Right full Rudder at Rushforth Park

July 19th, 2021

They say that if you need a job done, give it to a busy person. In the Clarence, Lynn Rudder is a safe pair of hands for getting things sorted in short order.
Take Saturday as a snapshot.
At 8.30am the Grafton United president was on deck at sparrows helping to set up the canteen and pitch.
At 1pm Lynn was on the park dashing about with the Grafton Sirens, the team she manages in the women’s 2nd Division North Competition.
And they had a win, besting Westlawn Jaguars – but there was no time to swan about in victory, as Lynn had to motor to the supermarket to top up on ground supplies, and by 5pm was serving beverages at Rushforth after the curtain finally fell on the football.
“That’s a normal Saturday pretty much,” Lynn said. “Six men’s games, two women’s, small-sided soccer and juniors.”
“It was a little bigger than usual as Coutts Crossing had troubles with the ground so we had their men’s 2nd Division game too.”
Off-field, Lynn wears the hats at Grafton as registrar and COVID safety officer in addition to the president’s gig.
But she stressed it’s in good company – noting six of the seven committeee positions are filled by team mates from the Sirens.
“We’re mothers, so we’re used to multi-tasking,” Lynn laughed.
And the pending end of the football season will bring little respite for the high school teacher, as she’s also the treasurer for Grafton Athletics.
Truth be told, Lynn wouldn’t have it any other way.
“I am a do-er. I was brought up to be a do-er,” she said.
Keep doing the do, Lynn, as your lion-hearted efforts are appreciated and admired.
