Jon Rudkin is an English football coach currently working for Leicester City as its academy director.

Leicester City

Jon Rudkin was appointed the Academy Manager at Leicester City in June 2003 having previously been a schoolboy in the City youth system himself when he was 16.

After working as a coach on a part-time basis Rudkin took up the full-time post of Head Coach at the then centre of excellence six years ago.

During that period Leicester produced a number of outstanding talents which have progressed from the Academy to the first team - including Emile Heskey and Matthew Piper.

And now his aim is to have the same success to produce further stars of the future for Leicester's first team.

Jon holds the UEFA A licence and has recently completed taking the Academy Director's licence. Based at Leicester City's training facilities at Belvoir Drive his aim is to attract the best young talent to Leicester City from across Leicestershire and further afield.

He works with development centres and fostering new links with local schools and clubs at junior level. Jon and his team have also started to look further in terms of development centres within 60 minutes travelling time of the Walkers Stadium.

On August 29, 2007, he jointly took over managerial responsibility of Leicester after Martin Allen left on mutual consent. [1]
