Officials from Falkirk have been in touch about an incident that took place at our fixture on Saturday (14th December) at the Falkirk Stadium. They are looking for help identifying the person(s) responsible for tearing an advertising banner at the rear of the away stand and damaging 5 seats in the vicinity of seats 260–270.
This type of behaviour is unacceptable and reflects very poorly on the club and our support, the vast majority of whom attend away fixtures in a positive spirit and without incident.
When we travel to other clubs’ grounds, fans do so as ambassadors of the club. For the vast majority of our travelling support, this means having a great day out following the team around the country, and leaving a positive reputation of ourselves behind. Sadly, the acts of one or two individuals can ruin this reputation for everyone very quickly.
Both Falkirk and ourselves are making efforts to identify those involved and we are asking supporters who may have information about the perpetrators to contact the club as soon as possible.
Having been on the receiving end of damage in the past at Stark’s Park, we know the cost and frustration this causes. Any Raith Rovers supporters who are found damaging the property of others will receive an automatic ban and may be reported to Police Scotland.
