The ‘sold out’ sign will be displayed on November 11 as there is not a single seat to be had for the second Raith Rovers Hall of Fame night!

The evening at the Adam Smith Theatre is a complete sell out. All tickets are gone, sponsorship packages taken and the VIP lounge is completely full.

For Alistair Cameron of the organising committee there is still some work to be done, but he said: “We’re absolutely delighted.

“The great thing is that we’ve been able to attract more sponsors this year whom we’re really grateful to, their input has made a huge difference.

Alistair attributes the huge demand to the great success of last year’s event.

He said: “It got great reviews and that’s why we were able to get more sponsors on top of last year’s who have all come back.

“There’s also been a larger take up of tickets from friends and family of the inductees. They know what to expect after last year so every inductee has been extremely excited when they were told and they’ve all bought five, six or even more tickets each.

Now the committee are determined to put on a night to remember.

“We want to produce a show that’s even bigger and better than last year’s”, said Alistair.

“Obviously one of the big differences is that we have two main speakers in Graeme Souness and Liam Brady who will be really interesting.

“We’re keeping a few surprises up our sleeves but there will be lots of big names from Raith’s past on the night.

“It’s become a big thing and is going to be a brilliant event.”

Laurie Ellis is our final inductee for 2013 ...

Current Rovers player-coach Laurie Ellis is the final name to be inducted into the Rovers Hall of Fame.

Laurie came out on top as the votes poured in to pick the player from the 2000s to join the other names from Rover’s past who will be inducted at the Adam Smith Theatre next month.

Laurie in now in his third spell at the club, having first joined in 1998.

Back at Stark’s Park since 2008 the popular player has totalled up 10 years in different spells and was named as first team coach last year.

With over 350 games played he also chipped in with 15 goals and currently sits 12th in Raith’s all-time appearance table.
