- The former Blackburn Rovers footballer, James Featherstone, is to join All Star Minerals as a non-executive director.

He was a member of the squad when the club won the Premier League in 2005.

Mr Featherstone's career was cut short by injury, which led to him starting a career in investment banking with Anglo Irish Bank, and then with Investec.

In 2009, he left his position as Head of Treasury with Investec to form OmniSports Management, which represents a growing number of sports professionals, including many footballers.
