Futurelink Group are proud to sponsor the Alan Shearer Foundation Golf Challenge

England footballing legend and BBC Match of the Day pundit Alan Shearer has agreed to participate for a second novel and new 18 hole golf challenge. The golf challenge will see Shearer flying across England in one day to play a round of golf over 18 different holes on 18 different courses.

Shearer won the event last year, beating UK entrepreneur and business strategist Feisal Nahaboo on the 17th hole played in Bracknell Berkshire, the town that Nahaboo grew up in. Last year saw the pair raise £20,000, but Nahaboo’s work soon saw Shearer’s charity benefit by a substantial amount. Last year saw planes, trains and automobiles ferry the former Newcastle striker between each hole, dotted around England, but this year Nahaboo has surprised Shearer with a helicopter as the main mode of transport. Apparently, Shearer got very nervy during turbulent times and Nahaboo believes this change will strategically benefit him!

Feisal Nahaboo, known for his entrepreneurial thinking, came up with the idea for a golfing challenge whilst offering to raise funds for Shearer’s charity. Last year the challenge began at Alan’s home golf course Close House in Northumberland and finished on the Crowthorne East Berkshire golf course, where Feisal Nahaboo is a member. Shearer beat Nahaboo in a closely contested competitive match that saw Shearer win 2&1. The latest day will involve a scratch match between Shearer and Nahaboo, with a sponsor joining the pair at each hole as part of a charity fundraising exercise. A range of sponsors have contributed to the event, with The Futurelink Group being the most generous to date. The Professional Group who support business communities across the UK by supporting individuals to build small businesses whilst managing their financial affairs, are delighted to contribute towards the child disability-based charity in the North East. The Alan Shearer Foundation (ASF) is known for its highly specialist disability, respite, residential and social provision for people with complex disabilities and acute sensory impairments. The Futurelink Group spokesman said: “The Group prides itself on working with its clients in developing local economies, whether it be on its business advisory services or through charity fundraising. To be involved in such an event is a great privilege and we hope Shearer wins again!”

Nahaboo said: “I’m delighted that Alan Shearer has agreed to take me on again for this fun challenge to benefit his charity. Over the past year we raised a significant amount that accumulated just short of £100,000. Al has represented both club and country at the highest level and is the all-time Premier League top goal scorer, but I’ve tried to create the ultimate golfing challenge – a round of golf, played within daylight hours, on courses spanning the country, from Newcastle to Crowthorne, with 16 other courses in between. Last year it rained and it was windy in the skies and it was an experience to see Shearer hold tight for his life! I would pay to see his face again. Hopefully the distractions will be a leveller once again. Al knows he has to beat me as I will never let him forget!

I’d like to thank former England cricketer John Morris for organising last year’s event and with the planning for this years challenge. John takes on the ideas and brings it to life. He is a good man who is extremely respected by both Al and I for the contribution he continues to make. I would also like to thank all the courses that have agreed to help as without them we would not have the opportunity to do this challenge and raise funds for the Alan Shearer Foundation.”

Alan Shearer said: “Last year’s challenge was a memorable event as we were delighted with the contributions to the ASF whilst the golf was exciting and went down to the wire. I know Feisal is planning his revenge this year and no doubt there will be even more twists and turns over the 15 hours of golf planned. I’d like to personally thank all our sponsors. We appreciate their efforts and generosity.”

The Futurelink Group golf challenge will take place on 4th September 2014 and is expected to be widely covered by both local and national media once again.

“For me, Futurelink Group was the best solution, as a foreign and a lack of knowledge of the UK rules, they were extremely helpful in all aspects. Always fast in answering all my questions. I almost didn’t do anything and they put me on track to invoice and receive my payments. I can fully recommend them.”
