Trialist Hudson Offered Contract
Wednesday, 4th May 2022 12:26

TWTD understands the Blues have offered trialist left-back Max Hudson a contract.

The 17-year-old, who has been with Southern League Division One Central side Hertford this season, has played in Town’s last three U23s games, including yesterday's 3-0 home victory over Sheffield United, and has done well enough to win a professional contract with the aim of becoming a regular member of the development squad next season.

Hudson was with Tottenham’s academy as a schoolboy and as an U15 spent time at an England training camp, but wasn’t offered a scholarship last summer.

Town boss Kieran McKenna is likely to be familiar with Hudson having been the U18s coach at Spurs while Hudson was playing for younger age groups.

It’s believed a number of EFL clubs had taken note of Hudson’s performances for Hertford with the Blues inviting him to spend time at Playford Road after watching him in a trial match for young players looking to return to the professional game.

Based on yesterdays performance he would be an excellent addition, as he looked calm and assured in a very good u23 display.

One for the future...

Nice one, adds to our impressive youth list. He must have serious potential to get a contract considering we have so many youngsters breaking through.

Well done lad; but remember that the hard work lies ahead of you not behind.

Gforce added 14:43 - May 4
If he's half as good as his uncle Alan,he'll do alright 😃

Linkboy13 added 16:12 - May 4
Saw him yesterday was decent but a long way from being a first team player still looks in the development stage. Needs to beefen up a bit will go out on loan when he's ready.

Don’t all jump the gun, the article says he has been offered a contract, not he has signed

Hopefully the lad will sign as he knows Kierran rather than ending up a with a Championship Club. Years ago we picked up Jamie Clapham in a similar way and he did all right for us.

Always hard to tell at his age. Some make it and some fade away, let’s hope he’s the former. 👍

Baddowblue1 how is this similar to the way Jamie Clapham joined town? we paid 300,000 for Clapham.We have plucked this kid from non-league. If he turns out as good as Clapham, then great!

Look at Crowe… loads of talent but maybe more chance he would realise it if he’d gone this route and found out success wasn’t a given, it has to be earned. Hope we sign him and he has the hunger to make it. Too many youngsters given too much too soon then don’t have a career. This lad has knuckled down and not assumed he’d get it all handed to him on a plate.

Fingers crossed he accepts the deal, strength in depth and youth. Perfect planning.

Not a great signal to our Academy.

Linkboy13 added 14:36 - May 5
@MaySixth yes i agree he's ok but no better than what we've already got. Physically he's got a lot of work to do . Maybe that was the reason he was released by Tottenham being too small. Ipswich in the past have taken on players for this reason which is not a problem as some develop at a later stage. Kieron Dyer was very small but developed in to a top player but was hampered by injuries because of his physic. More recently young Tristan Nydam had to retire because of injury possibly because he wasn't quite ready for the rigours of senior football.
