Tony braves the pain


A grimace on the face of an Accountancy Age profilee is not an unusual sight, TS has come to realise.

Having fallen down a flight of stairs the night before, Supperstone battled his way into the Brum office of BDO Stoy Hayward to fulfill his interviewing requirements ­ before scooting off to the accident and emergency department of the local hospital.
