Walsall Chief Executive Stefan Gamble has been appointed to serve on the Board of Directors of the English Football League.
Gamble replaces the outgoing Andy Ambler who is departing following his appointment as Head of Professional Game relations at the Football Association.
Gamble, who previously served as Alternate Director for League One, said: “I am delighted to have been handed this opportunity to work on behalf of all League One clubs and I will endeavour to represent them, and their issues, to the best of my ability during the course of my tenure.
“The EFL and its clubs across the three divisions continue to be faced with many varied challenges and opportunities and as a member of the Board, I hope to be able to make a valuable and lasting contribution that can yield collective benefit.”
EFL Chairman Ian Lenagan said: “I’d like to welcome Stefan to the EFL Board. He brings with him considerable experience having been involved in professional football for over 15 years.
"The majority of that time has been spent as CEO in League One, so he understands the landscape well and this will no doubt prove hugely beneficial to all our clubs in the division and the wider EFL.”
He added: “I’d also like to place on record my thanks to Andy Ambler, who has had made a particularly impressive contribution to the EFL in recent seasons and for that he is widely respected by all our clubs and many more within the game.
"It is no surprise that he is moving on to head up professional game relations at the FA and everyone at the EFL wishes him the very best of luck in the future.”
