League of Ireland legend Philly Hughes is considering his footballing future.
Philly Hughes, who last featured in pro foobtall for Shelbourne in the 2015 season and in total played for 11 different League of Ireland sides throughout an illustrious career, is considering calling it a day.
In a total of 376 appearances, Hughes scored 129 goals – His most prolific seasons coming for Dundalk in 2006-7 when he notched 27 and for Shelbourne in 2011-13 when he fired home 31.
At 34 year he then signed up with St Mochtas talented squad in December of 2015 and was key in their recent success.
The talented baller moved back in the midfield and was a regular as the Saints won their first ever Senior Sunday title in the 2016/17 season.
Last season wasn’t as fruitful for the Portersdown side as they the finished tenth. The Saints will be hoping for a more impressive innings next season but may have to do it without veteran Hughes.
At the tail end of a brilliant in dept with the 42.ie Hughes explained he has yet to decide if he will play on next term.
“The season before last, we won the league, so that was a good experience. This season, we had a poor enough campaign for being champions. But I’m at a crossroads now. I’ll be 37 at the start of next season, so I don’t know whether to play on or just leave it. It’s just one of them decisions I’m going to have to make.”
