U18 Apprentice – Ellis Hudson signs Pro Contract with the Club

Hudson, who will turn 18 in February next year, has penned a two-year contract with the football club with the option of a further year’s extension.
The talented left winger has already made his senior debut with Stuart McCall’s side after coming on as a second half substitute in last month’s Checkatrade Trophy win over Stoke City.
Hudson, who is pictured below alongside joint-owner Edin Rahic, was also an unused substitute in City’s 1-1 draw at Millwall in Sky Bet League One earlier this month.
Known for his turn of pace and ability to dribble effortlessly past players with the ball, Hudson caught the eye recently in City’s youth team after a superb solo goal in their 5-1 win over Grimsby Town.
The Bradford-born winger featured in a number of City’s reserves matches last season during their title-winning campaign, the youngster scoring an eye-catching individual goal in a home match against Shrewsbury Town.
Hudson has been with City since joining the club’s academy set-up at the age of 8.
He said: “I’ve dreamt of this moment ever since I started playing football really.
“It was great to make my full debut on the pitch against Stoke earlier in the season – it was something I’ve worked so hard for. It was still a big shock for me though when I was offered this deal.
“There is obviously a massive step-up from youth team to first team but I think I have managed to cope quite well in training.
“It is a lot more physical but I will have to make sure I handle it all, keep trying to play my football and trying to impress.
“Playing in the reserves last season I think helped me with my progression as well, that is obviously another step up from the youth team.
“I played with Daniel Devine last season and I think he has set a good standard for other young players coming through like myself. He is a good role model.”
