BREAKING | Harry McHugh joins on loan from Wigan!

    Chester FC are pleased to announce the loan signing of Harry McHugh from Wigan Athletic!

    The midfielder, who turns 20 next week, joins us from the Sky Bet Championship side on an initial 28-day youth loan.

    From Liverpool, Harry started his career at Everton before making the move to the Latics, where he progressed from the academy to senior level.

    In his first senior start for Wigan, McHugh scored a stunning goal in an EFL Trophy tie at Tranmere Rovers.

    The central midfielder has made a total of six senior appearances at the DW Stadium, and could be available for selection when the Blues visit Spennymoor Town this weekend.

    Manager Calum McIntyre said: “Harry will add to a centre midfield that has been massively hit by injuries during the opening spell of the season.

    “To have lost two further midfielders to suspension has meant we have been on the barest of bones in recent weeks and I’m pleased we’ve finally been able to make an addition.

    “We take real pride in our recruitment and in Kieran Coates and Danny Devine we felt we added what was needed when it was needed.

    “Harry is an exciting midfielder with outstanding technical ability and will add an energetic presence to the midfield. We thank Wigan Athletic for trusting us with the next stage of Harry’s development.”

    Welcome to Chester FC, Harry!
