Richard_Hughes

Name:   Hughes, Richard

Role:   Assistant Manager

Sponsor: Harrolds Butchers

Profile:

Former Academy striker 'Tichie' played in the North Caledonian League  team in the late 70s as a teenager.  Scored a memorable goal past Henry Smith in a friendly against Hearts on the 30th of July 1984. Made his Highland League debut against Cove Rangers on the 6th of August 1994 under manager at the time John MacDonald. His first goal came 3 games later in a HL Cup tie against Clachnacuddin at Grant Street Park.   

From season 1994-95 he started 117 games for Academy, and scored 32 goals. At time of writing he remains the clubs seventh highest goal scorer. Tichie took over as co-manager of the Scorries with Ian Munro (Zeeky) in January 2007 following the departure of Peter Budge. He and Munro resigned at the end of season 2010-11 and was appointed assistant manager to Davie Kirkwood in June 2011.

Tichie and co-manager Zeeky were voted as Highland League Managers of the year for season 2009-10 after steering Academy to a 5th place finish in the table, at that date our highest ever league position, after a 10 game winning streak.

Took over as Caretaker Manager on the 1st of September 2012 following David Kirkwood's shock resignation to join Brora Rangers, and was also Caretaker Manager for a brief spell in February 2014 when Barry Wilson left for Elgin City.

Tichie was the co-assistant Manager under Barry Wilson and was then appointed as Assistant Manager to Gordon Connelly at the beginning of February 2014 and then by Tom McKenna in September 2017.
