Manchester United chief executive David Gill is named as the Football Association's new vice-chairman.

Manchester United chief executive David Gill has been appointed as the Football Association's new vice-chairman.

The 55-year-old, who has worked within the FA for the last six years, has been handed the position following a vote carried out by the English governing body's board, which was then given the green light by the council.

"I'm delighted to have been appointed vice-chairman of the Football Association," said Gill.

"The health and success of the Football Association is vital to the future of the game in England and I hope to justify the board's faith in me by helping to shape discussions and actions to deliver that."

Gill, who replaces Sir Dave Richards, will share the position with other vice-chairman Roger Burden.
