Raith Rovers are today delighted to announce the signing of versatile midfielder, Scott Brown on a two-year-contract upon the expiry of his deal at Peterhead. 

The 27-year-old midfielder arrives at Stark’s Park as our second signing of the Summer, following in the footsteps of Dylan Easton who penned a deal of the same length last Thursday. 

‘Broonie’ impressed Ian Murray with his performances in the middle of the park whilst turning out for Peterhead last season where he captained Jim McInally’s side for the last three seasons. 

The Glasgow born playmaker started his career at Clyde before impressing the coaching staff at Bradford City, earning himself a move to the EFL giants in 2011. 

Brown moved back to North of the border two seasons later when Tommy Wright and his St Johnstone side came a calling, where he made 25 appearances over two seasons in Perth. 

Brown then found a second home in the form of McInally’s Peterhead, where he has spent the last six seasons, becoming an ever-present as he made over 200 appearances for the Blue Toon. 

The midfielder has turned down multiple offers of a return to Full-Time Football in that time, before deciding to join Ian Murray’s Rovers Revolution this Summer as his new side begins to take shape. 

A delighted Ian Murray told RaithRovers.net 

Scott is a really good player, he’s someone that I’ve admired from a far for probably the last two or three years. 

“His performance levels have been really good in that time. 

“He’s been Full-Time before and obviously dropped down a little bit but his energy levels and most importantly his technical ability is fantastic. 

“He can play a number of positions which is great, he can pass the ball but he also will give us a bit of a presence too which is very appealing. 

“He’s a very dangerous player, who we always were wary of when setting up against Peterhead when we were at Airdrie. 

“He wanted that one last opportunity to try going Full-Time again, it’s public knowledge that he’s knocked back multiple offers to do so in recent years but he feels that the time is right and I feel that he is good enough to play in the Championship and will add a lot to our team.”
