The GFA's new Vice President believes the game is moving in the right direction but says its future development will require collaboration with the clubs and careful management. Paul Lyon was elected by the Football Association's membership last week at an EGM, having stood unopposed. The local headteacher, who is due to retire in a few months, hopes to improve the product locally, and believes the focus needs to be on developing the game further and creating the right attitude.
Paul Lyon is looking forward to the challenges ahead and says he is extremely excited to be working alongside the GFA's CEO, Dennis Beiso, and the Council's new President, Michael Llamas.
The national squad is preparing for its next Euro Qualifier, facing Scotland away at Hampden Park on the 29th of March.
