It is with sadness that we report that life-long supporter Davie Rowbotham (60), star of the recent BBC Scotland programme, The Council, passed away on Monday evening.
Our thoughts are with ‘Twiggy’s’ family and friends at this sad time.
In a match that is still talked about to this day Rovers defeat Hearts at Stark's Park 4-2 on a Tuesday night under the floodlights. It was a match that saw Alex MacDonald sent-off. Willie Johnstone put Hearts ahead in just 7 minutes but Colin Harris levelled for Rovers. Jim Kerr converted a penalty to put Rovers 2-1 up and Jim Marshall made it 3-1. Willie Johnston reduced the deficit from the penalty spot before Colin More made sure of the win ten minutes from time.
