Clutch quite often judders when starting of as well .
Clutch is not disengaging fully , try pumping the clutch a few times ,then try and put in gear when engine running .if she goes into gear check the hydraulic side of the clutch may need bleeding as not disengaging fully as said .typical issue . With the clutch judder this is from a warn out clutch springs on the clutch friction plate which could mean a bad clutch that could also give you this problem .What ever the clutch needs replacing to sort out the judder..

Have tried pumping the clutch but it still won't go into gear with car running .
Does it feel normal or does the clutch travel feel a bit shorter than normal .

Clutch travel feels normal .
Hi .
Starting to look like syncro ring problem ,or a bent selector rod .
Do the gears grate when you try to select a gear .
What ever you will need to remove the trans and inspect it .
Could be selector rod or syncro rings most likely a selector rod .

No the gears don't grate it just won't go into gear . When car is not running it will go into every gear without a problem .
Check the transmission looks like a internal issue as said like a selector rod .Also very possible clutch ,as said trans must be removed to check both possibility's Greg
