Taking Rushden & Diamonds back into League football

As any Diamonds fan will know, Kidderminster's relegation to the Conference in 2006 after several successful seasons in the Football League was tough on the club. Their fairytale climb up through the divisions which had begun with promotion to the Beazer Homes Premier League in 1993 was over and the club is once making it's way in non-league football.

The downward spiral coincided with a downturn in financial fortunes which forced the club to release a number of key players. Several changes in the boardroom and in the management of the club have further disrupted the team and performances have improved little since the return to the Conference. The current season is not looking likely to bring a vast improvement, with the Diamonds already well off the pace for the promotion places.

The club enjoys above average attendances for a Conference side and has a loyal fanbase, but with yet another season passing by, those fans deserve to be seeing the club fighting to win the Conference and regain their place in the Football League.

If you would like the chance to help put Rushden & Diamonds back on the path to glory and have a say in the future of the club, then maybe The People's Club can help.

Rushden & Diamonds - The People's Club?

The People’s Club are looking to sign up 40,000 football fans who are interesting in buying and running a real football club, which will be chosen by our members. We expect to bring in excess of £1,500,000 investment per season to the chosen club.

If our members choose Rushden & Diamonds to be The People's Club, then what will we do?

Firstly, we'll bring much needed investment to the club in a number of ways.

You can expect gate receipts at home games to go up as members travel to see games and boost the attendance figures. Innovative commercial activities will bring in additional revenue and the very nature of The People's Club concept will naturally mean Rushden & Diamonds will receive a massive publicity boost as the local and national media all monitor the success of the club.

Secondly, you, the fans, will run the club. You'll have the ability to vote on whether to hire or fire a manager, which players start each game each week and who is on the bench. As the transfer window opens, you'll be able to choose who we sign and who we transfer list.

We're giving you the opportunity to take Rushden & Diamonds forwards - and, who knows, maybe one day we'll be boarding coaches to take us to Old Trafford, Stamford Bridge and Villa Park every other Saturday.

Most importantly, what we won't do is change Rushden & Diamonds for the worse. We're all football fans and we fully understand the importance of the heritage and identity of the club and the feeling of belonging that each and every Rushden & Diamonds fan feels. We certainly won't be relocating the team to Milton Keynes or mucking around with the club crest.
