Message from London FA CEO - Paul Bickerton
I’m delighted to have been asked to say a few words on the new Hackney & Leyton league website. At London FA we are indebted to the many volunteers and committee members who have kept this great league running successfully for such a long time (since 1947 no less) and I would like to place on record how appreciative we are for their contribution to grassroots football in London.
The 2018-19 season was one of great change at the London FA, not just from a leadership perspective with the introduction of myself as CEO and a new Chair in James Middlehurst, but also through the significant governance reforms approved by our members at an Extraordinary General Meeting in January 2019. We are very grateful to all those members who supported us to agree a package of reforms that not only ensures that the LFA continues to adhere to the highest standards of corporate governance but will also connect us more closely to the grassroots game.
