New Zealand Football president resigns after scathing review into organisation

Another high profile member of New Zealand Football has stood down, with president Deryck Shaw understood to have handed in his resignation today.

Shaw had been under pressure in his role as president, following the release of Phillipa Muir's review into the conduct and governance of New Zealand Football, released last week.

The review stated that Shaw and the executive committee were too "hands off," with half of Muir's recommendations relating to the board.

He is the second board member to walk away since the review's release, with Jon Ormond quitting last week in the wake of Muir's findings.
