THE former chief executive of Wigan-based sports goods company JJB Sports, has gone on trial in connection with an alleged £1million fraud in relation to contracts.

Christopher Ronnie, 52, is accused of receiving three payments from two sporting goods companies and failing to declare them to JJB’s board of directors.

Southwark Crown Court heard that he used the proceeds of some of the payments, which were hidden by being tied up in genuine business deals, to buy property in Florida.
