Raith Rovers’ squad-building for the future continued today with the news that creative midfielder Dylan Easton has extended his contract with The Rovers by another two seasons.

After two seasons at the club, Dylan has made 98 appearances and scored 21 goals, along with 17 assists for his teammates as he sealed his place as one of the most exciting players in Rovers colours in the season just ended.

Amongst many magical moments this season, Dylan lit up the match at Tannadice with a glorious goal as Rovers secured a vital win on Tayside in our promotion push, as well as crucial strikes in Derby matches against Dunfermline, and also vs Partick and Ayr United (amongst others).

Since making his debut in the old SFL Division One 12 years ago as a teenager for Livingston (and then playing his second ever professional match vs Raith Rovers a week later, alongside new Rovers signing Callum Fordyce). Dylan has played extensively across the leagues in Scotland for Berwick, Elgin, Forfar and Kelty (amongst other clubs), before joining up with Rovers manager Ian Murray at Airdrieonians in July 2021 for a successful season.

Speaking exclusively to www.raithrovers.net, Dylan said “I’ve really enjoyed my past two years here, so I was delighted to be offered an extension to my contract.

The group of boys we have here are great – I love working under the gaffer and the fans have all made me feel at home.

Obviously we fell just short last season, but I’m looking forward to pushing on again next season and hopefully going one better than last.”

Rovers manager Ian Murray added “I’m very glad Dylan has re-signed for the club. I think the Rovers and Dylan have been good for each other and I personally enjoy working with Dylan.

We all know about his quality and ability, and I’m sure there would have been a lot of interest in Dylan from other clubs.

We are delighted he has decided Stark’s Park is the best place for him.”
