Lee Hughes: 'Notts County will play friendly at Worcester City'

Joe Jones

New Worcester City joint-manager Lee Hughes has claimed that Notts County owner Alan Hardy has agreed to a pre-season friendly encounter between the two clubs.

Hughes remains a fan favourite at Meadow Lane, having netted 65 goals in 144 games in three-and-a-half seasons between 2009 and 2013.

The 40-year-old was appointed at the Victoria Ground earlier this month to work alongside John Snape at the seventh-tier club.

He told Worcester News: “I was on a question and answer at Notts County with supporters.

“The new owner was there and I asked him for a friendly game. He said yes, so he is going to bring a team down to play us in pre-season.”

The former West Bromwich Albion and Coventry City striker insists he is keen to boost cash-strapped Worcester financially.

“If the clubs want me to do questions and answers and forums I will do that,” Hughes added.

“I will try to generate a bit of money as I just want to help the club get into a better situation.”

It would be great to see Lee Hughes back at the lane, even if it was him playing against us. Good luck in management Lee.

I thought it would be at Meadow Lane, though it seems it will be at their ground.

It would make more sense if we offered to host him and donated 50% of the revenue generated from the game, as this would give them more of a chance to increase their budget.
