Raith Rovers Football Club are delighted to confirm the signing of 17-year-old Kai Montagu on a two-year deal from East Kilbride.

Speaking exclusively to raithrovers.net, Kai told us, “I’m really happy to be here and excited to sign my first professional contract. I can’t wait to get started.

Manager Ian Murray also said, “Kai is a young player that we have identified early. He will improve by training with our squad every day and has an opportunity to be a real high level player. It is important as a club we look for younger players for our future. We need to give him time to adapt to full-time football but he will be looked after. I and the rest of the staff look forward to working with Kai.

An energetic and skillful midfielder, Kai has a good eye for goal and shows a huge amount of quality on the ball.

He came through the St Mirren Academy before being signed for East Kilbride, joining their Under-18 squad initially and then moving up to their Under-20s.

Last season he won East Kilbride’s Under-20s Player of the Year and made the step up to also play for the First Team.

We’re all delighted to have Kai on board and excited to see what the future holds for him with us.
