Jamie Hughes (born 1 April 1977 in Liverpool) is a current semi-professional and former professional English footballer who is notable for becoming the first British footballer to fail a test for a performance-enhancing drug. While a YTS player with Division One Tranmere Rovers in May 1995, he failed a drugs test and was discovered to have taken amphetamines. His punishment for the offence was a six-month ban from football (suspended for two years).

Hughes has since played at non-league level for clubs including Vauxhall Motors, Lancaster City and Ashton United. He also played for Rhyl, Bangor City and Connah's Quay Nomads in the League of Wales and Derry City in the Irish league.
