Here is my best explanation:

'this?' is the definition.
The definition suggests a singular noun which matches the answer.

'opening for surrey vital to get on' is the wordplay.
'opening for' suggests taking the first letters.
'vital' becomes 'core'.
'to get on' becomes 'board' ('board' can be a synonym of 'get on').
The first letter of 'surrey' is 's'.
's'+'core'+'board'='SCOREBOARD'
