Last season’s tribute to Frank Connor and the players of 1987 and beyond was a great success, and drew in supporters of all ages.

This season Rovers Down South took the decision to organise a tribute night for the 1967 promotion winning team and other players of that era because we realised we’d already lost the chance to say thanks to the likes of Bobby Reid, Bobby Evans, Ian Porterfield, George Falconer and others. The success of the Hall of Fame event in November also suggests that Rovers supporters understand the importance of learning about and celebrating the club’s history.

Who knows how many of us who witnessed the 7-2 demolition of Queen of the South to secure promotion in 1967 are still regular supporters today, or maybe you’re just too young to have seen Gordon Wallace finish off great teamwork with so many goals he became the first non old firm to win Scotland’s Player of the Year award in 1968. Either way the event on 15 March gives you the chance to relive those memories, or maybe just learn a bit more about our club’s history……………..while raising much needed funds for the U 15/16s and Raith Rovers.

When: Friday 15 March at 7.00pm

Where: The Abbey Hotel, Milton Road, Kirkcaldy

Why: To raise funds for the Under 15/16s and Raith Rovers

What’s the price: £25 – includes a 2 course meal, a special raffle, and a chance to meet the players. Q&A and an auction of Rovers memorabilia.

Tickets can be obtained from the office or from roversdownsouth@hotmail.co.uk
