Recommended Posts

According tae the postie  :wave:


Former Spurs youngster Cian Hughton, son of Birmingham City manager Chris, is the latest to get a trial at Pittodrie. Craig Brown happy to have a look at the lad, who played for Lincoln after failing to make as big an impact at Spurs as his dad did.






Cian James Hughton (born 25 January 1989) is an English-born Irish footballer who is currently without a club. He plays as a defender.


Tottenham Hotspur


He joined Tottenham Hotspur's academy in 2005, and went on to make 15 youth team appearances that season. Established, he played a further 27 games the following season, scoring once and stepping into the reserve set-up, where he appeared on a total of 21 occasions over two seasons.


Lincoln City


On 27 July 2009 Hughton signed a six-month contract with Lincoln City.[1] He made his professional debut in the 1–0 victory over Barnet on August 8, 2009.


In May 2011 he was not offered a new contract after a mass clear out of players following the club's relegation from the Football League.[3] In June 2011 he joined Vancouver Whitecaps of the MLS for a ten-day trial[4] but failed to earn a contract.[5]


Hughton featured on trial at Bristol Rovers making his first appearance in a 5-1 pre-season win over local side Mangotsfield United.[6] He then appeared on trial for Milton Keynes Dons in a friendly against Buckingham Town, scoring in a 6-0 victory. He has been training with his Dad, Chris' team Birmingham City.




He played 63 times for Lincoln scoring 6 times - better strike record than most of our strikers!
