ONLY few tickets remain for a talk-in featuring one of football’s hardmen which is taking place in Hartlepool this weekend.

Neil “Razor” Ruddock is backing Hartlepool & District Hospice at a sportsman’s dinner event, being held at Hartlepool United Supporters Club on Saturday.

The former Liverpool, Spurs and England defender was recognised as one of football’s toughest competitors during a lengthy playing career and has built up a good reputation since moving onto the after dinner circuit.

Ruddock, who also proved to be a big hit during a stint on ITV’s I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here, has been brought to Hartlepool by town-based events organiser Brian Smith, of Top Flight Entertainment.

While Ruddock will be the main attraction, Brian has also organised an auction to help boost the coffers which features signed memorabilia from the likes of Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard.

Doors open at 7pm on the night.

Tickets for the event are priced at £25, which includes a pie and peas supper, and are available from Brian on 07513 484768.
