Raith Rovers Ladies are making a comeback with the help of the new Raith Rovers Community Foundation.
The club will once again be represented in the Scottish Women’s Football League next season, with the first step being to recruit an experienced coach.
Raith Ladies are hoping to capitalise on the renewed interest from local girls and women following the recent Women’s World Cup, and also to build on the record numbers of girls playing football for the younger Raith Rovers Girls teams.
Paul Doig, head of community football at the foundation, explained: “I am delighted to assist Raith Rovers Ladies to be back up and running, and get more women in the Kirkcaldy area playing football.”
Sam Milne, the SFA East Region development officer for girls and womens’ football, added, “Raith Rovers LGFC is a fast growing club which has worked hard to develop a full pathway for girls playing football, and I am pleased to be able to help them re-establish their womens’ team.”
Anyone interested in joining the reformed Raith Ladies can contact Paul Doig at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
