The headline is shamelessly borrowed from today’s Budget Speech, but it’s spot on for Raith Rovers!

We are very pleased to announce the signing of 17 year old defender David McKay as an Apprentice Professional. David has hugely impressed the management team this season, both in Development matches in which he featured as a trialist and in training. Released last summer by Hibernian after 4 years on their books as a youth player, David came to First Team / Development Coach Laurie Ellis’ attention and he was initially invited to join training sessions. When he was pitched in to action with our U20 Development Squad he shone out as an excellent prospect and the management team have moved swiftly to secure his signature without delay.

Welcome to Stark’s Park David, and here’s to a successful football career. David is pictured below, along with his parents and Laurie, shortly after penning his first professional contract.
