Biography:
A promising young midfielder Terry Hayes, began his career at Linfield in the mid-1970s picking up Irish Youth Cup winner's medals with Linfield Rangers before being snapped up by David Pleat for Luton Town. Although Hayes spent just a year with the Hatters he was selected for the 1978 Under-21 match between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, despite being just shy of his nineteenth birthday.

On returning to Linfield Hayes established himself in one of the most dominant teams in Irish League history, picking up two Irish Cups and three Irish League titles amongst a host of other medals. Hayes' Linfield playing career was cut short due to a broken leg picked up during the 1983 Irish Cup Final replay with Glentoran, after a clash with Raymond Morrison.

Hayes joined the Linfield staff as physiotherapist, a role which he has held with Linfield since the mid-1980s - two seasons playing with Distillery in the early-90s aside - and also fulfilled the same role for the IFA, initially with the Northern Ireland Under-16 squad, and from 1994-2011 with the senior squad.
