England women's captain Casey Stoney has become the first female member of the Professional Footballers' Association's management committee, reports BBC Sport. The 31-year-old, who played for Lincoln Ladies last season, has won 116 England caps.
"It is an honour and a privilege to be appointed and I'm really looking forward to the new role," she said.
"I want to take women's football forward. This enables us to have a voice for the women's game and spread awareness of the great things the PFA do and can offer."
