London Rovers - The Tour

SPONSORED “TREK” – LONDON’S PREMIERSHIP GROUNDS 14th August 2005

Last Sunday, 14th August, a group of London–based Raith Rovers supporters made their way round London by foot, bus and ferry with the objective of stopping at the stadia of all 6 Premiership clubs in the capital (White Hart Lane, Highbury, Arsenal’s new stadium at Ashburton Grove, Stamford Bridge, Craven Cottage, The Valley & Upton Park).

In total, the trek lasted 9 hours, and the 5 of us walked about 18 miles. The day also consisted of a Ferry trip from Embankment to Greenwich.

We estimate that over £3000 was raised towards the Reclaim the Rovers campaign.

THE GROUP :

The London Rovers were formed in 1993, uniting under the common theme of Raith Rovers supporters living in London and the south–east.

The participants on 14th August 2005 were :
Niall Russell
Bill Gilby
Ross Gilby
Steve Wallace
Greig Codd

All of the group are lifelong supporters of Raith Rovers FC.

Stamford Bridge - Chelski

Upton Top Ranking


Haven't we lost something?

Ross goes MIA at West Ham's, Upton Park - or The Boleyn Ground for all you aficionado's out there.

Southern Hospitality?




Sadly getting shut out of the bar at Fulham's Craven Cottage. Typical English licensing laws!

Into The Valley


5 Scotsman and a Pole hang around in Charlton

Insert Arsenal joke here


The guys decide that using some stick on letters and a spare wall will make the tour a lot easier.

Spurs' New Cheerleaders?


The boys get ready for the chorus line audition at White Hart Lane
