Clarke Appointed Football League Chairman

Clarke Appointed Football League Chairman

Former Leicester City chairman Greg Clarke has been appointed chairman of the Football League this week.

Clarke, the former chief executive of Cable and Wireless Communication, takes over the role from Lord Mawhinney, who spent seven years in the job.

The 52-year-old was ratified at the League's board meeting on Thursday but has yet to start his new role, with a date yet to be confirmed.

Clarke told the Football League website: 'As a lifelong football fan it is a privilege to serve the game in this capacity.

'My time at Leicester City provided an insight into the challenges clubs face on a daily basis. The lessons learnt from that experience will not be forgotten.'

Clarke will spend the next few weeks meeting League officials and club officials.
