Board members

The Dons Trust Board (DTB) and Football Club Board (FCB) work closely to give the Trust and the club unified, strategic leadership and direction.

There is a clear line of accountability running from the football club’s directors, through the club’s CEO, and up to the fully elected DTB which is, in turn, accountable to the membership as a whole.

Within this framework, the role of the DTB is to set and agree strategic direction and to scrutinise the performance of the FCB.

The DTB consists of nine elected members, including a Chair, Vice Chair and Treasurer, and one co-opted member.

The names of individual board members are listed below in alphabetical order, plus the areas of DT activity in which they take the lead role. To email any particular member, just click on their name.
