Title: Lynn legend Keith Rudd removed as Club President-Chairman's Podcast
Post by: Blue_and_Gold on September 18, 2020, 01:24:26 PM
The Chairman has just released his latest, extra long, Podcast.

There's lots in there for Supporters to consider.

One of the subjects was the decision made by the Chairman, apparently backed by Mark Hearle and Rob Back, is to remove Keith Rudd as the President of the Club. By listening to it, I believe that it appears that the decision was made by the three of them due to what is apparently seen as a negative attitude towards the Club's Academy and their tie-up with Kes.

Keith Rudd on Facebook.
Please let me state that I have never been President of KLFC. Buster Chapman got me to accept it, but then wanted rid of the Reserve, (Speedway don't have it); I said that it was only wasting money to do so!  His wife & Buster took um-bridge, and I was; and never have been recognised as President!! It can only be from looking at programmes, where no-one bothered to remove it! I have never had any role within KLFC for 11 years!!  Just been Laziness on Clubs behalf

So basically Keith  Rudd has been Sacked from a position he was previously removed from or indeed he never had.

Still doesnít alter that he wrote letters to KES slaughtering the current owner and and others who were involved in getting the Academy up and running. 

Perhaps he could explain why he doesnít want the cream of Young footballers in the area to be given the chance to get both an education and to improve as a Footballer ? 

It does seem rather strange that he would want to stop that happening.

This part must be utter nonsense. There may have been a misunderstanding, or more likely a disagreement, on how young footballers should receive an education and improve their skills, but I don't believe for one minute that Keith Rudd does not want the best for the youngsters.

He may have a different opinion on how best  this is achieved, but that's different to not wanting them to have a chance to improve.

This is Keith Rudd we are talking about. Unless you've only been around for 3 years or so, you all know this man. Like him or loathe him, everyone should know that he is 100% for developing young local talent.

Yes really,someone who has done so much for the club over the years pushed out of a position he never held say it all! :banghead; He was not involved with the club in any official capacity so his personal opinions cannot be taken into account! :red card: :red card: :banghead;

I would hope Keith Rudd would support a development by the club that brings young Footballers, in the area into contact with a coach of the Standing and undoubted ability that we as club are fortunate to have, in Ian Culverhouse.

It does seem a strange Route ,firing  of letters to the partner the Club works with On youth Development.   Surely it has to be worth giving it a go, then if it falls flat on its ass.  Then the pelters can fire in.

Stephen Cleeve might not be everyoneís cuppa tea ( me included in certain areas), but he is what we have at the moment in what are very testing times for all Club owners/directors etc.

Iím in the middle on this, because I believe there is very good reason to respect both Keith and SC with what they have given the club.  I feel sure both would be all in favour of developing local players.  However, I am not a believer in the benefits of academies at our level.  For me, too much is made, at all levels, of players having much to ďlearnĒ about the game.  Thatís a general point, but another difficulty, IMO, is that our area isnít big enough to produce many players capable at playing at any pro-level, and those that are will most likely go to clubs higher up the leagues.  Iím also not at all sure that academies can add to normal education either.  Perhaps Iím wrong about both aspects, but when managers like Mourinho get rid of players like Salah, De Bruyne, and Cuadrado, I feel they need to ďlearnĒ about the game as well !

It seems that Keith Rudd is happy to be distanced from the Club and the Club seems happy not for to be involved.   Hopefully that will be the end of matter. 

Just a shame that a legend like Keith Rudd leaves the club on sour note after all his years of undoubted   Dedication to the Club.

Things move on.

Keith Rudd has been long distanced from the club and as he said it was a title made up previously that has never been set in stone.
Therefore although it has been spouted off that he is no longer President he never held that title.
As for not wanting the youth of the area to be given opportunity one thing that Keith has been involved in for many years is bringing on the King's Lynn Community Football scheme to where it is today for KLTFC to then AGAIN start up their own academy threatening certain players in the past that if they did not sign up for the latest scheme or the abandoned one they would never play for KLTFC.
KLCF is not an academy so therefore would not benefit from the financial handouts that a club receives for each player signed on.
Going back to Keith he remembers what happened 13 months ago when the Academy was folded 24 hours before the youngsters that had been signed up were due to start their education and academy duties.
One even turned up on the monday morning with his suitcase as his parents had paid for lodgings for each weekday, having not been informed it was CANCELLED.
If only the HONEST truth was to come out and listening to the Likes of Keith being as worried as he is that this is not about education and coaching this is about HOW MUCH MONEY CAN WE GET FROM THE FA!

And finally Loopy Linnet very concerned that you have come out from hibernation knowing exactly what Keith Rudd has done for KING'S    LYNN FC in previous guises, the youth of the area and football in general.

Did I not read that the said person who turned up didnít inform the club that they had changed their address. I suppose the club should of hired a private investigator to find out why they didnít respond to any notifications that were sent.

I donít think this issue should be clouded by what Keith Rudd has given to the Club.  His dedication and loyalty to Kings Lynn Football Club has been immense over the years.  This was recognised by his elevation ( attempted or otherwise) to the high office of President.

He might not agree with the way the club is run, but should he then take it upon himself to write letters to KES slating the club and itís senior members.?
Surely There can be no better organisation than the Towns football club to run the Academy and Youth structure within the area.    A path forward to the first team is there now.   Whether players will be good enough to climb those steps is another matter.

a) Did he really write a letter to Kes? If he did, surely Kes should not have disclosed the contents of such a letter written to them, to the Club?  :dontknow:

b) If he did (and well within in everyone's right to write letter to whoever they want to), did he really slate the Club or its senior members? Could it be nothing more than a personal point of view that some don't agree with?  :dontknow:

If you have evidence that the club was slated then fair enough but otherwise "slating" (with quotes) or allegedly slating  might be a more accurate description.

Ok I retract the word Ďslating and replace it with the following that I was told...Hope that clears it up and think with regard to Keith and The Club should now be Allowed to move on.

"a absolutely disgusting letter about the football club and its staff to the head teacher it really was out of order".

So what was wrong with the KL Community Football set up that over the years has supplied a massive amount of players that went on to play for the King's Lynn Youth Team, Reserves and subsequently the first team. The same Community Football programme that had a now USA international player in its ranks.
So someone comes along and threatens last years crop that if they don't jump ship and join King's Lynns Academy then they will never play for any of the King's Lynn teams. BRIBERY.
The same KLTFC that slagged off the coaches at KLCF to then take 2 of them on board! HYPOCRISY.

Havenít read on here that anyone has suggested that there was anything wrong with the original set up.   Yeah n turn why should Stephen Cleeve not put in place a youth set up tied 100% into th club and fully utilise the services of someone like Ian Culverhouse, and be tied in to a Football in the 5th tier of English Football  ?

No idea if the area is bigger enough for two Youth set ups but it seems The Football Club are looking at filling in the gaps in the age groups next season.
