30 Oct 2020 : Loan star Lloyd Marsh-Hughes signs in at The Millbank
Runcorn Linnets have taken teenage striker Lloyd Marsh-Hughes on loan from Vanarama National League North side Chester.
The 19-year-old, who lives in Abergele, North Wales, is a highly-rated protege of Calum McIntyre - graduating from the Chester Academy under our now manager's guidance.
Lloyd burst onto the first team scene, scoring his first senior goal, aged just 16, in a pre-season friendly at Bala Town in summer 2017.
A powerful and pacy 6ft 1in frontman, Lloyd went on to make his first senior start in the home league game against Curzon Ashton in January of last year – and also made 12 substitute appearances across the season.
After signing his maiden senior deal three months later, Lloyd missed the first part of the 2019-20 through an injury sustained in pre-season.
He moved on loan to Marine in October in a bid to get some valuable game time.
Coming of the bench, Lloyd crowned his debut for former Chester manager Neil Young's side with a cracking goal in a 6-0 defeat of Mossley in NPL North West.
However, he was injured early in the next game against Marske United, causing his stay at College Road to be cut short.
In September 2020, Lloyd returned to Marine Travel Arena, scoring one of the goals in the 4-0 win which rounded off Chester's pre-season programme.
He looked high on confidence having also been on target earlier in the week against Cheadle.
Lloyd appeared as a substitute when Chester visited The Millbank for a friendly ahead of the 2018-19 season.
