Following a further restructure of the Operations Division, The FA and Alan Ferguson, Head of Grounds & Estates, have mutually agreed to part company.
The FA's pitches are highly regarded throughout the game, having won several industry awards in recent years, and everyone at The FA would like to wish Alan well going forward.
Alan asked The FA to share the following statement with FA staff and colleagues at St. George's Park and Wembley: "I'd like to thank The FA for the opportunity to practice at two top venues. I have really enjoyed my time at both St. George's Park and Wembley Stadium, where I have been fortunate to work with a great group of people."
"I would like to thank both the playing and non-playing staff throughout The FA for the support you have given the grounds teams over the past six years. I also thank the various partners who have supported all projects and allowed us to develop both venues to a high standard."
"Finally, I would like to pay specific tribute to my grounds staff for their tireless work all year round and wish everyone at The FA the very best wishes for the future."
