First Team Winning Run Continues - 2's and Development Win Tight Games

Tenterden, relegated after 3 seasons in the Premier League, provided the opposition for Hayes on Saturday.

Looking to build on the great start to the season, skipper Beau Couldrey was confident in the run-up ti the game - even more so following the comprehensive defeat of Bromley in the T20 Cup.

Tenterden won the toss and invited Hayes to bat on a day with showers forecast.

Aaron Yabsley and Grant Sheen opened the innings and a quick-fire 12 from Aaron started the innings positively and his dismissal brought Liam Buttery to the crease.

Liam and Grant put on 71 for the 2nd wicket and then Stuart Eddicott, the T20 hero, nailed a brilliant 32 - 4 sixes and 2 fours - to add impetus to the innings.

Beau with 30 and Joel Couldrey with 21* supported Liam, who eventually fell for 65.

Hayes finished on a competitive 238-6 in their 50 overs.

A wicket first ball for David Giles saw the best possible start for Hayes - Dave bowled a magnificent 8 over spell of 2-11.

Tenterden's overseas looked dangerous but when he fell for 72 - a stumping by Liam off the bowling of Scott Gallagher (2-44) - the Tenterden innings slowed down and with Grant taking 2-36, Hayes were on top and the Tenterden innings closed on 176-9 and a comprehensive win for Hayes.

The 2's made the journey to Tenterden, looking to bounce back from last weeks close run defeat to Sevenoaks Vine.

With rain having seeped under the covers, the hosts chose to prepare a new wicket for the game and the toss looked crucial as the wicket was still damp but a drying wind was around.

Skipper Sam called wrong though and Hayes were invited to bat first.

As predicted, batting was difficult and only Alfie Peck with 13, managed to get into double figures in the top order.

However Mark Trevatt (20), Leo Webster (22), Dammika Silva (10) and an excellent 39 from Ashley Quayle saw Hayes out together 165.

An early breakthrough by Andy Eddicott got the team off to a good start but steady batting by Tenterden got them off to a good start.

Tom Davis (3-32) and Ashley (2-20) then got amongst the middle order batting and it was left to Alfie (3-27) to bowl Hayes to an unlikely but well deserved, 10 run victory.

The 3rd XI travelled to Saltwood and were also invited to bat.

Wickets fell quickly but Shahidul Chowdhury with 44, Maksud Ahmed 42 and an undefeated 60 from Aplu Choudhury pushed Hayes to 193-8 at the close of their 45 overs.

A tight 10 over spell from MD Belal 10 overs, 1-16, saw Hayes get off to a bright start but with runs coming from the other end, a tight finish looked likely.

Saltwood managed to get home from the penultimate ball of the match - a close game sadly going against Hayes.

The 4's entertained Orpington 3d XI on The Meadow, and once again Hayes were invited to bat first - clearly the skippers need to work on their toss technique!

Jeremy Browne 30, and Simon Flinn 20, saw Hayes get off to a positive start but with oneof the opposition bowlers having a great day and claiming 7 wickets, Hayes found runs hard to come by,

An undefeated 31 from skipper Sam Millard applied some gloss to the Hayes score but 142 all out looked a few runs short.

So it proved to be as Orpington recovered from William Hadleys early wicket and coasted home with the loss of 5 wickets with 3 overs to spare.

2 wickets each for Graeme Morrison and Russel Frampton giving Hayes brief hope but sadly not enough.

Sunday saw the seasonal debut for the Development side against OD Cuaco.

OD won the toss and chose to bat first in the new 35 over format.

The highlight of the Hayes bowling was Connor Byrne with 2-16 and Scott Gallagher 2-28, but the OD's batting rallied strong and a total of 191 looked above par.

Hayes got off to a steady start with Liam Buttery (23), Marc Wheatley (12) and skipper Mark Trevatt (48) and opener Rory Low going steadily along.

The middle order however crumbled - 3 wickets falling with the score in the 150's and then a further disaster with 4 wickets falling at 176.

William Hadley joined the still-in opener Rory (pictured) and into the last over, 13 were needed
and OD's only needed 1 wicket.

With 2 singles off the first 2 balls, 11 were needed from 4 and this was Rory's cue to open up - a great 6 followed by a 4 and a single saw Hayes record a great opening win in this season's campaign.[/b]
