1's Winning Run Ends but Wins for 3's, Women and Development

The 1st XI made the trip to Folkestone looking to extend their winning run.

Winning the toss, acting skipper James Bamber had not hesitation in batting first. Grant Sheen (19) and Aaron Yabsley (17) put on 26 for the first wicket and 26 from James saw Hayes push on but it was Joel Couldrey and Mark Trevatt who proved the mainstays of the Hayes innings.

Joel with an undefeated and 53 from Mark saw Hayes once again bat past the 200 mark and post a competitive 234-9 in their 50 overs.

However the Folkestone batting proved to be up for the challenge and despite falling to 35-3 after an excellent opening spell from Stuart Eddicott (3-36), they recovered well and cruised home for a 5 wicket victory with 4 overs remaining.

An excellent stat to the season for the 1st XI and they will be looking to bounce back next week at St Lawrence.

The 2nd XI hosted Tunbridge Wells who elected to bat on winning the toss.

The Tunbridge Wells batsmen had a day to remember as they made light of the Hayes bowling threat amassing a huge total of 323-7 in 50 overs - Dammika Silva with 3 wickets being the pick of the bowling although a tight spell from Ashley Quayle deserves a mention.

Needing to get off to a fast start, a 44 partnership between Alfie Peck and Sam Davis was a good start, but with Alfie out for 15 the next 2 wickets fell without troubling the scorers and Hayes were soon in trouble.

A fluent 51 from debutant Saihan Azim briefly offered some resistance - as did 52 from Sam, but with the fall of their wickets it was only 16 from Dammika that offered any further resistance as Hayes crashed to 168 all out.

The 3rd XI have found promotion to the Regional League Premiership hard going anf hosted Ash on The Meadow.

Batting first, a quick fire 28 from Tanvir Ahamed got the side of to a good start and with skipper Jewel scoring 51 the foundations for a good score were laid.

Muzzammal Salman with 73 from 35 balls ensured Hayes passed the 200 mark and finished with 244 in their 45 overs.

An excellent opening spell from Jewel - 3-17 - got Hayes off to a great start and with Tanvir Ahamed also taking 3 wickets, the Ash innings finished on 152 and a comprehensive victory for Hayes.

The 4's travelled to Roan and Lambethans and on a tricky looking wicket were asked to bat first.

With Marcus Browne being run out for a duck the stage was set for a calamitous batting performance - at 12-8 the record books were being thumbed through.

However a rear-guard from Russel Frampton (20) and an undefeated 12 from Graeme Morrison saw some respectability restored as Hayes were bowled out for 45.

Russel and Izzie Steet took a wicket each as Roan's coasted home to a 8 wicket victory.

Sunday saw the Women host Harold Wood in the last of the T20 double-headers that have been played in the first half of the Women's season.

In the first game Hayes batted first and 37 form skipper Tansi Price, supported by Grace Jennings (12) and Sydney Goram (15), saw Hayes close on 96-6.

2 wickets and tight bowling form Sydney saw the match go into the final over with a tight finish and Hayes getting home by 1 run!

In the second game, Harold Wood batted first and wickets for Sydney and Ryana Macdonald-Gay saw the opposition restricted to 91 in a game reduced to 16 overs per side.

Hero of the first game, Tansi, was run out for 5 so it was left to Grace Jennings with 31, Ryanna 22 not out and Phoebe Wilkinson (10) to get Hayes home with one ball to spare!

Two good wins for the Women and now onto the next half of the season.

The Development side made the journey across Hayes to Old Wilsonians, who batted first.

A tight opening spell from Connor Byrne and Jacob Marlow set the scene for a good bowling performance - Alfie Peck with 2-12, Mark Trevatt 3-22 and Sam Millard 1-12, bring the wicket takers as OW's were restricted to 125 in 35 overs.

Rory Low (22), Simon Flinn (36) and Mark (30*) got Hayes to the cusp of victory, which was finished off by 2 big sixes for Connor!

2 wins from 2 games and a great start to the side.

So wins for the 3's and the Sunday sides and the first defeat of the season for the 1st XI - another exciting weekend at the club with plenty to look forward to.
