A.F.C. Hayes is a non-league English football club based in Hayes, and founded in 1974. The club was known until 2007 as Brook House F.C. and currently plays in the Southern League Division One South and West.


Brook House was formed in 1974 as a pub team for the pub of the same name and first played in the Hayes and District Sunday League Division 7. In 1982 another local team, Grange FC, relocated to Brook House's recently acquired Park Farm ground and were reborn as the Brook House FC Saturday team, playing in the South West Middlesex League.

By 1984 the first team became founder members of the Middlesex County Football League where they remained until 1988 when they joined the London Spartan League, stepping up to the Premier Division the following year. In 1992 floodlights were erected at Park Farm for the first time and officially opened with a friendly against Chelsea, for whom former Brook House player Neil Shipperley scored a hat-trick in a 5-1 win. Shipperley's father Dave had also managed Brook during the 1990s.

In 2004 the club were promoted to the Isthmian League Division Two, where they achieved two third-place finishes before league restructuring saw them moved into the Southern League in 2006. In 2007 the club changed its name to A.F.C. Hayes.
