Caroline Barker commented, “With the new season just kicking off, I can’t wait to join the Board. I’m looking forward to bringing some of my media background and work with fans groups to the table and help build on some of the great work already established in media partnerships and relationships throughout football.”
The National League Chairman, Brian Barwick, commented, “We are delighted to have Caroline on board. She will provide fresh-thinking in this new independent role and lend her expertise to the strategic development of The National League.”
