MICHAEL TATTERSALL has been named as the new chief executive officer of the National League following 12 years with the Football League.
Tattersall today took up his new role at the league’s offices in Birmingham after a long stint as deputy operations director at the Football League.
He is well known to the board of the National League and they are hoping he will assist with the continued development of the competition.
Tattersall said: “I am delighted to join the National League at this exciting time in its development as a football competition.
“I am grateful to have been offered this opportunity and will be working hard with my colleagues on the board to build upon the successes and strengths of the organisation.”
Chairman Brian Barwick added: “Recruiting someone of Michael’s experience is confirmation that along with the rebranding of the Football Conference to the National League this year, this demonstrates our aspirations and ambitions.
“We welcome Michael and I am sure our member clubs will look forward to working closely with him to enhance our position within the game.”
