RICHMOND, Va. – (Wednesday, January 2, 2019) – The Richmond Kickers are pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Josh Hughes for the 2019 season, pending USSF and USL League One approval.
“Josh is a very hard working, intelligent midfielder who is very excited for the future of the Richmond Kickers,” remarked Kickers head coach David Bulow. "His enthusiasm for the city and club made it a no brainer to get him signed as soon as possible. I am excited for the Red Army and the rest of the fans to see what a quality player we have signed."
A native of Fort Worth, Texas, Hughes signs with the Kickers after spending the 2018 season with Nashville SC.
