“I have been on the board of trustees at the museum for many years, and have been proud to see it develop into the world-class visitor attraction that it is today,” said Penrose.

“I am pleased that Tim will be taking on the role of CEO. His successful track record, plus our combined keen interest in football, should ensure that we can lead the museum to the next stage of its development.”

Desmond said: "In my mind, there is no greater job in museums and attractions, than being the CEO of the National Football Museum in Manchester. I am looking forward to working with the Museum’s highly skilled and experienced trustees, staff, and volunteers, to create new opportunities for visitors to enjoy the history of our national game.”
