(1962/63 - 1970/71)
Gerry O'Rourke, a Scot, joined Hayes in the summer of 1962 at the age of 20 from Windsor & Eton, where he was stationed in the Scots Guards. He was a clever ball-player, fast off the mark, with a lethal left foot shot. He had already won honours in the Berks & Bucks side and was selected for Middlesex with Hayes. He played only one season for Hayes, scoring 20 goals, before moving to Hendon in the summer of 1963, where he increased his chances of a Scottish cap. In one of his first games for Hendon he scored four goals in a 10-1 defeat of Dulwich Hamlet. From there he joined Wimbledon and turned professional with them in July 1964 in the Southern League.

In 1973-4 he played for Dulwich, Southall in 1975-6 and Epsom in 1976-7. Also captained Staines at some time and was still playing for Seaview on the Isle Of Wight aged 47.
