The Scottish Football Association has announced that Neil Doncaster has replaced Ian Maxwell on the Professional Game Board.
Maxwell resigned from his position at Tuesday`s SFA board meeting and Scottish Professional Football League chief executive Doncaster was elected unopposed as his replacement.
Partick Thistle chief executive Maxwell resigned from the board because he has applied to replace Stewart Regan as Scottish FA chief executive.
Maxwell was not part of the SFA board sub-committee tasked with assembling a shortlist of candidates for the vacancy, but decided to leave for the purposes of transparency during the process.
SFA President Alan McRae said: I would like to thank Ian Maxwell for his valuable contributions to the work of our Board, in particular, the part played by him during the recruitment of our national team manager.
I am pleased to welcome Neil Doncaster onto our Board to replace Ian.
Neil`s experience in the game should be of great benefit to the Scottish FA and I look forward to working with him and the other directors to drive the game in this country forward.
Doncaster added: I am very grateful for the support of the Scottish FA Board and look forward to Scotland`s two main footballing bodies working together more closely than ever before for the good of the entire game.
