COMMENT

Secretary of the Raith Supporters Trust, James Proctor, said:

“With four candidates this was an intriguing election, and I’d like to commend all four candidates for the professional way in which they conducted their campaigns. I would like to congratulate Andy Mill on winning the election to become the latest Supporter-Director of Raith Rovers. I look forward to him continuing the good work done by his predecessors Gordon Adamson, Dave Wann, Tom Phillips, Alex Condie and Ali More.”

“Throughout the election process the four candidates demonstrated that they each would have been an asset to our football club had they been successful. We have been encouraged by the interest generated in this election, not least from within the Starks Park boardroom, and the candidates have demonstrated very clearly the wealth of talent and experience available to the club.”

“This was the highest turnout we have ever seen for an election of this type at Raith Rovers, and I would like to thank each and every supporter who cast a vote for taking an active part in this democratic process.”

    Congratulations to Andy who will be a rock solid supporter/director.
    Well done too to David and Paul who brought new ideas into the discussion.
    As I’ve said elsewhere I’ll now be supporting Andy as our board member, both in the Raith Forum and as a volunteer, putting into effect the good ideas that all four candidates put forward during the election campaign. Lots to be done to secure a viable future for Raith Rovers.

  • Martin Christie says:

    I sincerely hope the Board find a way to get all 4 of these quality candidates involved in stimulating and leading new initiatives forward.

    The Club needs to use this new found energy and commitment as a platform to move on to better things.

    There will be other fans keen to contribute their time, skills and experience in driving the Rovers forward.

    Let’s do this by organising a meeting of like-minded volunteers and see what that leads to.

    As a member of the Jim McMillan Club and an Adult season ticket holder. Have I missed the opportunity to place a vote due to my ignorance of how and where to vote ?

    Hi Robert, details of how to vote were sent to your email address. Perhaps they didn’t make it pass your spam filter?
