By Community | June 14, 2013
Notts County have announced that Chief Executive Jim Rodwell has been confirmed as the new League 1 representative on the Board of the Football League.
The position, medicine which is nominated through a vote of all League 1 clubs, saw Rodwell elected to represent the interests of the member clubs on the Football League Board from next season.
The Notts CEO said of his election: “Obviously I am tremendously proud and honoured to have been elected by my League 1 counterparts to represent the Football League in its 125th year.
“It’s a great honour for me and a great honour for Notts County Football Club, I think it reflects particularly well on the work that we’ve done at the football club in the last three years, I think it’s a reflection on that as much as anything else.
“My role is very much to support and give a voice to the League 1 clubs at Football League Board level,” he added.
“I don’t just represent Notts County, in fact on occasions the view of other League 1 clubs may be at odds with the view of Notts County, as it has been on occasions, but nevertheless, my job is to represent the whole of League 1 and it’s something that I’ll do diligently and with great pride.”
