Hughes Becomes First Summer Signing Hughes Becomes First Summer Signing

Curzon Ashton Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of winger Connor Hughes from Stalybridge Celtic.


Hughes, 25, has a wealth of experience in both the National League and National League North with previous spells at Hyde United, Halifax Town, Bradford Park Avenue and Worcester City. 


A product of Oldham Athletic’s youth academy, the Bolton-born winger went on to make eight appearances for the first team at Boundary Park before joining Hyde United. 


Hughes spent the majority of last season at Tameside rivals Stalybridge, where he scored ten goals and assisted 19 in 31 appearances for Celtic. 


On his first summer signing, John Flanagan said: “We’re delighted to secure Connor as our first signing for the coming season. He’s been a target of mine for a number of seasons but we’ve never been able to get the agreement over the line for one reason or another. 


“He will undoubtedly add more goals to the team, which had been a bit of a problem for us last season. He’s an exciting player, he’s got pace and determination and I’m sure the Nash faithful will be delighted when they see him perform next season!”


Everyone at Curzon would like to extend a warm welcome to Connor and wish him well with his time at the club!
