Rosie Hughes arrived at Wrexham in the summer of 2021 with a reputation as one of the most prolific strikers in North Welsh women’s football and everything that has followed has fully lived up to that billing.
Hughes previously played with Llandudno and Denbigh Town, and is believed to be the former’s all-time top Welsh Women’s Premier League goalscorer.
She made an immediate mark with four goals at the Racecourse against Northop Hall Ladies in pre-season, and scored a hat-trick on the opening day of the 2021/22 season against Pwllheli.
Her remarkable goalscoring feats in her first season included hitting nine in one match against former team Denbigh Town and she finished the year with 48 goals in just 21 appearances.
She was named Player of the Season and Golden Boot winner for both the Club and the league that summer, and repeated the same feat the following year after hitting 42 goals in just 18 games.
Those goals included the late winner at the Racecourse against Connah’s Quay Nomads in front of a Welsh record 9,511 supporters on the final day. Hughes also assisted Rebecca Pritchard’s winning goal in the play-off final against Newtown.
After 90 goals in her first two seasons, Hughes was awarded a semi-professional contract ahead of the 2023/24 season, and inevitably scored on the opening day against Swansea City.
