Heather Rabbatts and former Chelsea star Graham Le Saux head up FA panel for inclusion in football

eNewsletter

Football Association board member Heather Rabbatts will chair a group aimed at widening inclusion in football.

The Inclusion Advisory Board (IAB) holds its first meeting in January and will oversee equality matters. The 10-person group also includes former Chelsea player Graeme Le Saux and ex-Derby defender Michael Johnson.

The IAB hopes to widen diversity in the sport and clarify anti-discrimination regulations and sanctions.

Soeaking on the new panel, Rabbatts said, "This group is vital for meeting the future aims and ambitions of a modern FA."

Rabbatts is currently the only female member of the FA board, and has criticised Greg Dyke's commission into the national team for its lack of female and black members, which led to Mancehster United player Rio Ferdinand being added to the panel.

The IAB group she will oversee will monitor the delivery of Football's Inclusion and Anti-Discrimination Action Plan between 2013 and 2017.
