Walking Football Update

Friday December 20th 2019

Sunday 24th November and it was back to the GA Arena in Dundee for the last game of the season. The format for this last league session was one final match and then splitting off for a top 4 and bottom 4 tournament.  The best our over 50s squad could hope for is a top 4 finish, but this hinged on Raith beating league leaders St James and either Fife Wanderers or Arbroath losing their final game.

The story of our first season in the East Region league can best be described as a rollercoaster ride. Too many draws and losing games that on any other day we have won but that’s football!! Can we finish with a win against the mighty St James??

They think it’s all over, it is now!! A 4-0 defeat to St James – not the end to our first season that we wanted – but we’ll settle for a 5th place finish this year. Every cloud and all that jazz; we did manage to return with the bottom four league shield after beating Montrose on penalties after a 1-1 draw. Then beating St Andrews in the final, again on penalties after a 3-3 draw.

Sunday 22nd December:

12pm-2pm at Stark’s Park we will be hosting the first ever Raith Rovers Walking Football Christmas Cup. 8 teams have entered, including league champions St James, Dundee Utd, Fife Wanderers, Arbroath and Linlithgow Rose. Will the mighty Raith be victorious and walk away with another piece of silverware to add to The Stenhousemuir Cup, Scottish Cup and more recently, the bottom four league shield??

For anyone that is interested in finding out more about walking football and watching some of Scotland’s best teams in action, come along to the McDermid Stand at Stark’s Park on Sunday. Andy Mill will have the Raith Suite open during matches and after the games have been played for hot and cold refreshments. COYR!!

Weekly Walking Football sessions:

The troops in Ingolstadt

You thought you’re playing days were over, they’re not now!! For the past 4/5 years, Raith Rovers Community Foundation have been running weekly walking football sessions and this year we moved to Stark’s Park on a Monday night, 8pm-9pm. Each session costs £3.50 and is open to all ages, fitness and ability. The focus of these sessions is about having fun, a bit banter and of course the social interaction with new people.

In the last two years we have taking part in league and cup competitions and we have also managed a trip to Ingolstadt to take in some football, sample some (a lot of) German beer and introduce our German friends to walking football.

Rovers take on Aberdeen at Pittodrie in the First Round of the Scottish Cup and earn a 1-1 draw in front of 10719 fans. Rovers scorer is Tom Mackle. Mackle had earlier hit the bar and Davie Sneddon met a similar fate with hi penalty. The Dons win the replay 0-1 back at Stark's Park two days later in near gale force conditions. The only goal of the game came in bizarre fashion. Bobby Reid?s clearance got caught in the strong wind and blew back into his own net.
