    So is there enough to make a complaint to the London stock exchange and / or the HKSE concerning BCFC and BIHL Accounts that didn’t mention this consultancy agreement and payments for around three years?
    Shouldn’t the Football League also have been informed of this agreement via BCFC accounts so breaking a League rule?

    Ref Hugh Johns
    Hugh moved to Cardiff to take up a football journalistic job with The People in the early 1960s. He was encouraged by another South Wales journalist Lloyd Lewis (of the News of the World) to do some voice overs for TWW’s weekly Sports Preview show (fronted over the years by various sports stars of the day, including Danny Blanchflower,& Ron Pickering) which also progressed to a large number of voice overs for various TWW television adverts, ~ all that led to his 1966 World Cup break through commentary.
    He remained living in Cardiff, whilst initially commuting to London, then to the Midlands for his ATV commentaries.Maintaining various sporting work for HTV’s Sports Preview including following the South Wales football teams into Europe through the European Cup Winners Cup,but also boxing, local athletics, and many sporting interviews both on location or in the studio.
    When he and ATV parted company, he continued working for HTV’s weekly sports programmes, and expanded his commentaries to both Indoor Bowls (particularly for Granada) and Crown Bowls (for Sky).
    Hugh was very much a Welshman, both his parents coming from Pembrokeshire, although he himself was educated in Watford Boys Grammar School (where Sir Stanley Rous had been a sports master) and at Farnham Grammar School.
    He was always known as Hugh not Huw, and any use of the name Huw was an error by who so ever used it.
    I hope this has added a little more of a history to my father.
