Recommended Posts

The Football League has appointed businessman Greg Clarke as their new chairman to take over from Lord Brian Mawhinney.

Clarke, 52, is the former chief executive of Cable and Wireless Communications and last month stepped down as chief executive of satellite broadband company O3b.

A Leicester City fan, who was chairman of the club for a short period, he was also head of Australian property giants Lend Lease, who are building the 2012 Olympic Village, until last year.

He said: "I am honoured to be taking up the position of chairman of the Football League.

"As a lifelong and committed 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.

"I look forward to joining a highly successful organisation whose clubs are at the heart of their communities.

"I intend to build on The League's recent successes and represent all our 72 clubs."
