Neil Doncaster voted onto SFA board after Ian Maxwell steps down

Ian Maxwell has stepped down from his position on the board of the Scottish Football Association to be replaced by Neil Doncaster, the governing body has announced.

Maxwell has been replaced on the board by Scottish Professional Football League chief executive Doncaster, who was voted in by the Professional Game Board.

Partick Thistle chief executive Maxwell is one of the favourites to replace Stewart Regan as chief executive at the SFA, after he stepped down from the role at the beginning of February, with Andrew McKinlay holding the role temporarily.

A statement from the governing body said: “At today’s Professional Game Board meeting, it was confirmed that Ian Maxwell had stepped down with immediate effect from the board of the Scottish FA.

“Neil Doncaster was elected unopposed by the Professional Game Board as his replacement.”

Alan McRae, SFA president added: “I would like to thank Ian Maxwell for his valuable contributions to the work of our board, in particular, the part played by him during the recruitment of our national team manager.

“I am pleased to welcome Neil Doncaster onto our board to replace Ian.

“Neil’s experience in the game should be of great benefit to the Scottish FA and I look forward to working with him and the other directors to drive the game in this country forward.”
