Donations in memory of Eric Hughes to RL Cares

The family of former Widnes player Eric Hughes are asking that all funeral donations in his memory go to Rugby League Cares.

Eric arrived at Naughton Park in 1967, making his debut for Widnes at the age of 21 against Warrington, spending four season with the club.

During his time at Widnes, Eric made 41 appearances, scored one try and kicked one goal, with his final appearance for the club coming against Leeds in 1970.

He also went on to play for Leigh and St Helens during his playing career.

After sadly passing away on 14th August 2020, Eric’s family have decided the most fitting charity to benefit from any funeral donations would be RL Cares, given his love for the sport.
