Folkestone chairman Paul Morgan has called on the club's fans to pull together - or he will walk away.
Morgan has been at the helm for nearly two years but will turn his back on Invicta if the board continue to get stick for their efforts.
In an open statement issued on Invicta's website, the Folkestone chief has stated his intentions.
He wrote: "I have sat down with my family and discussed my future with the football club and sadly to say if the negativity (and) criticism does not stop then I will be standing down and walking away from this football club.
"This club does not need this kind of treatment from certain supporters and it is affecting / damaging this great football club which is such a shame.
"So please let's all pull together and get this club back to the fun friendly club I wanted to be part of."
Morgan has questioned what more progress Folkestone could make during his time at the helm.
"Over the last say 18 months I would say things have turned very sour and bitter at the football club," he said.
"There has been a lot of negativity, criticising of board members, players, how the club is run etc, which is very hurtful and very unfair.
"Every board member does not get paid a penny they plough in their own money when required to help the football club and give up a lot of there time so I really think it is unfair to criticise them.
"If the club could not field a team, the facilities were poor, the pitch was unplayable I really could accept the criticism and accept changes should be made at board level but it’s not we can field a strong side, the facilities are fantastic, the pitch is the best condition its been in for years so why all the negativity, criticising of board members and the way the club is run?"
Folkestone are eighth in Bostik Premier, just two points outside the play-off places, ahead of this Saturday's trip to Leatherhead.
