End of the board?

Just to be clear, the Club does not actually have a body called “The Board”. Overall control rests with the club’s directors and we naturally do not have representation at their meetings.

I’d like to thank the board for clarifying this!

So purely out of interest what is the relationship between Kingstonian’s “director of football” and the deputy chair of the supporters’ club?

Funny that, as the club's accounts on Companies House say there were approved by 'The board'

So either the SC report is wrong, or the club’s accounts at companies house talk about a fictitious group - let’s hope it’s this report that’s wrong !

The phrase board of directors is also used in multiple club tweets, news stories and programme articles, so this is really bizarre.

The (misplaced) pedantry shouldn't distract from the real issues in this report and the other documents though - chiefly, a collapse in the SC's income that further evidences how badly our football club is becoming hollowed out.

Nearly every income line is down, some significantly - whether it's use of the coaches, people playing the gambling games, donations or events (which is down to zero). All of it points to a huge loss of interest in this football club over the last season.

The SC does, perhaps for the first time, at least appear to now recognise a) the scale of the problem and b) that Mitcham has been a disaster. And that we need to get away from Mitcham not when (if) we get a permanent ground; but before that with a more suitable groundshare. That is, at least, a start.

Isn't a collective of directors who all direct the same thing (direct to oblivion our case) known as 'a board of directors'?

Or in short hand: "the board".

If not the case then what is the correct term for a collective of directors?

A gaggle of directors? A clouder of directors? A flock of directors? A clusterfuck of directors? Oh hey that last one sounds quite apt to be fair.

Why not? I'd always believed this was the case. It seems like one of the best reasons for having an official Supporters' Club in the first place. And why does the Chair think this is the 'natural' state of affairs?
