Clarke handed league top job

12 Mar 2010 - 14:49:47

The Football League have appointed Greg Clarke as their new chairman, with current incumbent Lord Mawhinney becoming Honorary President of the Football League.

Fifty-two-year-old Clarke was most recently chief executive of Cable & Wireless, while he also had a short stint as Leicester City chairman several years ago.

Clarke told the Football League's official website: "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."
