Peter Clarke elected to PFA committee

Huddersfield Town captain Peter Clarke has been elected to the PFA management committee.

The experienced defender, who has just been ruled out of action with a knee ligament injury, has been the club's union representative since he joined the Terriers in 2009.

Clarke is looking forward to joining the management committee of the Professional Footballers` Association where he has been elected as one of 10 new management committee members.

England women`s captain Casey Stoney has become the first female member of the committee, and also joining are Adam Barrett (Gillingham), Benoit Assou-Ekotto (QPR), George Friend (Middlesbrough), Grant Holt (Wigan), Matt Jarvis (West Ham), Kolo Toure (Liverpool), Jonathan Walters (Stoke) and Ashley Williams (Swansea).

Former Sheffield Wednesday and Hartlepool player Ritchie Humphreys, currently with Chesterfield, is the new chairman in succession to Clarke Carlisle, who has retired from the game.

"It`s a bit more responsibility, and it means attending more meetings than before, but it`s a role I`m looking forward to," said Clarke.

"The PFA is a wide-reaching organisation which does some fantastic work for players past and present, and we`ll be deliberating over a whole range of issues, such as the anti-racism campaign, coaching, education and women`s football.

"Clarke Carlisle did a very good job as chairman, and I`m sure Ritchie will help take the organisation forward.

"He has played a lot of football across all the divisions and has built up a very good knowledge of the game."
