James Hughes at the Palace


December 17, 1910
James Hughes, a player who did some excellent work at half-back for Liverpool, is now one of the mainstays of the Crystal Palace team. He fills the centre half-back position, and is a great source of strength to the Southern League leaders.

Hughes assisted the Liverpool League team on several occasions, but generally appeared in the reserve ranks. He once had the misfortune to break his forearm when playing for Liverpool, but he did not know until after the game that the injury he had sustained was a fracture. He played throughout the contest. Hughes will oppose Everton in the cup-tie, all being well.
