The match was played on Sunday afternoon with a 2pm KO, between two teams Terry played for Welwyn Garden FC in his adult life verses Panshanger FC of whom Terry started played for as a young boy.
A call went out to players who played alongside or knew Terry and before long two teams were put together by Steve Kibler & Peter Monk.
The match played at Moneyhole Lane, and watched by some 200 who had come specially to watch the game in aid of a great goal scorer.
The game was fiercely contested despite most players being over 50/60. Welwyn Garden scored first to go 1-0 up through Neil Draper, then Panshanger FC took over with an equaliser from Lee Harvey, then up stepped Terry’s son Nick who scored two great goals to put Panshanger 3-1 up, Jimmy Robinson got a late consolation to make the final score 3-2.

After the match Terry’s wife Jenny presented Terry’s grandson Harley a large trophy to keep plus all the players received a trophy to keep of this special match.
Special mention to Steve Kibler for managing the Welwyn Garden FC team and helping to arrange the teams.
A huge thank you to all who played in the Welwyn Garden Old Boys FC v Panshanger FC Old Boys – what a day what a game, thank you to all, I’m sure someone would have been looking down and smiling.
The result didn’t matter as it was an occasion to remember a great man in Terry Hayes.
