Welshman Andrew Hughes joined Peterborough United from Newport County in the summer of 2016.

Hughes was one of Grant McCann's first signings as Posh boss and has proved to be an excellent acquisition at left-back. Solid in the tackle, decent in the air and keen to get forward and support the attacks, Hughes netted his first (and to date) and only goal for the club in the 2-0 away win at Milton Keynes Dons in 2016.

The 24-year-old was part of the Cardiff City Academy before joining the Newport Academy at the age of 15, making his first team debut for the Dragons just a year later. A Wales semi-professional international, Hughes has firmly established himself as a fans favourite in a position that has caused Posh a few problems in recent seasons.
