Rovers fans were given a massive boost ahead of Saturday’s top of the table clash with Ayr United with the announcement today that Marvin Andrews has agreed a deal to play for Rovers until the end of the season.

The Trinidad and Tobago international defender returned to action last Saturday as a trialist in the Fife Derby victory at East Fife after a long fight back to fitness following surgery on a troublesome knee injury which saw him play his last game for Rovers 14 months ago.

‘Big Marv’ was delighted to last the full ninety minutes at Methil, producing a performance that manager John McGlynn later described as “unbelievable”, and he’s now looking to get as many games as possible under his belt between now and the end of the season, and fight his way back into the reckoning for a return to international action with Trinidad and Tobago.

John McGlynn said “I am delighted that Marvin has signed again for the Club as his presence, experience and ability will add an extra dimension to the squad for the last important quarter of the season.”

Chairman Dave Somerville said “We have reached an agreement with Marvin which is of mutual benefit. Marvin wants to contribute to the success of the Club and hopes to achieve his ambition of gaining his 100th cap for Trinidad and Tobago in the summer.
The Club has an ambition to be promoted, and whilst not unique, it is unusual for a Club to be supportive to a player who is no longer formally attached to them, but Raith Rovers, and the backroom staff in particular, have assisted Marvin throughout the period of his rehabilitation, and Marvin has repayed this by showing his loyalty to the Club.

Nothing would give us more pleasure than to see the Rovers win the League, and applaud Marvin when he does indeed achieve his 100th cap for his country.
