First woman board member re-elected onto Football League

Tranmere Rovers director Lorraine Rogers has been re-elected onto the Football League's board of directors.

Rogers - the first woman to join the board in its 122 year history when she was voted on in 2000/01 - won a third term after taking 68% of the vote against candidates from Walsall and Southampton.

"It is vital that the views of clubs in the lower leagues are represented on the Football League board of directors and I am delighted to have been re-elected by the League One clubs," Rogers told Tranmere's official website.

"It is an important time for the Football League, especially with the financial challenges in the game and the widening gap between the Championship clubs and those in Leagues One and Two.

"I'm particularly concerned about the impact the solidarity and parachute payments deal with the Premier League will have on the Football League."
