Judge initially arrived at Meadow Lane at the end of August 2010 on a six-month loan deal from Blackburn Rovers.
Immediately endearing himself with the County faithful with some energetic showings across the midfield and in attack, it was warmly received when he made his move permanent in January 2011.
Never afraid to get in the thick of the action or have a pop at goal, he made a significant impact in the Magpies avoiding relegation to League 2 in 2010.11, subsequent to his return from injury.
2011.12 allowed Judge to show his full capabilities and led to him being dubbed the ‘Irish Messi’.
A range of spectacular goals and 13 assists saw him receive the Fans’ Player of the Year and Players’ Player of the Year awards.
