Pearson, who served on the board between June 2006 and June 2007, was voted in as one of the three Coca-Cola Championship representatives to sit on the eight-man panel, replacing the outgoing Doncaster following the Canaries' relegation and his departure from Carrow Road.

The Football League board consists of six divisional representatives elected by the 72 member clubs, plus two independent directors. The divisional representatives include three directors from Championship clubs, two from League One and one from League Two.

Pearson joins David Sheepshanks (Ipswich), Terry Robinson (Sheffield United), Peter Powell (Colchester), Lorraine Rogers (Tranmere) and Tony Kleanthous (Barnet) on the board. Chairman Lord Mawhinney and independent non-executive director Ian Ritchie complete the line-up.
