£500 to help junior soccer

The parochial church council of St Matthew’s Church in Hayfield has awarded £500 to Hayfield Junior Football Club to help the club continue to grow.

Hayfield Junior FC chairman, Carl Dean, said: “The club was founded in the 1890s by the Church and played in the Manchester league along with City and United!

“120 years later the Church are still demonstrating their commitment to the young people of our village and we’re hugely grateful for their support.”
