Following on from the announcement yesterday regarding the signing of striker Jack Hamilton, Raith Rovers Football Club have made another key signing, as the drive to strengthen and enhance the playing squad was further boosted today.

Wide midfielder Josh Mullin has signed for The Rovers on a 3-year deal on the completion of his contract with SPFL Championship side Ayr United.

Rovers fans already have fresh memories of Josh from his time on loan last season at Ayr United, where the energetic wide man scored 10 goals as The Honest Men finished as runners-up to champions Dundee, including a clinical double in early December when Ayr beat The Rovers 2-0 at Somerset Park.

After being signed as a youth player with several clubs (including Rangers, Celtic, Falkirk & Airdrieonians), and then spending several seasons playing Junior football with Pollok and Kilbirnie Ladeside, Josh started his SPFL football journey at the age of 22 with Albion Rovers.
While at Cliftonhill he became a league winner for the first time as The Wee Rovers won SPFL League 2.

Josh then moved on to Livingston (at that time in the SPFL Championship), where he eventually helped The Lions win promotion from SPFL League 1 as champions before moving on to Ross County FC.
Whilst at Dingwall he again played his part in a league – winning side as The Staggies won the SPFL Championship and promotion to the SPFL Premiership.

Returning to Almondvale and Livingston, Josh continued as a Premiership player with David Martindale’s side before joining Ayr United at the start of season 2022-23 initially on loan, and then permanently on deadline day in January of this year.

Rovers manager Ian Murray spoke exclusively to on signing Josh:

“Josh has great experience at this level, winning the league and knows what it takes to succeed in the SPFL Championship.

He has great delivery, which I feel was an area we needed to improve on.

All of the coaching and backroom staff look forward to working with him when pre-season training starts on June 12th

Welcome Aboard Josh!
