2nd game saw Brighton bat first and with Kathryn having a well earned rest, they scored 116-3.

The Hayes reply got off to a poor start and failed to recover with only Sydney Gorham, Gemma Murray, unsure and Kirripa Sai getting into double figures.

Early season and plenty to play for so hopefully a return to winning form next weekend!
