A few of you might remember this guy playing for palace, think he used to play lb about 10 or do years ago.

Anyhow, I watched him play for Tranmere yesterday, he played in midfield and looked the best player on the pitch. Had time on the ball and a lovely pass on him.

Sadly he has just signed a contract to go back to Northern Ireland and play for Larne next season.

I recall the left-footed Hughes as a player who took free kicks over a wall and had good delivery as set-pieces.

I believe he started as a left-back but of course has played as a winger and a wing-back.I think Warnock saw him as a left-wing back and not a left-back or a winger.A player who could ghost in to score.

It was Peter Taylor who signed him for our club from Lincoln.

Sadly for Tranmere, Larne or us?

 


For years I thought the Purple Haze lyrics were " 'cuse me while I kiss this guy."

Tranmere I guess...And maybe slightly for me as they are my new local team!

Thanks for the info. Always interesting to see what old palace players are up to, and good to know that players who have played at a higher level are still enjoying the game at non-league level, rather than just drift out of football.

Being accused of being a Brighton supporter is the ultimate insult !

Don't even cast a glance at their ground on the rare occasions I drive past it on the A27.
