Mike Ruddock 1935-2022

It is with deep regret that we must inform you of the passing of Mr Mike Ruddock.
27 Apr 2022

Mike was a former student of the School and was also a member of the Governing Body for a number of years. He was Chair of Governors from 1995 to 2004. During his time as a Governor, he was a keen supporter of the School and he played a major role in securing the purchase of land near Caldy RFC which is now Glasspool Fields.  

Mike was also a long serving member of both the Rugby and cricket section at Caldy RFC. He was an opening batsman for their 1st XI and held a number of positions within the cricket section.  Mike joined the Old Caldeians after school and made his debut for the 1st XV in 1955, he was Captain for two years from 1959-61. He was very involved with the organising the Sevens dances in the early 60's to raise funds for the levelling of the 1st XV pitch which is such an asset to both the cricket and rugby Section. He was Chairman from 1967- 69 when a decision was taken to become an open club and changed its name to Caldy RFC. As Chairman of Caldy Sports club he was instrumental in the amalgamation of the sections. 

Mike was a true gentleman who will be greatly missed by all who had the opportunity to know him. Our thoughts are with his family at this difficult time.
