Raith Rovers have made another acquisition and secured the signature of 18 year old striker Ethon Varian on loan from Stoke City FC.
A native of County Cork – Ethan made his Republic of Ireland U21 debut in March, and has come through the ranks at The Potters most recently playing for their Under 23 side in EPL2, after signing as a professional in July 2020.
Ethon also spent time on loan at Nantwich Town in the Northern Premier League last season, scoring twice on his debut v Hyde United.
The striker has already, however, made his Rovers debut – replacing Matej Poplatnik at half-time of Iain Davidson’s Testimonial match v Hibs last Friday and acquitting himself well against Hibs’ experienced top flight defenders.
The loan arrangement is set to run until January 2022.
Welcome to the Rovers Ethon!
