Clark Expected To Be Named As New NFFC Chairman
Frank Clark is set to be announced as the successor to Nigel Doughty as chairman of NFFC. Doughty stood down from his role last week, in the aftermath of manager Steve McClaren's resignation.
Clark is currently Vice President of the League Managers' Association and is a widely respected figure throughout the game. He's expected to maintain his role with the LMA whilst working for NFFC.
The first job for Clark, will be to appoint a new manager for the club and a decision on that front is expected early this week.
Clark will be a popular choice amongst fans and will be fondly remembered for a successful period as manager of the Reds', between 1993-1996. He won promotion back to the FA Carling Premiership in his first season, followed by third place and qualification for the UEFA Cup the following year. He was also a member of the European Cup winning team in 1979.
