Hayling St. Andrews Football Club

Hayling St. Andrews football club has got off to a flying start this season! Nicola Terry the Clubs Communications Manager told me “The U12's and U13s teams have played fantastically as a whole and both have notched up wins in their respective divisions. We now have 11 teams playing in the leagues this year from U8's right up to U13's. The club continues to grow and goes from strength to strength.”

I asked Nicola whether all the age groups are prospering. She said “Yes they are. It's not just the older children where we have seen numbers rising; we now have over 20 in our 'minis' club too. Their ages range from School Reception Year to School Year 2. The children love the ethos of the club, which has a major focus on fun and ensures that every child gets to play a match.” I asked Nicola who decides when the ‘minis’ beginners start to play in the teams? She replied “The children decide when they are ready. If and when they want to, regardless of ability, they choose when they want to play in a team. Only then do we put them in.”

The message from the Club is: ‘If your child is interested in having a go, please bring them along on a Saturday morning. To Mengham Park, Harold Road (for the ‘minis’ up to School Year 5) or Hayling Park, West Town behind the Hayling Island Community Centre (for School Years 6-8). Alternatively contact HSAFC via their Facebook page HSAFC or email haylingstandrews@gmail.com . They would love to see you!’
