Pugh joins Hull
Former Burnley player Marc Pugh has today joined Championship club Hull City in a loan deal from Bournemouth until the end of the season.
A local lad, Marc came through the youth system at Burnley and was so close to making a first team debut, finding himself on the bench on a number of occasions, but it didn’t happen and he was released at the end of the 2005/06 season.
By then, he’d enjoyed loans in the Conference at Kidderminster and in League Two with Bury. He signed for Bury permanently during the summer of 2006 but moved on to Shrewsbury a year later. Two years there, during which he went on loan to both Luton and Hereford, he signed for Hereford.
One year later, Eddie Howe came calling and took him to Bournemouth in a £100,000 transfer. He’s moved up the leagues with Bournemouth, making over 270 league appearances for them, but his opportunities have lessened this season and he’s not featured in the league at all.
Now 31, he’s moved to Hull and he said after completing the move: “I’m ecstatic about the new challenge ahead. I’ve met the gaffer (Nigel Adkins) and the rest of the squad and the team unity is something that shone through straight away.
“The team has been on a great run recently and it is a team that fights for each other all the way. I’m really looking forward to being a part of that.”Share this page :
