Alan Hughes (born 5 October 1948) is an English former footballer who played as a forward.

Hughes made nine appearances in The Football League with Chester in 1967–68, during a loan spell from Liverpool (where he failed to make any league appearances). Hughes replaced David Hancox in the Chester number nine shirt when he made his debut in November 1967,[1] with the two-month loan spell also yielding two FA Cup appearances and a Welsh Cup outing.[2] His two league goals came against Swansea Town and Port Vale.[2] His loan spell expired in January 1968 and he did not play again in the Football League.
