David Gregson and Tim Score have also joined the selection panel.

Kate Tinsley will step up to lead the Football Association's search for a new chair, the governing body has announced.

Tinsley is an independent non-executive director of the FA and was an original member of the panel put together to find Greg Clarke's replacement.

Tinsley replaces Stacey Cartwright as chair of the selection panel, which has now expanded to seven members with the appointment of David Gregson and Tim Score as independents.

Gregson is a former chair of the Lawn Tennis Association and an independent non-executive director of the Women's Super League. Score is the independent chair of the FA's audit committee,

Tinsley said: "It's an honour to be asked to step forward and chair the selection panel during this important time for the organisation.

"We have a very strong and experienced selection panel in place to help identify a new chair that will best represent the modern-day values of the FA."

Clarke resigned last month after making a series of offensive remarks at an appearance before the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport committee.

The FA confirmed recruitment firm Egon Zehnder would lead the search alongside the panel, which also includes Derby coach Liam Rosenior.

The FA said Cartwright had left the board and her position on the selection panel "to pursue other interests" and that the process to appoint a new senior independent director for the FA board would be made in due course.

Cartwright said: "I have very much enjoyed my time on the FA board and leave behind some great colleagues. I wish everyone well at the FA for the future and for the search for the new chair."
