Town's Club secretary to represent clubs from Suffolk and London on FA Council
Town’s Club secretary Sally Webb has been elected to join the FA Council for the next 12 months, as a delegate for Suffolk FA.
Sally, who joined the Club in 2000 and succeeded David Rose as secretary in 2003, has been elected as the Division Seven representative, with Bruce Badcock also being chosen to represent Suffolk on the Council.
The Division Seven area covers part of London and the whole of East Anglia. Sally will be representing professional clubs including Town, Arsenal, Cambridge United, Chelsea, Norwich City, Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United and non-league clubs from Great Yarmouth to Southend as well as Suffolk itself.
She replaces the long-serving Peter Barnes, the former Tottenham and West Ham club secretary, who has since been appointed as a vice-president of The Football Association.
Sally said: “I am honoured to be elected as it is a very select group of people, and I hope to be able to bring something from my inside club experience to both the committee and the Council.
“There are approximately 120 members on the Council of which only one-third come from the professional game.”
Sally has been appointed to the membership committee for the coming year while Bruce, who replaced Martin Head as the county’s delegate in June, will serve on the Alliance and FA Trophy committees.
