New Chairman Appointed

Friday December 19th 2014

The board of directors of Raith Rovers FC is pleased to announce the appointment of Alan Young as club chairman. Alan (61) succeeds former chairman Turnbull Hutton who retired last month.

Alan, who grew up in Burntisland and attended Kirkcaldy High School, first joined the RRFC Board in 2007. He is now retired from business but continues to look after selected clients.

In accepting the board’s appointment, the new chairman commented, “I am delighted to accept the appointment as Chairman of RRFC.  My first duty must be to thank Mario and Turnbull for effectively saving this Club on a number of occasions. Looking forward, I would ask everyone initially to give me some time to work with the CEO to improve and further develop the Club.

I would immediately ask Mario to continue his excellent work as Vice Chairman and will look at our structure with a view to ensuring that all members of the Board and all supporters are actively involved to enable the Club to make best use of their abilities and expertise.

We will have a difficult initial period but we will move forward. We will hold a General Meeting on 12th February to which all shareholders and supporters are invited. Formal notice will be issued via the website shortly.

It is essential that we achieve a positive enthusiastic attitude in all areas of the Club and it is my intention, and that of our new Board to do everything within our power to achieve that.”

New signing from Dundee United Ian Ballantyne who cost £12500 scores just 12 minutes into his Rovers debut with Rovers running out 2-1 winners over Motherwell in the League Cup. Ian stays with the club for just over three years making 143 appearances and scoring 48 goals.
