LUFC Former favourite moves into coaching

Former Leeds United fans favourite Andy Hughes has taken his first step into coaching after joining Bolton Wanderers.

Hughes will still be part of the playing squad but he will take up the role of professional development coach and will work with the development squads at the Reebok.

The 36-year-old joins Bolton from Charlton Athletic after making just eight appearances for the London club last season.

Hughes left Leeds in January 2011 after making 139 appearances during his time at Elland Road.

The utility man was one of the first players to complete a deal with Leeds in the troubled summer of 2007 and he helped Leeds reach the play-off final. His never say die attitude saw him become a fans favourite during his time with Leeds and he helped the side win promotion from League One as well as beat Manchester United in the FA Cup in 2010.
