In 2008 a group of fans decided to drag all the boxes of memorabilia from their attics and set up an exhibition in Kirkcaldy Museum and Art Gallery to mark the 125th birthday of our football club. At the end of the exhibition they took photos of everything before putting it back in it’s boxes for a few more years. This website has all of those photos, as well as additional material that has been submitted since.

Our club has a proud history, and we would love to share as much of this with as many people as possible. If you also have a dusty box in your attic, wardrobe or garden shed (which has a door and a window, naturally) please let us know as we’d love to add its contents to this site.

  1. I was friendly with Allan Collins’ daughter – and she gave me a number of her father’s Raith related items:-

    League Cup finalist medal A Collins 1948-49
    Registration of a Professional – A Collins, dated May 6th 1949, signed by Geo Graham secretary of SFA
    Player’s Admission Ticket – Allan Collins, 1950-51, signed by R R Herdman
    Rules of the Scottish Football Players’ Union
    2 team photos – I guess around 1950
    Action Photo from Fife Free Press
    Sheet from Allan Collins’ funeral – (1918-2002) – he was born in Kilmarnock and played also for Killie.

    I could pass these to the club if you want – or maybe Kirkcaldy Museum?

  3. My Grandfather Adam Wilkie played for Raith Rovers and I managed to purchase a trophy called the Lircaldy cup that he helped win.
    It is the first trophy won by Raith Rovers in 1886.

  4. My grandad played for Raith Rovers in 1940/50’s we think but can’t find anything about him, he also played for Aberdeen his name is Alex Anderson. Does anyone know anything or have pictures please.

    1. Sorry for the delay in checking this out. There has only been one player of that name to play for Raith Rovers, he played one game for Raith Rovers on 20th March 1943 as goalkeeper in a 6-2 win against Hearts. He played as a “war guest”, which explains why he was only at the club for such a short time.

  5. Hi
    I am trying to obtain photos of players who played a first team game for Sheffield Wednesday.
    I am only missing a few, less than 20.
    Do you have a copy of Fletcher Welsh who played for Raith before the first World War.


    1. Just looked him up – 51 goals in 52 games! We could do with someone like him now!!!

      Unfortunately I haven’t been able to track down any photos of him. Good luck with your search.

  6. Your museum site is really excellent and very informative . Can you please confirm that Matthew Hoggan is the player in the 1933-34 team photo, back row, second from left? Do you also know how many times he played for the Scottish national team?
    Your help will be greatly appreciated.

  7. Hello, I work for BBC Sport Scotland and we are looking for some Raith Rovers archive images for a Scottish Cup VT. Let me know if you are able to help.
