Ruel Fox | Tottenham | Sticker No. 471 | 1997
We found Ruel Fox! We were delighted with this find, particularly Ketch who got to take a deep dive into Entertainers era Newcastle United.
Ruel approaches the podcast much like he played the game: front foot, rapid pace and with a beaming smile on his face. We cover everything from Norwich City's game show-style bonus system of the early 90s, to club cars, sessions in Newcastle's Bigg Market and opting for the quiet serene of Colchester over the bright lights of London when he signed for Spurs.
We were connected with Ruel by the good people at Play With a Legend for whom Ruel is 'legend' and available to play football with as part of their amazing packages. Visit playwithalegend.com for more details. In the episode we discuss a 10-10 Play With a Legend thriller Ruel took part in at Carrow Road, highlights of that epic are available to watch here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rjEcaeGTy4A
Ketch also mentions in the episode a story he wrote about Newcastle United's 'Lost Youth Team' of 1994, you can read that here: https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/incredible-story-newcastle-uniteds-lost-20252419
