A Profile of John Hughes, Caley Thistle



Time flies when you're having fun and it's certainly the case for Inverness Caledonian Thistle manager John Hughes. The former Hibernian and Falkirk manager took over the reigns at the Inverness club a year ago taking over from Terry Butcher and made the move to the Highlands unsure of what to expect in his new surroundings. Fast forward a year and like his predecessor, Hughes has settled nicely into the area and would even go as far to say he's in love with his new abode. He's able to combine his biggest passions in the tranquil environment, cycling, golf and especially coaching football!! Spend any more than sixty seconds in the man's company and his beliefs and ideas for football teams to play the game in the correct manner will quickly be evident. Hughes wants his side to play football in a style that is just as attractive as the Highland scenery surrounding the Tulloch Caledonian Stadium. That’s why it’s no surprise to see Caley Thistle once more towards the top end of the SPFL Premiership and aiming for an even higher position than last season. John Hughes and his team are looking to push on in 2015 and with the philosophy that the manager is implementing at the club, here’s to continued progress and success.
