Like his former Blues colleague Charlie Kelman, Matt Rush attended Bromfords School, forming a devasting strike partnership with the American youth international in the youth team.
The pair continued their free-scoring form with the U18s in the 2018/19 season, where both forwards netted over 20 times.
Rush, who started his career with grassroots club Wickford Town, ended the 18/19 season as the U18s leading goalscorer, netting 23 times in total to add to six goals in the previous campaign.
He also marked his U23s debut, away to Portsmouth, with a superb hat-trick.
The front-man signed for the club as an U14 player during the 2014/15 season and is capable of scoring goals from inside and outside the penalty area.
Rush made his fist-team debut away to Sunderland as a sub during the 2019/20 campaign, ending the season with eight appearances in total with his first start coming away to Peterborough United.
