Rugby League: Have Featherstone fans got their club back?

Michael Griffiths and Simon Barraclough

"It will all end in tears," some Featherstone Rovers Rugby League football club supporters said when news broke of major new investors and signings at the club. Months later, majority "B" shareholder Feisal Nahaboo and chief executive Craig Poskitt walked away from the club.

Featherstone, a small ex-mining community, is proud of its professional rugby league team. The smallest town in Britain to have one, Rovers won the game's biggest prize, the challenge cup, at Wembley stadium three times. It produces local youngsters and causes upsets against more fashionable clubs.

At a packed fans forum after Feisal and Craig's departure, Rovers chairman Mark Campbell reported concerns about apparent inaccurate financial information being presented by the finance director and Feisal's attempt to take over an elected board. The fallout led to legal threats and then Feisal's departure.

Fans raised questions on the club's financial plight after the departure of the majority shareholder. Feisal's shares are owned by Probiz Excellence Limited. Probiz (and its sister companies) offer "a range of added-value solutions for business owners and individuals from general accountancy to business advisory services to wealth management opportunities," says its website.

Despite threats of winding up orders, however, the club is not on the verge of financial collapse. The chairman stressed that the club does not have to buy back the shares Probiz acquired. Campbell also pointed out that all full and part time player contracts already signed will be honoured.

Campbell's answers seemed to reassure fans. The club is a limited company but many major decisions are still in the fans' control, who can own one "A" share each. The fans control the land the club owns and elects representatives onto the board.

And although Featherstone Rovers may not have the money to make the club a force in the game again, we've been through hard times before and will again pull through by our own efforts together.

Coronavirus crisis - Finance appeal

The coronavirus crisis has laid bare the class character of society in numerous ways. It is making clear to many that it is the working class that keeps society running, not the CEOs of major corporations.

The results of austerity have been graphically demonstrated as public services strain to cope with the crisis.

The government has now ripped up its 'austerity' mantra and turned to policies that not long ago were denounced as socialist. But after the corona crisis, it will try to make the working class pay for it, by trying to claw back what has been given.

  • The Socialist Party's material is more vital than ever, so we can continue to report from workers who are fighting for better health and safety measures, against layoffs, for adequate staffing levels, etc.
  • Our 'fighting coronavirus workers' charter', outlines a programme to combat the virus and protect workers' living conditions.
  • When the health crisis subsides, we must be ready for the stormy events ahead and the need to arm workers' movements with a socialist programme - one which puts the health and needs of humanity before the profits of a few.
Inevitably, during the crisis we have not been able to sell the Socialist and raise funds in the ways we normally would.
We therefore urgently appeal to all our viewers to donate to our special coronavirus appeal.
