FEISAL Nahaboo, founder of Featherstone Rovers’ main shirt sponsors Probiz, has agreed to join the club’s strategic management board to support their bid for a Super League licence.
Mr Nahaboo said: “Fev’s initial plans for a Super League return looks more promising than anything I’ve seen or heard.
“It’s exciting times for the region. I will help Mark Campbell, Paul Taylor and Craig Poskitt develop the club from the sidelines and I hope to share advice and strategies deployed elsewhere that has seen entities rise to substantial heights. Key businessman and key ‘influences’ will also be supporting the bid.
“Fev fans should be rejoicing today. I believe there’s a brilliant chance the Fev v Cas derby in Super League will be back soon. The local region will prosper from significant new investment with new jobs and new infrastructure. This will develop the social and economic welfare of both sets of fans and I am looking forward to offering my support.
“For the record, I would like to thank Fev for making me feel wanted and I hope I can contribute partially to their on-going dominance outside Super League. The club seems to be in good hands with Mark Campbell. He will do what it takes to return to Super League. He has a brilliant attitude and on efforts Fev will have a substantial campaign.”
Rovers chairman Mark Campbell (pictured) said: “To attract somebody of the calibre of Feisal to Featherstone Rovers is fantastic news.
“Feisal brings a wealth of experience and many contacts to the club which is not only great for Featherstone Rovers but the whole of Rugby League in general. I’m sure Feisal’s business acumen will be hugely beneficial not only to Featherstone Rovers and Destination Super League but also for the town of Featherstone and the surrounding area.
“I’m really looking forward to working with Feisal, he has shown great enthusiasm since becoming a partner last year for the club and the sport of Rugby League. Feisal can see the club has potential and realistic ambitions of returning to top flight rugby league.”
