Speaking to the Raith Rovers website, BOOMscout Managing Director David Sutherland said: “Our software can be used to help Raith Rovers accurately grade players from a much wider territory, much more quickly.

“We can help identify perfectly matched players to the Raith Rovers tactical system of match-play.

“We can help the club understand a targeted players trajectory, which can ultimately remove the lottery of signing players – reducing “risk””.

He added: “We can help the Rovers operate in an even smarter way in terms of wage budget and potentially create revenue, ultimately helping the club achieve its ambitions on and off the pitch.”
