Colin Cameron is the latest Raith Rovers legend to be inducted into the Hall of Fame as our star-studded live show heads for a sell out.

The Scotland international, who is now player-manager at Cowdenbeath, was the fans’ choice from our shortlist of 1990s’ stars.

And he will be one of nine big names formally inducted at the show at the Adam Smith Theatre on Monday, November 11.

‘Mickey’, as he was nick-named, was part of the historic 1994 Coca-Cola Cup winning team that carried Rovers into Europe and said he was “overwhelmed” to have been nominated.

“It’s a great feeling,” he said. “I had lots of great times at the club. Obviously I’m a local lad and just to get the opportunity to play for the club was great.”

Cameron picked the Coca-Cola Cup final triumph as his greatest achievement at the club. he said: “It was a great time in the club’s history and was a big help in my development as a player.

“Winning the first division twice and playing in the SPL with Raith was special but winning the Coca-Cola Cup was one of the best times in my whole career.”

After leaving Rovers Cameron went on to lift the Scottish Cup with Hearts, starred for Wolves in the Premership and earned 28 caps for Scotland. Since then he has made a move into management with Cowdenbeath, impressing many with his style of play and leadership at Central Park and says he’s looking forward to the hall of fame evening.

“It will be a privilege to be involved and I’m just going to try and take it all in.”

Cameron joins Andy Young, John Urquhart, Gordon Wallace, Alex James, Willie Polland, Brian Cooper and Allan Forsyth as this year’s inductees, with one more name from the noughties to be decided by FFP readers.

He said: “I’ve always said that we need to remember that the fans are the most important element at a club.

“It’s these guys who work hard and come and spend their money to support us, and they supported me during my time at Rovers.

“For them to have voted me into the Hall of Fame is pretty overwhelming.”
