The Chairman of The Football League, Greg Clarke, said: “I’m delighted to welcome Andrew to the Board of The Football League. The experience and knowledge he has gained during the past six seasons at Milton Keynes Dons and, before that, 11 seasons at Norwich City will make him a great addition. Andrew also brings with him a considerable amount of commercial and marketing expertise and chaired the League’s Revenue & Attendance Working Group between 2006 and 2008. I very much look forward to working with him.”
