Geoff Thompson pledged to bat for English football after his re-election for a second term as chairman of the Football Association.
Thompson was elected unopposed for the role he first took on four years ago.
He said: "I will do everything in my powers to promote English football both at home and abroad."
Thompson, who was also acting chairman of the FA in 1999, was re-elected to
the Uefa executive committee earlier this year.
Other elections at the FA's summer meeting at Slaley Hall in Northumberland saw Roger Burden and Peter Hough re-elected to the FA board.
Mike Rawding, from East Riding, was voted on to replace the retiring Alan Turvey as national game representatives alongside Ray Kiddell, David Henson and Barry Bright of the Kent FA.
Bright chaired Rio Ferdinand's disciplinary charge hearing after the Manchester United defender failed to take a drugs test.
The Premier League representatives on the FA board will be league chairman Dave Richards,
Arsenal vice-chairman David Dein, Bolton chairman Phil Gartside and Southampton chairman Rupert Lowe.
The Football League will continue to be represented by Ipswich chairman David Sheepshanks and his Colchester counterpart Peter Heard.
