Rovers 1960s tribute night - Raith Rovers Former Players' Association and Rovers Down South are organising a tribute to the promotion winning team of 1967 - mind that 7-2 game against Queen of the South - and other players who graced the 2 blue stripes during that era. This will build on last season's Frank Connor tribute night.

When: Friday 15 March at 7.00 pm

Where: The Abbey Hotel, Milton Road, Kirkcaldy

Who: Player of the Year Gordon Wallace will be there along with a number of other former players (further details to follow as they're confirmed)

Why: why not?...............and to raise funds for the Under 15/16s and Raith Rovers

What's the price: 25 - a 2 course meal, a ticket for a "deluxe" raffle to include a signed 1960s strip, and a chance to meet the former players

There will also be a Q&A session with the players, and an auction of Rovers memorabilia

To book your place/s please contact roversdownsouth@hotmail.co.uk

I've shoved this on Fan Talk.

This will be a great night out, the great side of 1967, who can forget that 7-2 drubbing of Queen of the South, the last game of the season to clinch promotion. Rovers go wild in the sun... an amazing day, brilliant memories.

The late 1960s was a great time to be a Rovers fan.

Our tickets are booked! Cool
