Chicks Feel Bull's Left Boot

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.

Join us at Hayfield Country Show

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.
