CENTRE-HALF Sam Hughes returned for a second loan spell with the Brewers on deadline day having enjoyed an impressive spell in the first half of the 2020-21 campaign which was cut short by an ACL injury in December 2020.
Having come through the academy at Chester in 2015 he became a regular in their defence and was one of their youngest captains before earning a move to Premier League Leicester City, joining up with the Foxes Development Squad in 2017.
Sam made his EFL debut during a loan spell with League Two side Salford City in 2019 going on to make eight appearances for the Ammies.
Sam made a big impression on everyone at the Pirelli Stadium in his first spell and is a welcome addition to the Brewers 2021-22 squad.
