Horne to quit FA after 11 years

Football Association general secretary Alex Horne has announced he is to leave the organisation at the end of January.

Horne joined the FA in 2004 as finance director and, in 2006, was appointed Wembley Stadium's managing director.

He became the FA's chief operating officer in July 2008 and was a leading figure in the St George's Park National Football Centre development.

Horne took up his current post in 2010.

"After 11 fantastic years I have decided to look for a change of direction and I will be leaving the FA at the end of January," he told Press Association Sport.

England centre Manu Tuilagi has been ruled out of next month's autumn series because of a groin injury, his club Leicester have announced.

Tuilagi limped off after 15 minutes of Saturday's 25-18 Champions Cup victory over Ulster and will now miss the Tests against New Zealand, South Africa, Samoa and Australia.

"I'd be very surprised if Manu plays any part in the autumn. He'll clearly be missing for a few weeks as a minimum," Leicester director of rugby Richard Cockerill said.
