Published Add your comment

Heather Rabbatts has become the first woman ever on the Football Association's board after the FA Council ratified the appointment of her and Roger Devlin as independent non-executive directors.

The appointment of Rabbatts, a businesswoman who is the former deputy chairman of Millwall, and Devlin, who has acted as a financial advisor to several Premier League clubs, takes the board from 12 to 14 members.

FA chairman David Bernstein said: "The FA Council's ratification today is the final stage in appointing two independent non-executive directors to the FA board and I am delighted that throughout the process, the Council, shareholders and board have shown their overwhelming support."
