Meet the Directors

Raith Rovers benefits from a highly experienced board.Here’s an insight into their involvement with the club and their lives beyond the Rovers.Note: Board members are happy to discuss any concerns or ideas supporters have about the running of the club, and can be contacted via the main office.

Alan Young – Chairman

Alan joined the Board in 2007. He is a chartered accountant and a former Senior Partner of Duncan Young and Co.  Alan is now retired from business but he continues to look after selected clients. He grew up in Burntisland and attended Kirkcaldy High School. Although he and his wife, Liz, now live in Edinburgh, they try to spend as much time as possible in Puerto de la Cruz, on the island of Tenerife.  They have a grown up daughter.

Alan is a jazz enthusiast and he enjoys a glass of quality wine.

John Sim

John Sim, Kirkcaldy born, is currently Global CEO at PKF International, the global network of legally independent accountancy firms having previously held senior roles within KPMG. Operating out of Thailand, John travels extensively in his present role but still is able to take in several matches each season. He played a key role in the change of ownership which occurred at the club 9 years ago and is both a significant shareholder in our holding company and majority shareholder in the company which owns Stark’s Park.

 

David Sinton

David was formerly a partner in accounting firm Deloitte. He was born in Kirkcaldy, attended Kirkcaldy High School and is a lifelong fan of the Club. He was involved in negotiating the supporter led buy-out of 2005 and was briefly Chairman of the Club following the buy-out.

He is also a director of Stark’s Park Properties Limited where he is responsible for developing the stadium and in the short term is overseeing the installation of a synthetic surface with a view to generating real community involvement, cutting costs and increasing revenues for the Club.

Although now resident in Edinburgh with his wife Joyce, he spends a lot of time in Fife.

Born in Kirkcaldy and brought up in Dysart, Bill is a lifelong Rovers supporter. An Honours Graduate from Edinburgh University, he has had a highly successful career in education, including posts as Rector of Galashiels Academy, HM Chief Inspector of Schools (Scotland) and Director of Education in Islington, inner London. He has also been a consultant/adviser on leadership, management and improvement planning to governments in Australia, PR China, Hong Kong and the USA.

He was an SFA referee from 1976 to 1994 and has been involved in school and youth football for many years. He has also made a significant financial contribution to the Rovers to assist in our goal of returning to the Championship next season. His experience and expertise will be a considerable asset to the Board as we move forward.

Tom kindly offered his services to “help out” in December 2012 but was swiftly promoted in January 2013 when he joined the board as Commercial Director.
