Kevin Johns the stadium announcer at Swansea City FC’s Liberty Stadium has been charged with sexual offences against a child. It is alleged that he indecently assaulted a boy in Swansea in the 1980s.
The 59-year-old appeared at Swansea Magistrates Court on Tuesday where he faced two charges relating to a child under 16. He was bailed to appear at Swansea Crown Court on September 4.
Johns is well-known throughout the Swansea area for his daily radio show on Swansea Sound as well for his announcing duties at the Liberty Stadium, his charity work, and as a dame in the city’s annual panto at the Grand Theatre.
He was awarded an MBE for services to charity in Wales in 2013.
A spokesperson for Bauer Media, which owns Swansea Sound said: “We have agreed with Kevin Johns that he will take a leave of absence from his presenting duties to allow him time to fully focus on the police investigation.”
Swansea City have made no announcement as to whether he will carry on with his duties or not.
