Greg Dyke: Appointment as FA chairman ratified

Dyke will replace David Bernstein on July 13, who is leaving the post after two-and-a-half years.

He was a director of Manchester United in the late 1990s, and since 2006 he has been non-executive chairman of Brentford football club

Dyke, who will relinquish his role with the Bees at the end of the season, said: "I'm flattered that the FA council has unanimously supported my appointment as chairman of the FA and I am looking forward to taking up the role in July.

"I will be outlining my priorities for the future of the FA in due course."
