Louise Dyas


I moved to Hull in 1994 to take up a new job and I am still with the same development company almost 30 years later.  My role as Director includes strategic, financial, personnel and problem solving duties. 

Kingswood United CIO covers the community area in which our company operates and so I am able to promote and assist in the development of the CIO.

I have been a Director of a large RC Academy Trust Board for the past 14 years.

This has given me a huge personal interest in promoting education, sport and positive development of children and young people and provided a range of skill sets and experience.

I undertake my civic duties with total respect for the Nolan Principles and approach everything with a ‘duty of care’ ethos.  I am very organised and communicate effectively.

I have a strong belief in community and social welfare, I am passionate about the need to improve the outcomes for children and young people, especially in areas of deprivation, bringing hope and dreams to those less fortunate.

Dave Cone


My name is Dave Cone. I’m an Engineering Supervisor in a local manufacturing company. I joined Kingswood United back in 2019 when my daughter joined a team. Since then I have been a coach for Under 11 girls team and last year I went onto starting a new Under 7’s boys team from our successful soccer school.

I joined the trustee team as I really wanted drive the legacy of Kingswood United into something more than just football. Reaching out to the local community and letting children have fun is the main focus for me.
