Ben Hughes
Date of Birth

Swansea City completed the signing of Ben Hughes from Chippenham Town in May 2021. 

The Welsh international is a product of Chippenham Town's academy, having been recruited from grassroots football in the summer of 2020. 

Having impressed in the Wiltshire club's academy set-up, Hughes joined their pre-season programme and played regularly for the age-side, as well as featuring on the bench in the National League. 

Ben was then called up to the Welsh U19 national team Futsal camp last year. An impressive display during the 3 day camp then led to Ben making history by becoming the first player from grassroots Football to be called up to the full U18 Wales national team squad. Just a week later, the then 17-year-old made his U18 debut for his country against England.
