Haverfordwest County AFC are delighted to announce the loan signing of Caleb Hughes from Cardiff City.

The 18-year-old joins the club until the end of the season, and becomes our sixth signing of the January transfer window, following Ryan George, Corey Shephard, Jordan Davies (loan), Zac Jones and Alex Worley in putting pen to paper with the Bluebirds.

Hughes, a midfielder, signed his first professional deal with the capital side in October 2021 after impressing in his appearances for the various age grade teams.

A talented set-piece taker, the youngster was nominated in Cardiff City’s goal of the month award for November 2021 for his excellent free-kick in the under-18s game against Swansea City.

In recent times, his performances for the under-18s have seen him move up an age group to feature for the under-23s, who compete in the Professional Development League South, which is organised by the Premier League.

He has also featured for Wales at under-19 level, playing in all three of their 2022 European under-19 championship qualifying round matches in October.

After making a 30-minute cameo against Georgia, he went on to play the full 90 in the match with Norway, before netting two goals in the 3-0 win over Kosovo on October 12 to help Wales to their first victory in Group 10.

We look forward to seeing what Caleb can offer as we approach Phase Two of the JD Cymru Premier season, while helping to continue his development in a competitive environment.

Welcome to the Ogi Bridge Meadow, Caleb!
