FA Trophy Saturday 13th November, 2021

The fixture comes a week after Worthing maintained their five-point lead at the top of the table with a 2-1 victory over Potters Bar Town, thanks to first half goals from Jesse Starkey and Ollie Pearce.

Reds keeper Harrison Male was called into action to save a penalty early in the second half, which proved vital when Potters Bar halved their deficit.

The match was the seventh time the Crucial Environmental Stadium crowd clocked up over 1,000 spectators, with 1,104 being the official attendance.

Meanwhile, hosts Hayes & Yeading have had an equally as impressive start to their season in the Southern League Premier South, currently unbeaten in second place with five games-in-hand over league leaders Farnborough.

They also reached the first round of the FA Cup earlier this month, narrowly losing 1-0 to EFL League Two side Sutton United in front of a crowd of 1,200 at the SkyEx Stadium.

Recent meetings

Despite playing in different leagues across the step 7 pyramid, the two sides met fairly recently in an FA Cup second qualifying round in the 2016-17 season:

Goals from Omar Buigiel and Harvey Sparks earned Worthing a 2-0 win against a 10-man Hayes & Yeading side.

Directions 

By Car – “Take Junction 3 (Heston, Hounslow, Southall & Hayes). Head northbound towards Hayes along the A312 The Parkway (Hayes By-Pass). Go over the first roundabout (Tesco’s is off to the right) and over the flyover. Ignore the next junction signposted to Hayes and take the second signposted Hayes, Uxbridge & Southall. At the end of the sliproad is the Ossie Garvin roundabout. Take the third exit towards Southall. Head eastbound along the (A4020) Uxbridge Road signposted to Southall. Get into the far right hand lane as soon as you can to turn right into Springfield Road at the next set of traffic lights (There is a retail development with a Wickes on the corner of Springfield Road). Follow the road, past ‘Goals’ on your right. The road bears left into Beaconsfield Road, and about 100 yards on your right is the entrance to the ground.”

By Public Transport – “Hayes & Harlington Rail Station is 15 minutes from Paddington and easily reached from the West. From here it is best to take a 5-10 minute cab ride to the ground as it is a good 30 minutes plus walk, through Hayes Town up Coldharbour Lane and onto the Uxbridge Road where you can pick up directions above. There is a cab firm just by the station.

We do not suggest you try Southall station as the Beaconsfield Road you can see on most maps near Southall Station does not connect with the Beaconsfield Road the ground is on, it is divided by the canal.

Alternatively take the tube to Uxbridge Underground station (Metropolitan or Piccadilly lines) and at the bus station adjoining, hop on a bus towards Shepherd’s Bush and alight at Springfield Road. It is 7-8 minute walk to the ground from here.”
