Week 11 – Barbosa on Fire!

Hayes CC Latest News

Women March on As 2's Win Too

An abridged version due to holidays but some great performances in Week 11.

Lordswood, contenders to replace Hayes as Kent League Champions were the visitors on Saturday and were invited to bat first.

Despite early wickets for both Stuart Eddicott and Will MacVicar, Lordswood showed their class as the middle order performed well on a tough afternoon for the Hayes bowlers – Stuart & Will bowled well but the star was Andrew Eddicott with 4-47 in 9 overs. Although wickets fell steadily the visitors run-rate was helped by a late flurry and Hayes were left to chase 270.

Liam Buttery fell early and with Alex Blake and Will MacVicar also falling quickly, the innings was soon in trouble.

Rory Low with a superb 82 did his best to regain the momentum, but with partners running out, it was only 20 from Tom Gallagher that offered any help to Rory and Hayes were bowled out for 170 in the 42nd over – a chastening defeat but a home game next week to enable the boys to bounce back.

The 2’s visited High Halstow and Hayes batted first.

A tremendous innings from Miguel Barbosa – 112 in 121 balls – saw Hayes post 235 in their 50 overs – Liam Vallois also chipping in with 30.Migs scoring his first century for the club and set the scene for a comprehensive win.

The bowlers all bowling well and with Luxan Sureshan on fire – 4-14 in 8 overs – Hayes bowled the home side out for 154.

The 2’s now top the league with other results going there way!

The 3’s hosted Chislehurst & West Kent, who were invited to bat first.  Jacob Marlow with 2-13 in 7, Ted Wilkie 2-11 in 7 and Ben Manners 2-8 in 3, were the pick of a good bowling performance as the visitors were restricted to 146 all out.

Despite a terrific 86 from skipper Leo Webster the batting failed – only Jesse Rowson  (16) and Colin Couldrey (11) got into double figures.  Leo’s innings nearly getting Hayes home but he was 9th out with 10 needed so Hayes lose a close one!

No game for the 4th XI, who are back in action this weekend.

Sunday saw the Women triumph over Tunbridge Wells at Hayes – Jessica Matthews the star of the bowling with 5-20 in her 8 overs.  Zoe Hainsworth also picked up 3 wickets as the visitors were dismissed for 118.

Chelsey Rowson (45) and Zeena Bilal (31) ensured no slip-ups as Hayes won by 6 wickets.

No such luck for the Development side who succumbed to Bromley – opting to bat first, Joe Bradshaw (52), Liam Buttery and Joe Cotton (both with 37) batted well as Hayes totalled 188-5 in their 40 overs.

The bowlers were soon under pressure and Bromley knocked off the runs in the 32nd over for a 6-wicket win.

The Women and the 2nd XI are having strong seasons and both in chance with winning their respective leagues as we start to get to the business end of the season.
