Drogheda United are delighted to announce that Mark Hughes has signed a new deal with the club.
The midfielder is currently in his second spell with the club and has made 66 appearances to date.
Hughes has been training with Kevin Doherty’s side through pre-season after missing a large portion of 2021 through injury.
“There certainly wasn’t a decision to be on Sparky as a player but we just wanted to get him a good couple of weeks training first. He’s come through that with flying colours. He’s flying and back stronger than ever,” Doherty explained.
“I’m delighted he’s signed. He’s a massive player for us and he was so unfortunate last year with the way it worked out. In the Derry game where he played 88 minutes or so, he was the best player on the pitch.
“He’s a great lad and an excellent player who is very comfortable in a couple of positions,” Doherty said.
