Razor out to sharpen skills of hopefuls
TWO Ashford boys made good are teaming up in a nationwide search for football talent. Former Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur defender Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock, who was a pupil at the North School, has set up an organisation called the Pass and Move Soccer Academy. It aims to give young footballers who have been released by their club academies a second chance to get into the professional game. The academy is featured in a new six part documentary to be broadcast on satellite channel SEETV (South East England Television), following the youngsters as they try to win contracts at clubs. Entitled Razor Ruddock’s Pass and Move Soccer Academy, it is presented by John Webster, who also lives in Ashford, and previously worked with Chris Evans. The series will see Razor returning to our screens, four years after his appearance in jungle based reality TV hit I’m a celebrity, get me out of here. The programme is broadcast on Monday nights at seven o’clock, on Sky channel 139.
