  1. The New Raith Rovers Thread

    Annex 4 then states that training payment levels will be set across four categories, and each national association categorises their clubs and determines a multiplication factor based on how many players need trained to get one professional. The player costs are shown here. According to the document, the SFA has to categories clubs across Cat 2, 3 and 4. Club categorisations are then meant to be published on the FIFA website but I can't find them. Under the SFA club licensing, Rovers are categorised as "Bronze" (from Platinum through to Entry), and for Youth, it just says FEFA. So, not much clearer in how much we'd get, but a minimum of €10k per year. Wiki says he was with us from 2013-2017, so €40k? (And FEFA getting any money if he was trained there before Raith?) On Drysdale's comments, maybe as well as a sell-on clause, or 'number of appearances for The Rangers' clause, there was hopefully a 'left you because you couldn't afford his wages clause'.

    Not trained all week: Bobby Barr, Kevin McHattie and..... Scott Robertson!
  3. Aaron Lennox is pretty good too, although he's permanently injured.

    What state is the pitch in at the moment? Has there been any noticeable difference in condition since Craig Surgeon left? On watching the Airdrie highlights I thought that the pitch already looked pretty heavy considering how early in the season it is.

    As far as I can tell, he has a very small shareholding in RRFC Ltd and RR Holdings Ltd, but none in New RR Ltd (i.e. as a fan shareholder, rather than major investor). His place on the board will have been as he was CEO rather than a major shareholder.

    The SPFL would have been paying the petrol money for their meetings. Eric Drysdale lost his place on the board when the club got relegated. (As did Leeann Dempster, when Hibs got promoted). The SPFL board is made up of three Premiership representatives, two from the Championship and one for League 1/2 (the Stranraer chairman).

    No, although saw them saying a while ago they were preparing a new celebration GIF for twitter so maybe they were testing it? Is it bad...?!

    You wait 2282 pages for somebody to say "myopic" and it's used twice within an hour....

    No. Pretty crumby defending by him, missed header from their cross.

    Doesn't actually say a lot. Although this is relatively interesting: So read into that that Sim won't have us running at a loss, even if that means League 1 part-time football if we don't get back up this season.

    Montrose have signed Sean Dillon! Am sure he could have done a decent job for us.

    Some signing!!

    How many come to the games by train? I manage a handful of home games each season and get the train to Kirkcaldy and Stark's Park is pretty convenient for that, short walk from the station and can stop somewhere for a drink too, if I wish. Any move to the edge of town would likely mean me having to drive or get a much earlier train then try and get a bus. (Assuming they wouldn't put on shuttles...). (One positive of relegation is I have four "away" matches a few miles from me....) Not that there's any money to do it, but I think Stark's Park could be redeveloped to improve the match day experience (with or without an artificial surface) rather than needing to move. Reopen the Railway Stand / close the Main Stand for starters. If we had money, (and a decent architect, who Sim says he's speaking to) I'm sure you could even get some sort of seating in the terracing in front of the Main Stand (or replacing it...). Changing rooms and offices could be put in the North Stand. As for Sim, too early to tell (for me) until we hear more. Comments made saying it's a positive move or a negative move both sound sensible for the reasons given!

    Is that the toilets you're meant to use if in the lounge for hospitality?!
