Goalkeeper’s Cut: John Ruddy

john ruddy

This week’s guest is a man who made his professional debut just three years after taking up goalkeeping.

Three promotions, a bunch of Player of the Year awards and an England call-up followed with the likes of Motherwell, Norwich and currently Wolverhampton Wanderers, but we begin with his rather unique ascent to top-flight football in what is the first of two parts to this particular podcast.

John Ruddy joins GKU to talk learning in lower leagues, early hair loss and a bizarre incident at airport customs.

NB: This podcast was recorded in October 2019. As a result, some references will now be outdated.
