Vs Celtic

After a week of torrential rain and a last minute change of venue Raith Seniors took on Celtic Seniors in the sun at the Michael Woods Sports centre.

Like the last few games Raith were once again slow starting the game and with some horrendous defending found themself 2-0 within the first before they started to get going. A fantastic run down the right hand side beating 2 players saw Craig Mitchell cut the ball back for Jock Gemmel to fire high in to the net.

Raith continued to push forward looking for an equaliser and when Jock Gemmel was put on on one with the keeper and just about to pull the trigger just inside the box he was taken out by a Celtic defender, to the dismay of the Raith manager on the touchline the Celtic defender was only issued a yellow card and the ref claimed the challenege was just outside the penalty box. Jock took the freekick and fired it over the bar. Celtic then went 3-1 up just before halft time.

Celtic started the second half better and went 4-1 up quickly and a tactical change and subs saw Raith battle back with Mark Anderson and Jim Harvey scoring getting the score back to 4-3.

Raith contniued to push forward but couldnt find the equaliser.

Final Score

Raith 3-4 Celtic
