Neil Ruddock

Former Professional Footballer, After Dinner Speaker, Guest Apperances

Neil "Razor" Ruddock (born 9 May 1968 in Wandsworth, London) is a retired English footballer, who played as a central defender.

He made his debut at Millwall (having been associated with the club since age 13), and he had a long career playing for Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton, Liverpool, West Ham, Crystal Palace, and finally a short-lived spell as a player/coach at Swindon Town (working under Director of Football Roy Evans in a two-tier managerial structure).

He won four caps for the England Under-21 squad and one in 1994 for England B when he captained the team against Ireland B at Anfield. On 16 November 1994 he won his only cap for England, playing in a friendly against Nigeria when Terry Venables was national coach.

Throughout his career he battled with weight problems and was often criticised for being unfit; this is often thought to be one of the reasons he only ever gained one full cap for England.

He has also appeared on "I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here" and "Come Dine With Me"

Razor is a real draw on the After Dinner and Sportmans Dinner circuit.
