Barrington Edward "Barry" Hayles (born 17 April 1972) is a footballer who left Arlesey Town and rejoined Truro City in June 2014.[3] Previously with Conference South club Truro City as a striker, Willesden Hawkeye, Stevenage Borough, Bristol Rovers, Fulham, Sheffield United, Millwall, Plymouth Argyle, Leicester City, Cheltenham Town and St Albans City. Born in Lambeth, South London, Hayles was capped ten times by Jamaica at international level.

Career[edit]

Willesden Hawkeye, Stevenage Borough[edit]

After beginning his career with Willesden Hawkeye in the early 1990s, Hayles joined Isthmian League Premier Division side Stevenage Borough in February 1994, and impressed with the club in his first two seasons there.[4] He was part of the team which won the Football Conference in the 1995–96 season, however when the club were denied promotion to the Football League he became interested in a move away from Broadhall Way. In 1997, after continuing to impress with Stevenage Borough, he earned a move to Football League club Bristol Rovers.

Bristol Rovers[edit]

He impressed immediately, scoring on his debut against Plymouth Argyle with a first half header, and went on to top the Division Two scoring chart in his first season with 23 league goals as Rovers narrowly lost 4–3 on aggregate to Northampton Town in the playoffs. After beginning the 1998–99 season brightly, Hayles earned a £2 million pound move to Fulham.

Fulham[edit]

Hayles made over 200 appearances during his spell at Fulham. He was an integral part of the team that got promoted to the premiership for the first time in their history thus making him a firm fan favourite, scoring over 44 league goals and helping them to two promotions, thus reaching the premier league for the first time in their history. During his time at Fulham he was also called up for international duty for Jamaica. His days at Fulham are his regarded as his best playing days and are the most recognised.

Sheffield United[edit]

He was released on a free transfer to Sheffield United. During his short spell at Bramall Lane he made limited appearances in the red white and black shirt, and scored no goals but was only there a couple of months before he moved to Millwall for a nominal fee.

Millwall[edit]

He signed for Millwall aged 32, making over 50 league appearances and scoring 16 goals during his two-year spell at the club.

In the 2004/2005 season Barry notably scored in the local derby against West Ham and a hat trick away at Derby County helping Millwall to finish 10th

Plymouth Argyle[edit]

He was signed by Plymouth Argyle by new manager Ian Holloway for a fee of £100,000 prior to the 2006/2007 season, where he quickly established himself as a supporters' favourite after a hugely impressive start which earned him the nickname "The Ox in the box". He made his Plymouth Argyle debut against Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he also scored his first goal for his new club. He has a record of never being on a losing side when scoring for Argyle (14 goals, 7 wins and 7 draws) up to Saturday 28 April 2007. In the 2007–08 season, Hayles planned to leave Plymouth at the end of the season.[5]

Leicester City[edit]

On 31 December 2007, Hayles joined Leicester City on an emergency loan, which became permanent for a fee of £150,000 on 2 January,[5] signing an 18-month contract.[6] He made his debut in a 3–1 away defeat to Queens Park Rangers on 1 January,[7] and scored his first goal in a 2-0 win over Coventry City on 12 January,[8] Hayles scored his second and last goal for the club in a 1–0 win over Crystal Palace on 28 January.[9] Leicester was relegated from the Championship at the end of the season.[10]

On 12 August 2008, Hayles joined Cheltenham Town on loan for a month,[11] which was extended for a further month on 11 September.[12] He re-joined Cheltenham on loan for another month 27 November.[13] Hayles had a brief run in the Leicester first team upon his return, but failed to score a single goal. He nonetheless earned a medal on 24 April after the club finished the season as League One champions. Hayles was released at the end of his contract on 29 May.[14]

Cheltenham Town[edit]

On 13 July 2009, Hayles joined Cheltenham Town full-time. After making more than 50 league appearances for the Robins, he was released along with seven other players in May 2010.[15]

Truro City[edit]

Hayles signed with Southern League Premier Division club Truro City on 18 September 2010.[16][17] He made his debut three days later against Bideford in the Southern League Cup.[18] He scored his first goal for the club on 9 October 2010 in a 6–0 win against Halesowen Town as City went joint top of the Premier Division table.[19] Having scored two goals in his first month at Treyew Road,[20] Hayles extended his stay for another month.[21] "Barry has settled in fantastically well and has been a great boost for the squad and the club," said Lee Hodges, the manager of Truro City and a team-mate of the striker during his time at Plymouth Argyle. "I am absolutely delighted that he is staying" Hodges added.[22] Hayles scored a hat-trick in the top of the table clash between Salisbury City and Truro City on 22 February 2011 in a result that Truro City won 6–0, Salisbury's first home defeat of the 2010–11 Southern League Premier Division season.

St Albans City[edit]

Hayles agreed to join Southern League Premier Division side St Albans City[23] at the start of the 2012–13 season after leaving Truro City due to the club's financial problems. However, he returned to Truro on a non-contract basis on 14 December 2012, the same day that the club was sold to new owners.[24]

Arlesey Town[edit]

On 24 July 2013 Arlesey Town announced the signing of the former Stevenage & Fulham Striker Barry Hayles who had scored a brace in the first half of Arlesey's 6-0 friendly win over Langford the previous evening.

Truro City[edit]

August 2014 Barry Hayles Resigned for Truro City and opened his scoring in the secong game with a brace making it 2 goals in 2 games for the club

International[edit]

Hayles was called up to the Cayman Islands squad in 2000 for a pair of FIFA World Cup qualifying matches against Cuba. He took part in an unofficial 5–0 friendly defeat to American club side D.C. United, but he never played for them in a full international after FIFA ruled that he did not meet eligibility requirements.[25]

He has played at least ten times for Jamaica, making his debut against Cuba on 10 June 2001. Although Hayles never announced his retirement from international football, the national team had not called him up since 2005.

Whilst at Stevenage Borough, Hayles played twice for the England Non League Team at that time (now England C Team). The first game was in May 1995 at St Albans FC against the Scottish Highland Football League who beat the England Non League Team 3-2. The second game was again against the Scottish Highland Football League at Cove Rangers FC ( three mile south of Aberdeen) in May 1997. This time the England Non League Side won 5-0 with Hayles scoring two goals, and Lee Hughes of Kidderminster Harriers at that time, scoring another two goals.
