Raith’s Scott Robertson made his long-awaited comeback from injury playing for the club’s Under-20s on Tuesday night at Stark’s Park.
The former Scotland international has worked his way back after a groin op and played the first 45 minutes in the 6-1 victory over Alloa.
The 31-year-old midfielder hadn’t played since the start of August but came through the game without suffering any ill-effects.
New signing Robbie Crawford also featured in the match and Rovers boss Gary Locke has revealed that he made a big impression when he came in to train with the club recently.
The former Rangers midfielder signed a short-term deal with Rovers until January on Friday.
The 23-year-old, who had spells on loan at Morton and Alloa, was released by the Ibrox club in August.
The manager said: “He can play anywhere across the midfield or off the striker as well.
“He came in and trained with us. He had a couple of opportunities down south but he has really impressed us with his attitude and he is also a good player technically.
“It was great that he has decided to come in. He has signed a short-term deal but he will certainly give us a bit of cover across the midfield area.
“We are delighted to add him to the squad.”
