Andy Hughes

Hughesy leaves with our best wishes

Andy Hughes has left Leeds United to join Scunthorpe on an 18 month contract with the option of an additional year. The 33 year old utility man spent three and a half years at Elland Road and played a part in the 15 point deduction season. The move gives him an opportunity for regular games.

Having played in nearly every possible position for Leeds, during a time which has been one of the most difficult in the club’s history, Hughesy has always given his all to the cause. Even as first team opportunities have become limited for him, he’s still been an example of a model professional with a love for the game.

Though it took time for him to work his way into the hearts of fans, his bare chested celebrations last May has Leeds clinched promotion are firmly etched in the memory. Andy made 139 appearances for the club and though he was quick to admit he was by no means the most talented footballer his honest hard work was always appreciated by fans.

Despite his limited impact this season, Hughesy will certainly be missed. He heads to Glanford Park with all our best wishes and thanks for being a great servant to the club for the last few years.
