The New Raith Rovers Thread

Recommended Posts

Refereeing decisions were the main talking point at Stark's Park as Rovers drew with Hearts.



Stevie Crawford and Ally Graham were on target as Raith Rovers produced a superb turnaround to win at Easter Road.

That Hearts match was probably the first, but sadly not last, time that Gary Locke was booed down the Starks Park tunnel.

These are superb highlights from that 1995/96 season. Motherwell, Aberdeen, Hibs all turned over by the mighty ‘Vers. Just shows you how amazing we did that season.

Still to come from 95/96;

Raith 3 - 0 Queens Park, 27 January 1996
Raith 1 - 0 Hibs, 10 February 1996
Partick 0 - 3 Raith, 2 March 1996
Raith 2 - 4 Rangers, 30 March 1996
Falkirk 2 - 3 Raith, 6 April 1996
Raith 1 - 3 Hearts, 13 April 1996
Hibs 1 - 1 Raith, 20 April 1996
Raith 2 - 0 Motherwell, 27 April 1996
Celtic 4 - 1 Raith, 4 May 1996

I also have two full match replays which I’m hoping to have up by the end of this week, the Coca-Cola Cup final and the 2nd leg of the tie against Bayern Munich in Germany.

Do you not have the Levein / Hogg disagreement I know there is film of it somewhere I think we have it on a video as it feature on a sports news programme probably STV. It is out there somewhere. Also in the late 70's early 80's we played Celtic at Parkhead and were beaten 2-0 I think Murray McDermott was in goal and had a fantastic dave which wqas used by the BBC for the introduction credits for Sportscene. That game was a televised one so maybe the BBC still has the tape?

Unfortunately I don’t have either of the ones you mention, my source for all of these clips are old VHS tapes which my brother and dad used to record the old highlights onto. Obviously back in those days you couldn’t just set a programme to record onto your Sky box, you had to physically be there watching and waiting to hit record and then stop, which is why a lot of games will have been missed. If a match hasn’t been recorded I’m afraid I’ve no other way of getting it.

Looking forward to this one, I was a kid at the time, basically hypothermic trying to watch it and missed the goals hiding behind the burger van for warmth :lol:

I remember that being basically comical how bad the weather was and how hard it was to see. Knew it was 3 0 and Crawford scored but no more.

Also mind a guy singing 'stormy weather' about 17 times, because the first time it got a minor laugh...

I sat in the main stand for that game for the first time ever as I thought it might be a bit warmer. It wasn't. Looking forward to seeing the rangers 4-2 game again as I remember us being robbed towards the end but never seen the highlights. Were we not 2-1 up with about 10 to play?

Listening to The Terrace’s premiership team of the season. Both contributors took Scotland cap Declan Gallagher in one of the CB positions. Mind when our fans hounded him out of training with us when he was on day release? That went well.

Don't think anyone said he wasn't good and getting better.  Prefer Good Egg FC tbh and so do you surely!

Don't recall him doing anything grave enough to get time?

So as long as the assault isnt too serious it's okay. Hitting someone with a bottle being locked up is okay just not jail time.

I dont think we had the budget to sign him anyway.
