Dave Boyle

Dave Boyle joined Supporters Direct in 2000, after a brief career in Higher Education and an even briefer one in local government. He is currently the organisation’s Chief Executive, and has written and spoken widely on football, mutuality, co-operation, member engagement and sports economics.
He was vice-chair of the Football Supporters Federation from 2001-03, and recently sat on the Government’s panel investigating the impact of sports betting on sports integrity. Far more entertainingly, he was also a script advisor to the series 3-5 of Footballer Wives.
