Not just a footballing decision

FRASAC written in sand

There has been much written and spoken in the last week regarding Raith Rovers and their signing of David Goodwillie. As noted in FRASAC’s previous statements and those of Rape Crisis Scotland we are pleased the club have acknowledged they ‘got it wrong’ and hope they now have some understanding of the depth of feeling of both the local and wider community around the issue of violence against women.

It has been fantastic to see how many people within the club, its supporters and the public both within and outwith Fife felt the need to stand up and be counted. This gives real hope that whilst there is still a long way to go when we come together we can, and do make a real difference.
