Nahaboo quashes rumours as search for Head Coach continues
Thursday 8th May 2014
Major announcement tomorrow at 9am
Majority Shareholder Feisal Nahaboo can confirm that the search for Head Coach continues. Nahaboo said: "A number of experienced and prominent names have thrown their CV's into the ring to be considered for the position. We've been flattered, we were always going to be associated with various experienced and prolific names but there is a shortlist that the club is looking at and we haven't gone beyond that at this stage. The professionalism and confidentiality inside the club has been exemplary as our ideal candidates have not even been mentioned in the press and that's how it should remain. Our fans need to be patient. The appointment of our next coach will be the right one for the club and such Head Coach will build with the club and share the club's new vision and ambition and we know where the potential and hunger is and we are in close discussions with them. Those on the shortlist are all well connected coaches who have experience in various Super League Clubs and will help attract the player with the right attitude to this club. The Head Coach will be a fantastic manager who will win our dressing room, not for what he has accomplished, but for who he is, what he stands for and what transparent qualities he brings to the dressing room. There's no rush. We have faith in Danny Evans and our squad. They have rallied together and we expect a big response from them this Sunday at Sheffield. Much of our talent will be renewing contracts. They've been told and they are excited. There have been mass developments since Monday's announcements. A new player will be joining this week, with more to follow in the next few weeks. The biggest news for our fans will be announced at 9am tomorrow morning. This will signal investors' real intent in building Featherstone into a long-term, self-sustainable club with 'lipstick monies' that place no threat to the future of the club, but instead gives the club a pot to go for top league rugby. The investors have ambition to win, and commercially it's a good time to build and win honours with a community-based club built on solid values. We have a fantastic foundation that delivers so much to our local community and beyond which the trustees plan to grow year on year. The world is changing and there is demand for community-run clubs. Men from the City are attracted to our club because they recognise the integrity of the game and the new incentives introduced by the RFL."
