Amateur FA Appoint New Chief Executive Officer

Amateur Football Alliance appoint Jason Kilby as new Chief Executive Officer.

Following the decision of long standing Chief Executive Mike Brown to retire at the end of the season, Amateur Football Alliance is delighted to announce the appointment of Jason Kilby as his successor.

Chairman of the Alliance, Tony Julien, who has led the recruitment process, said: "We are delighted to welcome Jason and believe that he is the person who can build on the legacy Mike will be leaving and who can continue to take the AFA forward. It has been a long process and I am delighted that Jason has accepted the role.  

“Jason’s vision, experience and knowledge from previous roles with Mayfield Athletic and Old Woodhouseians (both AFA clubs), the Middlesex and Surrey County FAs and Brentford and Millwall Community Trusts, coupled with his business experience in accountancy, make his appointment complete sense for the future development of grassroots football in the AFA.”

Jason said: “I’m delighted that I have been selected to take on the role of Chief Executive and the exciting challenge that now awaits me. Due to the fantastic work undertaken over a number of years, I am in the fortunate position of taking over the running of what is a successful and respected Association.  

"I look forward to working with the staff, directors, council members and the wider AFA football stakeholders, with the aim of continuing to take grassroots football forward across the Alliance."

Jason will officially take over as Chief Executive from Tuesday 20 February 2018 and Mike Brown will officially step down at the end of the season.
