Lawrence (Laurie) Hughes (born 2 March 1924) is an England former international football player who played for Liverpool. Born in Waterloo, Liverpool, Lancashire, England, Hughes was a strong, uncompromising Centre Half, who could also play wing half; he had the knack of being able to read the game-stopping moves before they caused too many problems. Hughes signed for Liverpool in 1943 from Tranmere where he was a trainee; however, it wasn't until 5 January 1946 that he made his debut in a 2-0 FA Cup 3rd round 1st leg victory at Sealand Road, Chester, his one and only goal didn't come until 8 December 1951 in a league game at Anfield against Preston, Hughes' 88th-minute strike saving a point in the 2-2 draw.
