Raith Rovers fans are being urged to get their tickets for 2014’s Hall of Fame straight away, as they are already
Following the success of last week’s sell-out event, the organising committee decided to put next year’s tickets on sale straight away and say they are amazed at the response so far.
Committee member Alistair Cameron said: “We thought they would make a great Christmas present for any Rovers supporter.
“We’ve hardly done any advertising and, in just over a week, we’ve sold the best part of 100 tickets.
“To say we’re astounded would be an understatement.”
Alistair admits to being “overwhelmed” with the positive reaction to the event, which was held at the Adam Smith Theatre and said the reaction of the inductees was “very moving”.
“They were incredibly proud. Colin Cameron got very emotional, as did the family of Alex James, who sent us a lovely letter saying how much it meant to them.
“Speaking to the inductees afterwards, we got to see how much it meant to them – some said it was the highlight of their career.”
Gordon Brown MP was one of the speakers on the night and added his congratulations.
“To have Graham Souness, Liam Brady, Craig Levein, Jim McCalliog, Willie Henderson and others in Kirkcaldy on one night was a great achievement.
“Next year’s event promises to be even more spectacular.”
Alistair is urging fans to get their tickets for next year’s show straight away. “Next year will be completely different to mark the 20th anniversary of the Coca-Cola Cup victory over Celtic.
“I’d say to any diehard fan to get along to the Adam Smith and get their tickets ASAP!”
Meanwhile, Bob Wilson’s video tribute to Alex James is now available to see online.
It has been uploaded to the Fife Free Press website – along with the fabulous film which tells the story of how Raith Rovers were formed.
Both can be seen – and shared on social media – at www.fifetoday.co.uk and go to rthe video section.
A few copies of the official programme are also available at £5 from the Press office.
