Greg Clarke’s appointment as Football Association chairman was officially ratified on Wednesday.

Clarke was approved for the role by the FA Board on July 22 and a full meeting of the FA Council at Wembley confirmed him in the post vacated by Greg Dyke.

David Gill had been operating in the position on an interim basis but will now step aside and revert back to his regular duties as vice-chairman.

Clarke said: “I’m delighted to be confirmed as the next chairman of the FA and I’m relishing the challenge. 

“My experience as a council member for the FA has given me an insight into the excellent work this organisation undertakes at every level of the game. 

“It’s an honour for me to be joining at such a pivotal point in its recent history and I’d like to thank the board and the council for their continued support.”

Clarke’s first day in the role is September 2 and he will travel to Slovakia to watch Sam Allardyce’s maiden match in charge of England three days later.

He added: “The FA has the ability to have the most positive effect on football in this country – from the grassroots game all the way through to the men’s and women’s senior England teams. 

“I’m looking forward to continuing that good work and playing my part in representing an FA that we can all be proud of.”
