Steven Lawther has stepped down from his role from running the Roary Club at Raith Rovers.

After five years as head of the club which he built from scratch Steven has decided to step down due to a change in his personal circumstances.

A spokesman for Raith Rover said: “With the end of the season confirmed, The Roary Club will now see a handover to its next custodians.

“The Roary Club started from the idea that our youngest generation of fans would grow an affiliation with the Rovers from an early age, by providing them a framework and opportunities to connect with players, management, fellow supporters and of course our leader, Roary Rover.

“Over 800 kids have registered with the club since it started and have experienced Christmas and Halloween parties, Open Days and meet the manager events to name but a few.

“Steven – and his wife Elaine – have been amazing in driving this initiative forward, and have been the Penman Family Stand face of the Roary Club each matchday.

“The time has come, though, for Steven to pass over the running of the Roary Club as his daughter Grace is now playing football in the National Performance League and has matches all over Scotland, meaning he can no longer guarantee being in place before kick-off on a Saturday.

“The Roary Club and Raith Rovers FC are immensely grateful to Steven for all the dedication and commitment he brought to the role and look forward to the new team taking over.”

Steven will be replaced by Louise Murdoch, supported by husband Eddie, Kenny Christie and Grant Buchan.
