It's a Sign...!

Our new sign has just been installed at Bank Vale and it looks wonderful. Thank you, as ever, to Jane for organising this and also to Andy at the PC for making sure we weren’t going to upset anyone by putting it there!

Also, to everyone who has helped raise money these last few weeks and in particular to Bob Heaps who has managed to persuade his employer, HSBC, to invest £1000 in us.

To Wembley and Back!

To help ease Coronavirus boredom and to raise some much needed funds for our clubhouse project we're challenging all teams and all players to help us complete a run to Wembley and back (560Km / 350 miles).

Essentially it's a sponsored run (or walk if you prefer) and there are prizes for:

  • First Prize (for the player raising the most sponsorship)
    Free membership (i.e. no subs) for the 20/21 season

  • Runners-up Prizes (for the player in each team running the furthest)
    An official Hayfield FC scarf + an Adidas football

The challenge runs for a month from 15th June until 15th July and we want to track everyone's progress using the challenge on the Nike Run Club app.

For details of how to get signed up just download our sponsorship form here.

Suspension of all Grassroots Football

Sadly, but inevitably, all grassroots football has been suspended by the Football Association. All leagues that we participate in have suspended fixtures, all training has ceased and as such Hayfield Football & Community Sports Club is now in hibernation.

At this time we aren't certain if league fixtures will be able to resume. We will keep all members posted here and on social media channels when anything changes.

Unfortunately this also means that our Quiz and Curry Night planned for the 27th March is also postponed. We're hoping to re-arrange that for September and all tickets sold will be valid for the re-arranged event. If you have a ticket and would like a refund please contact the club.

However, it's not all doom and gloom...

Hayfield FC v Neil Baldwin FC

A huge thank you to everyone who came to see our adult team take on Neil Baldwin FC at Silverlands this weekend. Thanks to Eric and Joe for manning the turnstile and flogging scarves. To Pete C and Pete L and all the lads who played. To Neil Baldwin (Nello) and his team for travelling over from Stoke and an especially big thank you to Dave Brownsword who organised the whole thing.

The event was sponsored by Jeremy Unsworth, Thorneycroft Solicitors and Egerton’s and they’ve helped us raise close to a thousand pounds to be shared between Hayfield FC and the Macari Foundation.

Bob Heaps / HSBC

Many of you will know Bob as the coach of our Under 9s. Bob works for HSBC, they have a yearly Pound for Pound scheme which supports charitable fundraising and volunteering activities by donating a matching amount to your charity. Bob in his coaching role, submitted his hours he volunteered throughout 2019 and from that HSBC have very kindly donated £1,000 to the Club. Hopefully this can become a yearly donation that will really help towards the fundraising for the new clubhouse and pitches at Bank Vale.

Hayfield Country Show and Sheepdog Trials

Last week the Club received £1,500 from the Hayfield show committee to help us with our clubhouse planning application. I’ve attached some pictures of what we’re hoping for! An enormous thank you to the show’s committee who have been hugely supportive of the club since the very beginning.

All of the work on our planning application has been carried out, without charge, by John McCall. A big thank you to John.
