Raith Rovers 2 – 0 Arbroath – Summary

22426351_1645103138842242_6909142172739034645_o

Arbroath’s outstanding away record of 19 games undefeated was finally broken today by full time Raith Rovers.

It certainly wasn’t an easy afternoon for Raith Rovers and Arbroath made a positive start with a thunderbolt from Thomas O’Brien forcing Graeme Smith into a very early save, and O’Brien was almost in on goal again but was ruled to be offside.

Raith Rovers thought they had taken the early lead but Lewis Vaughn’s shot was tapped in by Greig Spence who was clearly offside.

Danny Denholm’s pace was giving Raith Rovers Captain Iain Davidson plenty of problems as Arbroath tried to get the ball forward as quickly as possible. Danny was certainly aware of the physical presence of Davidson as every time they leapt for a high ball the home defender did his best to knock Danny out of the way.

A great spell of play by the Lichties should have resulted in a goal as first a clever strike by Ryan McCord across goal was cleared by Euan Murray then a McCord delivery from a free kick was met at the back post by Denholm who did well to stretch and connect with the ball but his shot rattled the Raith Rovers cross bar.

The Lichties would have been disappointed with the way that Raith Rovers took the lead as Vaughan was allowed too much space in midfield and took aim from 20 yards which beat Hutton and bounced over the line via the far post in the 32nd minute.

Only 6 minutes later and Raith had doubled their lead. A corner from the far side was curled into the box and Jason Thomson was unchallenged and headed past Hutton to make it 2-0 in the 38th minute.

Ryan McCord was booked for a late challenge on Iain Davidson in the 40th minute before it looked like the game was about to boil over into chaos on the stroke of half time.

A simple push and foul by Colin Hamilton on Lewis Vaughan was met by over the top reactions from the home side with several players rushing in. The fact that it was such a soft foul made the whole debacle strange but as temper’s flared both Hamilton and Davidson were shown yellow cards.

The Lichties came out for the second half trying to get back into the game and they did go on to dominate the second half but couldn’t convert their possession into clear cut chances.

Colin Hamilton had a shot blocked before a wonderful take down and dummy by McCord allowed him to shoot at goal but Smith was able to get down and make the save. Gavin Swankie was a whisker away from heading the ball into the net as he connected to a Bobby Linn Cross.

Thomas O’Brien made an incredible last gasp tackle to deny Spence who looked certain to score then a wonderful double save by Hutton kept the Lichties in the game. Jamie Wilson’s rocket was punched away by Hutton before the Arbroath keeper made his way to the other side of his goal to deny Vaughan.

Kane Hester was brought on for Ryan McCord in the first change for the Lichties with the depth of Raith Rovers squad enviable as they brought on Liam Buchanan on for Greig Spence.

Raith Rovers again were denied by the offside flag when Euan Murray’s header was ruled to be offside but Arbroath had their own squabble with the referee when they were denied a penalty as a fierce drive seemed pushed away with two hands.

As the full time whistle Arbroath’s incredible away record lasting well over a year came to an end. The opposition were full time, but the Lichties were never out of the game and a fully fit Steven Doris up against their Captain Iain Davidson will be a battle to look forward to later this season.

After the full time whistle it looked like John Herron of Raith Rovers and Thomas O’Brien were both shown yellow cards.

C’mon the Lichties

Show Racism the Red Card – Fortnight of Action

5 line red card-page-001 - cropped

Welcome to Show Racism the Red Card’s annual Fortnight of Action.

Many of you will have seen the campaign within football for many years, the SFA, SPFL, SJFA and its member clubs have been supporting the campaign since it started in Scotland.

In addition to increasing the awareness of SRtRC’s work in Scotland, the Fortnight of Action from 6th – 20th October shows commitment at the highest level of Scottish football to eradicate racism and discrimination of any form from our game.

We believe that it is vital to highlight the anti-racism message at this time of year as it runs alongside Football Against Racism in Europe’s (FARE) Football People Weeks.

All professional clubs will show their support over one weekend on Friday 14th October and Saturday 15th October. Clubs will be united in calling for an end to racism in football and society. Players in over 40 European Countries are involved in similar events as part of FARE network against racism and discrimination.

Show Racism the Red Card has received excellent support from football clubs, football authorities and football fans the length and breadth of Scotland – we would like to take this opportunity to thank you all. We have heard of many instances where supporters have been proactive in promoting the anti-racism message, making it clear that racism and discrimination are not welcome at their club. We urge fans to continue to support the anti-racism message; it is the responsibility of us all to ensure that it is carried out beyond the Fortnight of Action and beyond the terraces.

Neil Doncaster, Chief Executive of the SPFL said “Football is a powerful medium to break down barriers and promote tolerance. Our clubs have supported Show Racism the Red Card since season 2003/04 and once again, this united action in support of the campaign sends out the positive message that football is a game to be enjoyed by all.”

As the Fortnight of Action Ambassador, on behalf of Arbroath FC we are delighted to once again be participating and showing our support for the Show Racism the Red Card campaign. Racism is extremely negative and can take many forms within society today including verbal and non verbal abuse as well as physical assault to individuals or property. People should not be discriminated against because of their nationality, culture, religion or skin colour and Show Racism the Red Card plays an important part in helping raise awareness of the issues out there. Football in Scotland has had an association with this campaign for many years now and as players and the focal point of attention during a match, we can deliver a clear message to a wide audience that racism should not be tolerated in society.

All the best – Mark Whatley, Captain and Fortnight of Action Ambassador, Arbroath FC

The campaign will continue to speak to all football clubs, the football authorities and the police to eradicate all forms of racist behaviour.

The SPFL, SJFA and its clubs deplore all forms of racism and any racist behaviour will not be tolerated at SPFL or SJFA matches.

Over the past year Show Racism the Red Card has faced major funding difficulties but we strive to continue our work. We are working with grassroots football, community groups, schools, the police and prison service to ensure that going forward Scottish society and Scottish football is fair and inclusive for all.

Football is a sport that is followed by people across the world and football matches should be an enjoyable experience for all, whatever their background. We all have a part to play in challenging racism in football and society.

19 Games......

On Saturday our amazing 19 match undefeated away run came to an end at the hands of full time Raith Rovers, but the Lichties who made the trip would certainly tell you that we were on top for large periods of the game.

So it is perhaps it is only right we celebrate that run of 19 matches. It is something that I have never witnessed before and it was pivotal in clinching the League 2 Championship.

The run stretched from a 3-2 defeat by Clyde at Broadwood on 10th September 2016 to a 2-0 defeat by Raith Rovers on the 14th October 2017.

We went a whole calendar year and in the end it was an incredible 399 days, in which we recorded 12 wins, 7 draws and scored 43 goals and only conceded 18 goals and kept 6 clean sheets.

It was a special run and smashed the old club record so it is worth recognising the Management staff and players who were part of that run and to the Lichties who made all those away trips!

Records are set to be broken, so let's go for 20 games!

Here is a list of those games.

Raith Rovers 2 – 0 Arbroath – Summary

22426351_1645103138842242_6909142172739034645_o

Arbroath’s outstanding away record of 19 games undefeated was finally broken today by full time Raith Rovers.

It certainly wasn’t an easy afternoon for Raith Rovers and Arbroath made a positive start with a thunderbolt from Thomas O’Brien forcing Graeme Smith into a very early save, and O’Brien was almost in on goal again but was ruled to be offside.

Only 6 minutes later and Raith had doubled their lead. A corner from the far side was curled into the box and Jason Thomson was unchallenged and headed past Hutton to make it 2-0 in the 38th minute.

Ryan McCord was booked for a late challenge on Iain Davidson in the 40th minute before it looked like the game was about to boil over into chaos on the stroke of half time.

A simple push and foul by Colin Hamilton on Lewis Vaughan was met by over the top reactions from the home side with several players rushing in. The fact that it was such a soft foul made the whole debacle strange but as temper’s flared both Hamilton and Davidson were shown yellow cards.

The Lichties came out for the second half trying to get back into the game and they did go on to dominate the second half but couldn’t convert their possession into clear cut chances.
