Two Rovers fans have put their hat in the ring to become the latest ‘Supporter-Director’ of the club.
David Wann, who has held the post for the last two years, and Allan Traynor, a project manager, both put forward their nomination to take up the role which was secured after the Reclaim the Rovers campaign in 2005.
Both candidates have provided a statement to support their nomination and now it’s over to supporters to make their choice. Voting papers will be sent to all members of Raith Forum organisations (Trust, Supporters Club, 200 Club and Jim McMillan Club) over the next week. The election will end on Friday 24 May with results announced over that weekend.

The nomination process for the Supporters-Director role at Raith Rovers FC is now open.

In the event of more than one nomination being received an election will take place between Monday 29 April and Friday 17 May.
More details on the duties and responsibilities of the role can be found here.

Whilst most Raith fans were enjoying their half time pie or praying we could hold onto our 2-0 lead against Morton on Saturday outgoing Raith Trust board member John Mainland handed over a cheque for £1000 to Raith Rovers director Dave Wann.
The money represents the profits made from last summers beer festival and the sponsored triathlon Carol Smith (from Barcelona) did to raise money for the club. That makes a total of £6000 the trust has handed over to the club this season.
The trust board wishes to thank John for all his hard work with the trust where he has been a board member since the beginning. We are sure he will continue to be involved in the club and be seen at the trust table in the south stand.
