Bury sign former Everton centre-back Mark Hughes

Mark Hughes
Hughes started every league game for North Queensland Fury last season

Bury boss Richie Barker has made his first signing since being appointed manager, securing centre-back Mark Hughes on a two-year contract.

The 24-year-old former Everton trainee has had previous spells in the Football League at Northampton and Walsall.

He joined Australian A-League side North Queensland Fury in June 2010 but they were wound up because of financial problems in March.

He will join the club after a medical and receiving international clearance.

League One new boys Bury have also confirmed that Richie Branagan, Andrai Jones and Lenell John-Lewis have all signed new 12-month contracts, but expect Kyle Bennett to leave as he is yet to commit to the club.
