Mel was an extraordinary professional and served as the League’s Legal Advisor for many years, – he will leave a lasting legacy to the footballing world.
As well as being instrumental in the Leagues commercial activity, he was also attributed as being one of the first specialist sports lawyers. Mel represented a number of global stars including Chris Waddle, Paul Gascoigne and Alan Shearer and many others.
