Trevatt the Hero as 1st XI Bounce Back and 2's set New Record

A visit to St Lawrence awaited the 1st XI as they looked to establish their position at the top end of league table.

Acting skipper James Bamber called wrong and was invited to bowl first.

A quick wicket for Stuart Eddicott (2-27) was all the side had to show from the opening spell as the St Lawrence batsmen looked to build a good total.

Tom Davis (2-135) and Grant Sheen (1-30) were the change bowlers and they both managed to slow the run-rate down with tidy 10 over spells.

With extra's contributing 23 runs and the tail wagging, it was left to Scott Gallagher (3-56) to ensure the St Lawrence total would remain within reach, finishing on 254-8.

Looking for a fast start, Hayes lost Grant for a duck, however with Aaron Yabsley finding form and hitting a season best 73, the loss of the early wicket was soon forgotten.

James Bamber hit a fine 28 but with a couple of quick middle order wickets the match swung back in the hosts favour.

However with Liam Buttery (48) and Mark Trevatt pushing the score along, Hayes were left with 31 to score from the last 3 overs.

Liam then fell, bringing Scott to the wicket and this was the cue for Mark to open up - hitting 2 magnificent maximums to bring the score within reach.

A tense final over saw Scott run for 3 but with the next ball Mark, hit the winning runs to start the party!

With Bromley getting beat, the gap at the top is only 2 points.

The 2nd XI hosted Lordswood, who batted first.

The returning Jayson Thompson bowled a lively spell taking 2-38 in his 10 overs and with opening partner Dammika Silva only conceding a miserly 17 runs in his 10 overs, Lordswood were held back.

Ashley Quayle and Alfie Peck then took 3 wickets a piece as the visitors middle order proved no match for their guile - with William Hadley also picking up a wicket, Lordswood were dismissed for 127 and Hayes took tea looking to record a smooth victory.

There must have something in the tea, as it seemed to motivate the Lordswood opening bowling as well as cause the Hayes batsmen to play some poor shots.

With skipper Sam Davis being dropped in the first over the score moved to 7-0 before Sam, his thumb injured after being hit when dropped, succumbed for 3.

Sadly the next 6 batsmen scored 2 runs between them as Hayes collapsed to 12-8.

With the record books being scoured, Ashley and Dammika showed resilience as they pushed the score on to 35, however with both falling at that score, `Hayes were bowled out for 35 - breaking the unwanted record held by the 1988 side, who were 39 all out against Blackheath.

The Premier League is an unforgiving environment and the 2's have had a couple of excellent victories and will look to bounce back quickly from the defeat.

The 3's, also playing in the Premier League of the Kent Regional League, were up against undefeated Borstal on The Meadow.

Batting first both openers were dismissed for ducks before Rumel Chowdhury (24) and Muzzammal Salman (26) moved the score on to 64.

However with their dismissal it was only Mamun Rahmn with 26 that saw Hayes finish with a score of 125.

Borstal proved their strength wasn't only their bowling as the batsmen made light work of knocking off the required runs with the loss of only 1 wicket - Shoyeb Rahman (1-13) being the wicket taker.

The 4's travelled to Chislehurst to take on Bromley and bowled first.

Father and Daughter, Isabel and Paul Steet, were the wicket takers as Isabel took 2-30 but was upstaged by Father Paul who took 4-53. Lewis Knox with 2-27 ensured it wasn't just a Steet show!

Bromley racked up 244-9 in their allotted overs.

The Hayes reply got off to a steady start with Peter Jones (22), Jeremy Browne (20) and Joe Lambourne (50) amongst the runs.

However with their demise, Russell Frampton with 15 was the only other bat to get into double figures as Hayes finished on 147-9 in their 40 overs.

Sunday saw the Women host Canterbury in a 45 over game and batted first.

Phoebe Wilkinson (68),skipper Tansi Price (39) and Sydney Goram (50*) proved to be the mainstays as Hayes scored a competitive 221-8 in their overs.

Only 2 of the Canterbury bats got starts and we will update the Hayes bowling when the records are updated, however Canterbury were bowled out for 200 and a great win for the side.

The Development side hosted Linden Park, who batted first.

Jacob Marlow, William Hadley and Tom Davis were soon amongst the wickets, all three taking 2 wickets each as only 2 batsmen got into double figures.

Tom Tyne proved to be the pick of the bowling with 3 wickets in a brief 16 ball spell as Linden were cleaned out for 94 inside 19 overs.

An undefeated 37 from Alfie Peck ensured there would be no hiccups in reaching the total required and Rory Low (33) and Marc Wheatley with 10 were the other Hayes bats to contribute.

An undefeated start to the Development side in this seasons competition.

Highlight of the weekend has to be the performance of both the Mens and Womens 1st XI's who both recorded great wins.
