Just in time to face Rushden & Diamonds at the weekend, Chester City boss Keith Curle has completed the signing of Everton goalkeeper John Ruddy on a seven-day emergency loan.

Just the other week Ruddy was a Rushden player! The 19-year-old already having spells with Walsall and Rushden this season. It goes without saying that the shot-stopper goes straight into the City side to face Diamonds after the Blues were given dispensation by the Football League to draft in an emergency replacement for injured goalkeepers Chris MacKenzie and Ryan Brookfield.
