Raith Rovers left red faced as Craig Easton’s maths skills fail the Fifers



RAITH ROVERS were left red faced after prematurely celebrating a youth title triumph – only to realise they could still be caught.

Craig Easton’s development side thought they had secured the Development League East when goals from Bobby Barr and Jonny Court saw off Berwick Rangers 2-0 on Monday night.

The team’s official twitter feed even posted a picture of the squad celebrating in the dressing room with champagne in hand.

However, that was swiftly deleted when it became apparent that, due to their games in hand, Forfar Athletic could still catch the Fifers.

And while Easton’s first season in charge of the Rovers’ academy remains almost certain to herald a title win for the former Dundee United midfielder, his maths skills left plenty to be desired.

The club later tweeted: “Massive Apologies. @craig8easton’s [Easton] had a nightmare with the maths. Forfar can still draw level on points. So the champagne’s back on ice.”
