It was so good to be back

An AWESOME show, filled with Rovers heroes & legends and current players and management.

The show was well led again by Bill Leckie, Craig the Announcer, John Greer and all the guests.
John Barnes was a terrific speaker and Gary McCallister had some great stories.

It was 3 and half hours of Rovers magic.

Well done the organisers, you all did a great job bringing the HoF back after 4 years.

Wasn't able to get down for it this year but the list of main participants, both inductees and speakers, was hugely impressive and would no doubt be awesome (as Tam states) on the night.
Congratulations to all 👏👏👏
Nothing better than wallowing in fitba' nostalgia for an hour or three 🥹

Just watched the wee clip on Facebook of Paquito back at the ground. Strong hint, perhaps, of a pre-season friendly next summer in Las Palmas. 🤞
Get saving folks, methinks, is the order of the day 🥹

A fantastic night, as always.
Huge credit to the organisers and congratulations to this year's inductees.
When Bill Leckie said we were going to finish the night with a song, I thought John Barnes was going to get up and give us the Anfield Rap.

The fella that helps to organise the event? Always good when supporters get recognised by these type of things.

Gutted!

Well done all the organisers, from Ally Gourlay and then John Greer and all the committee members, it is a SUPERB Rovers Show.

Possibly the greatest Rovers related event ever.

(Not including football)

I know it is very hard work, very time consuming, etc. behind the organising of the show but giving up the Hall of Fame is SAD, when the Raith Rovers HoF appears to be the envy of many top football clubs.

Sad news as it was a great excuse to get out the house on a Monday evening in November and just submerge yourself in everything Rovers.

Wee rumour that the club are going to run it, but we will wait and see. I hope it keeps going especially this year as it marks the 10th & 30th anniversaries of our famous cup wins over Rangers & Celtic.

If it's more for the club and less for the people like Crow and Cameron who have zero love or even connection with RRFC then it won't be a totally bad thing. Hopefully people with Rovers in their veins like John will still have a role to play.
