Raith Rovers boss Ian Murray: 'I feel good' about signing Malta international James Brown
Rovers manager Murray said he ‘feels good’ about signing the player, who shares a name with the ‘Godfather of Soul’, a late American music legend who sold over 50 million records and whose highest charting song was ‘I Got You (I Feel Good).
Murray said: "I'm happy we have secured James on loan - he will provide more competition in the squad. He brings experience and natural defensive qualities which are proven in the SPFL Premiership.
"We will work hard with James to get him up to speed for the SPFL Championship, although he has been training all season with St Johnstone.
“As ever, I'd like to thank the board of Raith Rovers FC in backing us once again in the market, and I look forward to working with James.”
Hailing from Dover, Kent, Brown started his football career in the Millwall youth system, turning professional as an 18-year-old and remaining at The New Den until the end of season 2020-21 before making the move to Scotland.
He has been capped by Malta (qualifying to represent the country through his grandfather) three times since 2022.
