Aston Villa Academy graduate Rushian Hepburn-Murphy’s loan spell out with League Two side Cambridge United is now officially at an end as he returned to Bodymoor Heath early, along with Jake Doyle-Hayes, as they both picked up injuries that ruled them out of Colin Calderwood’s final game of the 2018/19 campaign.

Having returned for treatment and rehabilitation, RHM’s season in the second half of the year saw the 20-year-old make ten starting appearances with a further six showings from the substitutes bench, and in those games, he contributed two goals, helping them to four points in a win over Grimsby Town and a draw with Carlisle United.

Those four points were key in seeing them finish fourth from bottom of the table, and they avoided the drop by six points ultimately. Taking to social media this week, whilst he’d have no doubt hoped for a better goal return, it seems he won plenty of fans over with his overall efforts on the pitch for them.
