The voice of Midlands football, Hugh Johns(1922-2007) of ATV.
Johns commentated for ITV on the 1966 WC Final,
He also covered the ‘70 ‘74 & ‘78 finals for ITV.
A familiar voice for many of us of a certain age watching football highlights on a Sunday afternoon after the roast.

Unusual free kick routine at the start of the clip. Willie Carr was great on dead ball situations either scoring or setting others up.
Gerald Sinstadt commentating on the game in May 1977.

Didn't he do the donkey kick ?? when playing for Coventry. ???
Yes he did.

Carr scored the opener with a free kick at SJP in the FAC 3rd round game for Wolves in 1978.It was a clever chipped shot, that was subsequently forgotten about with all of the drama that surrounded the game on & off the pitch.
