Date: 30-01-15 gif Lee Hughes is back where he belongs
Lee Hughes Following weeks of rumour and discussion the former Harriers legend, Lee Hughes, has finally agreed to return to the club where it all first started for him back in 1992.  He burst onto the scene in that year with some of the finest finishing seen at Aggborough in many a year ending in August 1997 when he finally earned his big money move to his childhood team West Bromwich Albion.

Now drawing towards the end of his career he left Forest Green Rovers today to be with the club he loves until the end of the season.  This may be his final hurrah.

Following his move to the Albion (for £350.000) he then joined Coventry City for an eye watering £5,000,001 with the penny at the end triggering a clause in his contract.  That fee earned the Harriers over £800,000 and we lived off that for a long, long time.

He then returned to the Hawthorns after failing to settle at Coventry but then was involved in a car accident that left a man dead and Hughes no where to be seen.  When he finally handed himself in he was given a six year prison term - ended early - and then a chance to rebuild his career at Oldham Athletic much to the derision of many football fans who believed, and still believe, that he should have been hung, drawn and quartered.  That also includes some of the Harriers own fans so it'll be interesting to see if the members of the so called Red Brigade boo him again tomorrow against Eastleigh.

Also joining the club thirty minutes before the Hughes news was released is Dominic Knowles.  A twenty two year old striker from Burton Albion.

We now seem to have a glut of strikers at the club with those already existing here, Craig Reid, Akwase Asante, Danny Wright and Jamie Spencer seemingly unable to score.  I think Hughes will find it easy but not so sure about Knowles.  We'll see.
