Hertford Town have confirmed that a deal has been struck for Max Hudson to join Ipswich Town.

The 18-year-old previously spent time within the academy set-up at Tottenham Hotspur, where he is likely to have encountered Ipswich boss Kieran McKenna, who was starting out on his coaching journey at the time with the Premier League side.

Hudson, who operates as a left-back, later dropped out of the professional game and last term he ended up joining Hertford – a side that plays at Step 4 on the non-league pyramid in the Southern League Division One Central.

However, according to TWTD, Hudson impressed watching Ipswich scouts in a match played at Needham Market earlier this year organised for young players that were looking to make their way back into full-time football.

He was subsequently invited to Playford Road for a trial and this summer has featured for Ipswich's Under-23s in a batch of friendlies against local sides, including Stowmarket Town and Bury Town.

And now Hertford, for whom Hudson made five appearances, have confirmed that they have 'agreed a transfer' with the Tractor Boys.

"After a series of eye-catching displays for us, we're delighted that Max has signed a professional contract. It's been a pleasure playing a part in his development and we wish him a successful career in the game."
