Carried by the conveyor belt of Manchester United juniors to join Hull City in the early 2010s, Joe Dudgeon was a pacey and feisty left back who joined the Tigers in July 2011. He made a strong early impression and quickly became a first team regular, before a string of bad injuries hampered his place in the squad and, ultimately, ended his career in 2015 at the tender age of 25.
Dudgeon spent some teenage years at Leeds United but switched to Manchester United at 16 and quickly stood out at under-18 and reserve level. He joined Hull City following a brief loan spell at Carlisle United.
Dudgeon hung up his boots when he left Hull City, a loan spell at Barnsley in 2014 was his last shot at the senior game. He quickly moved into coaching and currently has a dual role working for the Northern Ireland national side and Manchester City.
Dudgeon was capped at under-21 level by Northern Ireland.
