Featherstone Rovers: Feisal Nahaboo releases statement

Former majority shareholder of Featherstone Rovers, Feisal Nahaboo, has released a statement explaining why he has left his post with the club.

He said: “The fans need to know what the players know. I was 110 per cent behind the region.

“I believe the resources being made available and the strategy deployed would have got the club into Super League.

“The players and coaching staff believed that. As did most Directors. I’ve told the club subject to amicable discussions over the next seven days I will keep door open but believe Mark Campbell is the man to lead Fev.

“I did my bit, the fans are with him understandably so walking when in love, was the only way. The Championship has become more difficult and fans should be patient.”

Mark Campbell also released a statement, saying: “The club is proud to have had a financial supporter in Feisal. To show his commitment he left Brazil with celebrity friends to travel home to drive six hours to Cumbria for the Workington game.

“He was committed to helping the club progress. Big personalities who have built big businesses sometimes don’t agree with slow growth and old habits and it’s normal to have differences but Nahaboo is obviously offended and we respect his wishes and will continue dialogue with him in the next few days.

“I personally thank him for his support that has helped club reach successes in recent times. I’d also like to thank Craig in his time at Featherstone as we’ve seen revenues grow across the business year on year and wish him well in the future.”
