Chesney Francis Hughes (born 20 January 1991) is a West Indian cricketer who plays for the Leeward Islands cricket team. He was born in Anguilla.

Having held a British passport Hughes signed for Derbyshire in June 2009, he made his List A debut for the side during the 2009 Pro40 League against Warwickshire, scoring 4 runs.

In the early 2010 season Hughes started by scoring 41 on his first class debut against Middlesex at Lords in May 2010. Two weeks later he reached three figures for the first time in first class cricket in only his fifth innings of county cricket at the age of 19. The rest of the 2010 season saw Hughes go on to score another century, 156 against Northamptonshire at Chesterfield, and a further three half centuries, one of them being a match winning 96* on a questionable wicket at Bristol.

In total, 2010 saw Hughes amass 784 runs at an average of 41.26 in Championship cricket. In limited overs cricket he scored 422 runs at an average of 35.16.

During the winter months of 2010/11, Hughes played in the Caribbean after he was selected in the Leeward Islands squad.
