The National League has confirmed that their chief executive Michael Tattersall is leaving his current role on New Years’ Eve.


Mr Tattersall has overseen a period of sustained growth of the competition, increasing its profile and commercial value since joining the organisation in November 2015.

The 45-year-old has also been influential in the integration of an innovative six-team play-off structure and the formation of the National League Football Academy.

“It has been a privilege to serve as the CEO of The National League,” said Mr Tattersall in a statement.

“I would like to thank my colleagues, our clubs, our commercial partners and the wider football family for their support and fellowship over the last five years.

Brian Barwick, the chairman of The National League, said: “Michael has served the National League and its member clubs with great distinction since joining the organisation in 2015.

“He has shown outstanding professionalism, a comprehensive understanding of the sport – it’s competitive framework and associated business, all building on his life-long affection for the game.

“I have enjoyed a tremendous working relationship with him and, along with my fellow National League board members, wish him well for the future.”
