Richard Neal has been appointed as the new chief executive of Suffolk FA.

The 34-year-old, who is currently youth sport manager at Oxfordshire Sport & Physical Activity and a board member for the Association for Physical Education, will take up his new post at the start of September.

He said: “I am honoured to have been appointed to such a prestigious position. Football is uniquely able to engage a huge number of people, and I relish the chance to improve and develop the provision offered across the county.”

Neal will head up a restructured team at Suffolk FA. Darryn Marsh, football services officer (regulation & welfare), will become office manager as well as continuing in charge of the Football Services Department.

Phil Barber, who previously worked in the Football Services Department, is re-joining the county FA. He will return in early August alongside Becca Bolton, the new Girls’ & Women’s Football Development Officer.
