FOOTBALLERS FROM the second cohort of the ‘On The Board’ effective board member programme graduated on Wednesday evening (April 15).

Brighton manager Chris Hughton, former England international Ugo Ehiogu and ex-Chelsea and Southampton defender Ken Monkou were amongst a host of individuals in attendance at the ceremony in Wembley Stadium.

‘On The Board’, was created by leading governance consultant Karl George MBE, founder of the Effective Board Member Programmes in conjunction with Sports On Board to help players and others involved in football to progress from the pitch to the boardroom.

The graduation of players throws a spotlight on the continued commitment of the PFA and The FA, and partners across the game, to tackle the lack of diversity on boards within the sport.
