FIFE'S FINEST - WHO ARE WE?
Fife's Finest are a group of like minded individuals who are committed to following Raith Rovers Football Club home and away, supporting and raising money for the club. One of the noisier sections of the Rovers support, you can usually find us on matchdays wherever the singing is, or in the nearest pub prior to matches!
Mostly from the Kirkcaldy/Glenrothes area, we were founded some 15 years ago in Glenrothes before merging with a group of supporters from Kirkcaldy about 10 years ago. We are not simply a bunch of 'loud lads' who boisterously get behind the team; through the years the group has developed from simply a bunch of pals enjoying our 'away days' to a group who are a recognised part of the supporters fabric of Raith Rovers, and have shown to 'have form' when it comes to putting our shoulder to the grind and doing our bit for the club. Our partnerships with local businesses allow us to run events to raise money and the profile of the club in the community.
We remain independent as, in our view, all Raith supporters should have the opportunity to do what they can to contribute, regardless of whether are 'official' or not, and we support the efforts of all fans who have something to offer. We're all in this for the same thing - to support the Rovers!

What We Do - For Raith Rovers
Our members were key to the efforts of the 'Reclaim the Rovers' campaign (the campaign to save the Rovers from closure in 2005) and our ongoing fundraising continues to raise a considerable amount of money for Raith Rovers, helping the club to bring in new players and purchase equipment where needed. We sponsor 3 players each season and donate thier signed jerseys to chairty, and have regularly sponsored Rovers home matches.
We run regular fundrasing events including race nights, pool tournaments, 7-a-side football and help organise the annual Rock the Rovers event all to raise money to help the Rovers. We also run our own end of season awards night to honour present and past Rovers players and our own members achievements. You can find more information in the events section of the site.
