‘Frustrated’ Dame Heather Rabbatts to stand down from FA board

Dame Heather Rabbatts has announced she is to step down as a non-executive director of the Football Association and revealed she “remains frustrated” at the lack of black coaches in the sport.

The 61-year-old became the FA’s first female non-executive director in 2012, sat on the FA board and was part of numerous committees.

Rabbatts, who was awarded a DBE in 2016, also chaired the FA Inclusion Advisory Board and was a long-term advocate of increasing the number of black and ethnic minority numbers involved in football.
