Due to high demand, the 1903 Travel Club will be running an additional bus to Falkirk for our league match on Saturday 28th September.
We’re delighted to announce that Scott Agnew & Ross Dunlop have both agreed 2-year contract extensions, keeping them at Bayview until June 2022.
Scott joined East Fife in the summer of 2018 from Stranraer and so far has 48 East Fife appearances to his name & finding the net 14 times since his debut at the start of last season.
Ross also signed on last season after helping Stenhousemuir gain promotion to League 1 through the play-offs and has featured on 51 occasions do far, scoring once.
Congratulations to Darren Young who has picked up the Ladbrokes League 1 Manager of the Month award for August after an unbeaten start to the season.
The month started with a 1-1 draw in our League 1 opener away to newly promoted Clyde where a second half goal from Anton Dowds cancelled out an early opener from David Goodwillie from the penalty spot.
That was followed up with another 1-1 draw against last season’s League 2 Champions Peterhead at the Locality Hub Bayview Stadium. Derek Lyle had given the Blue Toon the lead in the 34th minute before Ryan Wallace levelled the match shortly before half-time. East Fife were the dominate side throughout the second period but were unable to find a breakthrough.
Next up was a clinical 4-1 victory over Airdrieonians on 24th August at Bayview. Ross Davidson gave the home side the early lead when he capitalised on a slip from Diamond’s ‘keeper David Hutton to stoke the ball home from 30-yards before Liam Watt doubled the lead with his now trademark goal, cutting in from the left & curling a strike into the far corner. After the break, Aaron Dunsmore added goal number 3 with a well-worked move down the right & Scott Agnew completed a clean sweep for the midfield 4 with a strike from 20-yards. Airdrieonians pulled a goal back in stoppage time through Calum Gallagher.
The month ended with a resounding victory in the Fife Derby over Raith Rovers. Jamie Gullan had put the visitors ahead after taking advantage of a short pass back to know the ball into the empty net before from then on East Fife were by far the better side. Anton Dowds equalised almost immediately after good work from Ryan Wallace. Chris Higgins added a second after half-time and Wallace a third when he got on the end of Agnew’s free kick. Raith pulled a goal back with 6 minutes to go to set up a nervy finish but Agnew made sure of the points 6 minutes into injury time with a strike from 10-yards.
This is Darren’s second Manager of the Month award while at East Fife after picking up the same accolade in last September after guiding the side to 5 wins out of 5 in all competitions during an impressive run of 8 wins in a row.
August record (league only) - Played: 4 Wins: 2 Draws: 2 Defeats: 0 Points: 8 Goals Scored: 10 Goals Conceded: 5

Supporters Direct Scotland launched its Scottish Football Supporters Survey for season 2019/20 on 26th August and encourages East Fife supporters to take part to help Scottish Football score a golden future.
Officially recognised as the lead supporters’ group in Scotland by the Scottish Professional Football League (SPFL) and the Scottish Football Association (Scottish FA), Supporters Direct Scotland has established a formal means to engage with the game’s key decision makers and represent fans’ views.
Last year's survey helped to drive change, focussing on the three big themes of "Value For Money", "Fan Engagement" and "The Supporter Experience". These priorities are shared by supporters, clubs, and the Scottish FA and SPFL, and we have already seen progress in each of these areas. Progress and improvement will be tracked and supported by the three partner organisations, with this survey forming an integral part of a three-year benchmarking study which began last season.
You can read more about the results of the 2018/19 survey by visiting www.scottishsupporters.net.
This year’s findings will be reviewed by Supporters’ Direct Scotland, SPFL, the Scottish FA and communicated to all SPFL clubs together with insights for further improvement.

This season’s survey will close on Sunday 15th September.
The club was saddened to hear of the passing of life-long East Fife supporter Hugh Landels.
Hugh attended his first East Fife match in 1938 before becoming a season ticket holder 10 years later, rarely missing a home match over the next 70 years.
Hugh attended his final match towards the end of last season where he was presented with a memento to mark his 80 years of support for the club.
The thoughts of everyone at East Fife are with Hugh’s family at this time.
