Monday, 3 March 2014
It was a splendid morning on Saturday for our Under 9 team. Following 2-0 and 5-4 victories over Mountfield Rovers Jets with goals from Will Shaw, Adam Hooper, Charlie Southern and James Ramsay, the team were presented with a cheque for £2,740 by Bloor Homes.
The extremely generous donation was made as the club have allowed Bloor Homes to use our car park during the development at Mainwaring Gardens. This has allowed the Bloor's workforce to carry out the build with minimal inconvenience for our neighbours on Swallow House Lane.
The donation will be used for further groundwork on Bank Vale this summer.

Alti Swifts Girls U14’s 2 - Hayfield Girls U14’s 4
Hayfield travelled to Altrincham this week and came away with a well earned 4-2 League victory. In their first attack, Georgia Bull found Alice Rayson on the right wing and a strong run ended with her cutting in and poking the ball past the Swifts keeper. Hayfield continued to attack and Martine Grocott found Sophie Rayson whose shot came back off the underside of the bar – where was the goal-line technology? The two soon made amends when Sophie Rayson pulled the ball back across goal from the right for man-of-the-match Martine Grocott to tap into an empty net – half time 2-0. The second half started with Hayfield having two corners which caused problems in the Swifts penalty area. Amy Vandermotten then found herself out on the right wing and her strong cross could only be parried by the Swifts keeper for Megan Pritchard to tuck home. The Swifts then rallied with two goals setting a frantic final 10 minutes. The decisive break came when Sophie Rayson found twin sister Alice who duly beat the keeper with a fine shot into the top corner for a final 4-2 scoreline. Martha Kelly, Mel Kennedy and Megan Woods all had fine games in the Hayfield defence.

Hayfield Girls U14s 2 - 1 Alti Chicks U14s
Hayfield started their 2013-14 season in the South Manchester Girls Football League and soon found themselves a goal down to last season champions Alti Chicks.
After a strong run and cross from the right wing was converted at the far post. Hayfield seemed nervous in the early stages and struggled to put passes together. A half time team talk saw a change in fortunes and straight from the break Alice Rayson was foiled by the keeper when in a one on one situation and Amy Vandermotten shooting just wide from a free-kick. A poor clearance from the Chicks keeper saw Katy Brookes advance goalwards, holding off the centre-half, before equalising with a low shot into the corner of the net.
Hayfield stepped up the pace and from a Megan Pritchard throw-in, Georgia Bull cut in from the right before hitting a 25 yard left-foot shoot past a bemused keeper.
It was then the Chicks turn to pressure in search of an equaliser but centre-backs Martha Kelly and Mel Kennedy held firm along with full-backs Martine Grocott and Quinn Arris-Sutton whilst new keeper Frankie Hodges cleared everything thrown at her.
A 2-1 win was most welcomed and signalled the standard of football Hayfield will meet this season.

Once again we'll be supporting the annual Country Show and Sheep Dog Trials at Spray House Farm in Little Hayfield.
Beat the Goalie
Beat the goalie is your chance to become a football legend. On each day of the show we'll be running a penalty shoot-out. Score two out of three and you're into the sudden death final. Win that and as well as fame and glory you'll win a tenner! Great fun for all the family.
Guess The Weight
Once again we're running our Guess the Weight competition together with New Mills Junior FC. David Mellor has kindly donated a lorry load of straw. All you have to do is guess the weight of the lorry's load. The closest guess will win £100. Definitely worth a go.
On Sunday at 4:00pm the straw will be auctioned. All proceeds to go jointly to the two football clubs.
We'd like to thank David, once again, for his extraordinary generosity.
