About John Hughes:
“He is a half-back of the sound type, reliable rather than brilliant, and his head work is especially noticeable. In better class company his talents should develop, more particularly in the direction of drawing the opposition before placing to his forwards. He stands 5ft. 9in., and weighs 11st. 12lb., and considering the limited character of the chances he has had of making headway, must be said to have fared exceedingly creditably in the football world.”
