A NEW six-a-side football competition is coming to Hayes.
Leisure Leagues are to open at Hayes and Yeading FC in Springfield Road this summer.

Director Tom Nash says it will have a positive effect on people’s physical and mental health.

“The four months of inactivity we have undergone as a nation has been tough for everyone,” he said.

“The effects on obesity are well known, but the mental health aspects are important too.

“People have been isolated, literally, away from their friends and family and the vital camaraderie we need has been lost.”

Now it is back on a Sunday evening. Mr Nash added: “The fact we can bring our unique brand of football to Hayes for the very first time is fantastic – especially at a time like this.”

The league will enable hundreds of players of all abilities to play.

Mr Nash said: “The wonderful thing about these leagues is they are a real community hub. Some of our players are top class, while others might not have played football for a long time, it brings everyone together.”
