Davis on Dario's FA commission role
Steve Davis says the appointment of Dario Gradi to the new FA Commission looking into the state of the English game will only be a good thing going forward. Dario will join the likes of the FA Chairman Greg Dyke, the Football League Chairman Greg Clarke, the former England managers Howard Wilkinson and Glenn Hoddle and the ex-England and Leeds United defender Danny Mills as part of the panel.
Steve Davis says the 72-year-old Gradi arguably one of the most knowledgeable minds in the game when it comes to Youth development after a coaching career spanning 50 years.
Steve told the club’s official web-site: “I think it is about time that the FA really got Dario involved. He has had an outstanding career when it comes to developing young players. He has worked with top players and he has produced players that have been good enough to play International football.
“Dario spoke to me about it and that he had been picked to be involved and it can only be good for the country. He has worked closely with the FA in the past when it comes to coaching and he knows how they work.
“Hopefully, he will get the chance to make an impact and he is never too old to offer his experience. He has that information and hopefully the commission can get together, offer up their ideas and they can come to a solution.”
