Your Local Paper presents Caney’s Corner Live, in association with AMA Waste, an evening with Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock
Countless emails, messages and meet ups.
It’s not been an easy decision to work out how we attempt to take the Caney’s Corner Live concept forward. It was never meant to be a one-off but after a hugely promising start – and that’s all it was – event two was always going to be tricky.
Given the enjoyment of an evening with Norwich City legends Iwan Roberts and Darren Huckerby, did we go down a similar route?
Or would that take us along an already packed Canaries path with amazing offerings from my old newspaper and radio friends and next generation such as YouTube and ITV starlet Jack Reeve.
So the decision was made to step away from the Yellows, – for now, although there are still options available for more Canaries nights in the future.
Once football had been nailed, due to its wider reach, it was a case of finding guests, prices and working out a date that suited all parties.
Thankfully the Duke’s Head, photographer Paul Tibbs, PA man Paul Searle and my “bosses” at Your Local Paper, Alan Taylor and Gary Bush, could work with September 5 – as could Neil ‘Razor’ Ruddock.
He’s a big character who will have plenty of tales that should have the crowd in stitches again.
The icing on the cake arrived when Ben Lukey agreed for AMA Waste to become our sponsor. It’s vital support, in many ways, that helps as we continue to grow this dream of mine that’s become a reality.
Different sports are coming. Different names are coming. Different locations could be coming. But for now, let’s all enjoy a visit from Razor.
