Oldham star Kenny Hughes joins North Wales

Oldham forward Kenny Hughes has joined North Wales Crusaders on a one-year deal.

Hughes becomes Crusaders’ second capture from the Roughyeds, following the acquisition of centre Matt Reid.

The 28-year-old has spent eight years at Oldham, the first two of them being in their reserve team, before making his professional bow in 2013.

Hughes scored 29 tries in 138 appearances for Oldham and will now move to the Crusaders for 2019.
