Rosenior ‘honoured’ to be on panel to appoint new FA chairman

L

iam Rosenior will form part of a diverse selection panel tasked with the responsibility of identifying the next FA chairman.

A six-member team has been announced, as the game’s governing body seek a successor to Greg Clarke.

The former chairman was forced to resign this month after a series of offensive comments during a meeting with ministers. Among them were references to black, female and homosexual players.

The FA Board have responded by appointing a diverse selection panel to secure Clarke’s successor, including Stacey Cartwright as chair, Rosenior and Kate Tinsley.

The organisation insist the process will follow the principles set out in its recently-launched Football Leadership Diversity Code, with hiring “based on merit from a diverse talent pool.”

Former Fulham player Rosenior, who was recently appointed to the FA’s Inclusion Advisory Board, said: “It’s an absolute honour to be asked to be part of the panel to recruit the new chair of the Football Association. I am truly humbled and really looking forward to being involved in making an appointment that is so important to our game.” Cartwright, who is also an independent non-executive director for the FA, added: “I’m incredibly proud to lead the selection panel.

“I believe we have selected a panel that reflects the modern-day FA and the wider game.”

Other panel members are interim FA chair Peter McCormick, Rupinder Bains and Jack Pearce.

The role will be advertised in December and remain open for four weeks before a shortlist is drawn up and an appointment of a candidate with the “necessary character, skills and experience to be successful” is made next spring.
