His debut came as a first-half substitute at Gillingham when Fraser Forster was shown a red card. He impressed everyone with his calm authority and communication.
In his five first team starts, City won four and drew one, conceding only three goals.
Rudd has a tremendous future in the game and will surely be in line for an under-21 call-up in the not too distant future.
