A winger with an eye for goal, Hughes signed for the Shaymen in the summer of 2015 from Hyde United. He scored the last-gasp winner to take the FA Trophy quarter final against Gateshead to extra time and set up the rest of the trophy campaign. He had earlier in the season been loaned to neighbours Bradford Park Avenue before returning to the Shay and contributing with some other big goals.
Hughes was born in Bolton and has played for Oldham Athletic. He was used largely as an impact substitute last season but the 23-year-old will hope to establish himself more this term.
