DAVE Wann has won the race to be the fans representative in the Raith Rovers boardroom.

Dave, the current supporters director, was elected with almost two-thirds of the votes from Rovers fans and will now continue in the role he has held for the last two and a half years.

Reacting to the news Dave said: “I am delighted to have been given the opportunity to continue as supporters director.

“I would like to thank Allan Traynor for standing and it was clear throughout the process that we both have the interest of Raith Rovers at heart.

“The role of supporters director was hard earned by fans and it is important that we never take it for granted.

“I will be informing the board that they have to put up with me for another two years and look forward to preparing for the new season.”

Defeated candidate Allan Traynor, who received 35 per cent of the vote, said: “This election has given the Raith Forum the opportunity to affirm their confidence in Dave as their representative on the board, and I wish him continued success in the role.

“Hopefully the election process has engaged the fans and made them feel involved, and Dave will continue to involve the fans in the running of the club.”

Allan Russell, chairman of the Raith Supporters Trust, added: “This was an incredibly well fought election and it was great to see two candidates who care passionately about the future of Raith Rovers.”
