(13th May 1995) - Forward – Another product of the successful Caithness United/Wick Academy Youth link up. Alan is the son of Wick Academy Assistant Manager Richard Hughes. Like his dad he is a striker. Alan is a very pacy individual with terrific ball control and an eye for a pass and he has his Dad's prolific eye for goal which was very evident when he played for the Academy Under 17 team where he reached 20 plus goals. He has been playing more regularly now for the current CAFA League Champions Wick Groats and has weighed in with a few goals this season already. Will probably be more of a squad player this season but once again another player with a big future at Wick Academy.
