Former player and manager Roy McFarland is among three new appointments to Derby County's board of directors.

McFarland, 69, won two league titles with the Rams as a player in the 1970s and had a two-year spell as boss in the 1990s.

Former club president John Kirkland, who sat on the board between 1981 and 2002, has returned to the club.

They are joined by David Williams, a lawyer and business adviser to Rams chairman Mel Morris.

The rest of the board includes Morris, chief operating officer John Vicars and chief financial officer Stephen Pearce.

"These appointments provide us with a group rich in talent, knowledge, experience and love of the club," Morris told Derby County's website.
