Lee Hughes has left Total Motion Midland League Premier Division club Worcester City as joint/player-manager to sign for Evo-Stik League Premier side Halesowen Town.

Hughes will not need much introduction to the West Brom contingent of the Yeltz faithful having scored 99 goals in 237 appearances over two spells at the Hawthorns.

Hughes started his career with Kidderminster Harriers before The Baggies paid a fee that rose to £380,000 for him, he then played for Blackpool, Oldham Athletic, Notts County and Port Vale before dropping out of the football league to join Forest Green Rovers.

Between his spells at the Hawthorns Hughes signed for Coventry City for the unusual sum of £5,000,001, a fee that triggered his release clause, he returned to West Brom in 2002 for £2.5million.
