Hugh Johns R.I.P.

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I remember a bloke
In a sauve sheepskin coat
Holding the mike at St Andrews.

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 When Francis was but a mere
Boy scoring goals
To Brum fans a right double handfull.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 A voice that was sharpened
On a few pints of Brains
Oiled with the odd fag or two.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Hugh Johns has just taken
That mike to Elysian Fields
So for news of a goal scored
It’s over to Hugh!



Hugh Johns, the other great commentator on the World Cup Final in ’66’.

He covered the match for I.T.V.

Goodnight and may your God go with you.
