Country

Wales

Abbey Hughes is the club captain, and there's no doubting her commitment to the Dragons' cause.

A strong centre-back, she played through the pain barrier due to a knee injury until she finally had surgery. That meant she missed the start of the 2021/22 season, but at least she was able to appear in the historic first match the women played at The Racecourse.

Hughes spent a year with Wrexham Ladies and has been part of the Wrexham AFC Women team since its reformation in 2018.

Her leadership qualities are obvious on the pitch, and she defends with authority. She is also able to get attacks started with accurate long passes from the back.
