Windsor FC striker Barry Hayles nets England hat-trick in Seniors World Cup

Windsor FC forward Barry Hayles helped England book their place in the quarter-finals of the Seniors World Cup with hat-trick against Taiwan.

The 47-year-old netted a 50-minute hat-trick in the 4-2 win in England’s opening game of the tournament, leaving the Three Lions needing only a point against Hong Kong on Tuesday.

They secured that point with a 1-1 draw meaning they progress to the quarter-finals of a tournament they have won for the last three years and five times in total.

The competition was originally set up in 2004 to promote Thailand and its tourism after the 2004 tsunami.

It is now held in a different province of the country every year, with England being represented by Harrogate Veteran this year, although they also draft in former professionals for the tournament.

The quarter-final takes place on tomorrow (Thursday) with the semi-finals scheduled for Friday.
