It is with great sadness that Raith Rovers FC have learned of the passing of former player David Sneddon.

‘Davie’ as he was affectionately known, was signed by Tommy Walker in September 1967. Davie had featured prominently in the Kilmarnock side that had the Scottish First Division Championship in 1965.

Tommy Walker brought Sneddon to Stark’s Park to bolster the club’s  return to the top flight of Scottish Football. Davie went on to play 115 times for Raith Rovers over a 4-season period, scoring 11 goals.

When George Farm returned to Stark’s Park, Davie was used to great effect to scout on Rovers’ opponents.

He started his career with Dundee before moving to Preston North End. He later managed both Kilmarnock and Stranraer, and in 2014, he was awarded an MBE.
