The New Raith Rovers Thread


Recommended Posts

The 3 trialists in training looks to be Paterson, Schiavone (ST) and Mullen (GK). Mullen in just to keep sharp and train as he has trials with Southampton and Sheffield United. Schiavone another Kirkcaldy born boy, 19 years old, who was at hearts but looks like he’s been released.

Apart from Jim Foy. He doesn’t seem to want to even speak for himself.

Twitter version had to be cut to under 2m 20 to fit their rules 😩. Had to make some changes from the original which is on Facebook and YouTube and has everyone on it. Big thanks to everyone who came down. Got some good footage that will hopefully be used in the coming weeks by the club.

Bit disappointing tbh schiavone isn’t ready to lead our front line in the championship after 1 goal for Dumbarton

Sound the @Jan Vojáček horn.

A brief search of Schiavone's name seems to suggest his 0 league goals in half a season in League One is underselling his abilities somewhat. The Dumbarton fans seemed to rate him higher than Stevie Farrell did, albeit as a supporting striker rather than an out-and-out number nine. 

Probably not a great sign that he spent the second half of the season at Gala Fairydean, although I can't find anything to suggest how he got on there.

Couldn’t find anything about his time at gala either but be very disappointed if we signed him considering we have enough young players who we are looking to move out on loan/ currently not playing like Mitchell, coulson, young . We need an experienced striker

He might have got a lift.

Two CBs and a No 9 light, got to hope Murray is aiming a wee bit higher than the mentioned trialist names.

Absolutely but Mullen would be 3rd choice, which is fine, Paterson though could be an upgrade on Dick but Schiavone sounds like he should be no more than squad filler.

Hats off to the Pars for managing to get that many people to pay money to sit with McPake and watch the fixtures be released.

In the case of Paterson, and Schiavone in particular, it could be a case of two local lads who have just been released from their clubs contacting their local club to ask for training facilities for the preseason. 

It also lets Murray assess Schiavone and decide whether he's better than what we currently have.

It probably is just that but still leaves me with a feeling of dread that’s all

Raith Rovers are delighted to confirm that Iain Davidson’s testimonial brunch will finally take place on 31st July.  

‘Davo’s’ Testimonial committee are pleased to confirm the arrangements of the final event of his testimonial year, which has been disrupted due to Covid-19  4-Iain-Davidson-225x300.jpg

The event will take place at the Strathearn Hotel, with a meal on offer along with two after-dinner speakers in the shape of John Gahagan and John Rowbotham as well as hosting a raffle and other fundraising events throughout the day.  

The event will kick off at 12pm so we ask those attending to turn up well in advance for a smooth running of the event.  

Davo etched himself into the Rovers history books with his 14-year association with the club over two spells.  

His tenure saw the iconic defender turn out for the Rovers over 400 times and feature for his side in every division bar the Scottish Premiership, finding the back of the net 19 times before leaving Stark’s Park for the final time in 2021 as he joined Highland League side, Brechin City.  

Tickets for the event sit at £35pp and you can buy them here or by visiting the club shop at Stark’s Park, open from 9am-4.30pm Monday to Friday.

More excellent content coming out of the club. Striking a nice tone. 
Been on the fence for weeks as probably won't make more than half the home games. So well played digital team - that's another one bought.

Now where's Cove...

Got my first one in 3 years ordered, and my grandsons first ever one too.
Got a good feeling about the new season, now we got rid of Mr Staled Out McGlynn.

Look forward to the Murray revolution, taking us up the the Prem.

Thought the vid was a bit cheesy and might have been better if those that were interviewed was more random although acceptance that to get the vid out they needed to interview those easily accessable/connected to the club directly or indirectly
