The Longridge lad, who turned 19 yesterday, blasted an unstoppable shot into the roof of the net past Wes Fotheringham on Saturday to help North End earn a point in a 1-1 draw against promotion-chasing Swindon Town at the County Ground.

The goal was all the sweeter for Hayhurst as it was witnessed by his proud mum and dad, who had travelled south to watch the game, and came at the end of the ground where all the Preston fans were gathered.
