Ra­zor out to sharpen skills of hope­fuls

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION -

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.
