Good News Stories!

Monday February 18th 2013

At a time of falling attendances in Scottish football, Raith Rovers has bucked the trend with a record crowd attending the recent cup tie against Celtic. The official total attendance, including our many guests at satellite hospitality venues, is now confirmed at 7,775, revised upwards from the initial figure announced on the day. Despite the live BBC TV coverage of the match, and the Sunday lunch time kick off,  this is the largest crowd Stark’s Park has seen this century (the previous record having been the 7,496 who witnessed the 3 – 0 Millenium Derby victory against local rivals Dunfermline Athletic on 3rd January 2000).

And…talking of Fife Derbies… the Pars are due to visit again next month, and we are delighted to advise that Fife Police have approved our request for pay at the gate arrangements for this fixture. In so doing, the good behaviour of both sets of fans at this season’s previous derby fixture has been taken into account. Here’s hoping for another bumper crowd that day….. and another 3-0 victory wouldn’t go amiss either!!


Following promotion the previous season Rovers took on Celtic at Parkhead drawing the match 2-2 in front of a crowd of 32000. Rovers fielded two ex-Celts in Joe McLaughlin and Andy Young. Rovers twice came from behind in the game with Willie Penman netting on each occasion. The game is most notable for an injury to Willie Penman. Rovers trainer Willie Hunter raced onto the park to administer smelling salts but the semi-conscious Penman took a deep drink of the salts. Penman was taken away to the dressing room where he was violently sick but insisted on returning to the action!
