The appointment of a new manager to Fort William Football Club has been highlighted at Holyrood.

Highlands and Islands MSP Donald Cameron submitted a motion to the Scottish Parliament welcoming the appointment of Shadab Iftikhar, whose footballing career has included posts in the north west of England, Mongolia and the South Pacific.

Mr Cameron said: ‘There can’t be many people whose career has taken them from Wigan to Lochaber via Mongolia and Samoa, so Shadab certainly brings unique experience and perspective to Fort William Football Club.

‘I’m sure Shadab will receive a very warm welcome from the team’s supporters and I wish him every possible success as he takes over the reins at the club.’

Shadab was present at last week’s home game against South Lochaber Thistle at Claggan Park and will begin his tenure at the club on December 27.
