The EFL has today confirmed that Iron Chief Executive Officer and EFL Board Member James Rodwell will continue to represent EFL Clubs on the FA Board for the 2017/18 season.
Following recent FA governance reforms, the EFL is now able to nominate only one representative to the FA Board and James’ appointment was confirmed unanimously at last week’s EFL Board meeting.
James was first appointed onto the FA Board in 2016 and has been an EFL Director since 2013.
He will continue to fulfil these roles alongside his duties as CEO of Scunthorpe United.
James Rodwell said: “I am delighted to have been handed the opportunity to once again represent my colleagues from across the EFL on the FA Board. It is an honour to have their backing and I look forward to representing the EFL’s interests and its clubs in this role."
"I would like to express my sincere thanks to the Chairman and Directors of SUFC for them allowing me to continue on the Board of the FA.”
