Harry Hayes was the son of English immigrants who had travelled over to Argentina on a coal ship. He was born in the Arroyito district of Rosario in 1891. As a child he attended games at the "Central Argentine Railway Athletic Club" (Rosario Central) and dreamed of becoming a footballer.[1]

In 1906 he played a game for Gimnasia y Esgrima de Rosario against Newell's Old Boys, for the benefit of Rosario Central. In 1907 he made his debut for Central, the club he would play for until his retirement in 1926.

During his time with Rosario Central the club won ten local leagues and five national cups.

In 1910 Hayes made his debut for Argentina, in the unofficial South American Championship in 1910[2] he went on to play 21 games for his country, scoring 8 goals. He was part of the Argentina squad for the Copa América in 1916.[3]

Hayes' brother Ennis also played for Rosario Central and Argentina, and his son Enrique Ricardo (also commonly called Harry) played for Rosario Central in the 1930s and 40s.
