Willows Lose Hughes To Blues

John Taylor, assistant manager of Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division outfit Walsham-le-Willows, has conceded Ollie Hughes will be a loss to the club after the striker agreed to join Leiston.

Hughes missed the Willows' FA Vase second qualifying round victory over Whitton United last Saturday to hold talks with Ryman League Premier Division side Leiston and discuss personal terms, before finally confirming the switch on Tuesday evening.

The 26-year-old bagged 23 goals in all competitions for the Summer Road outfit in the previous campaign and spent time on trial at Luton Town during pre-season.

Taylor said: "The bottom line is I probably think Ollie is better than this level and Leiston have got a bit more financial clout than we've got.

"Ollie is a quality centre forward. In the last 18 months he has turned himself into a top player, so of course we will miss him."
