Rudolph G. Hedman (born 16 November 1964) is a retired English professional footballer who played as a defender.


Born in Lambeth, Hedman signed as an apprentice for Colchester United in 1983, and he went on to make 219 appearances for the U's across two spells - the second a loan stint from Crystal Palace. His four year stay with Palace was largely unsuccessful, moving on to play for Dulwich Hamlet and Stevenage Borough and he also enjoyed time in Singapore before returning to England. After retiring from playing, Hedman joined the Colchester's Centre of Excellence coaching staff.[2]
