We have a vacancy on the FSA National Council for a representative from our EFL League 1 and 2 Network, and voting is now open.
There are four candidates standing for the vacancy – Manny Dominguez, Peter Leatham, Mark Porter and Robert Whittaker – their election statements can be found at this link.
Voting is open now at this link, and will close at 5pm on Tuesday 17th September.

You may vote for only one individual. The result of the ballot is subject to ratification at the meeting of the EFL League 1 and 2 Network on 19th September.
