Saturday 29th February 2020

THERE was drama before a ball was even kicked at the C&G Systems Stadium today as a visiting Raith Rovers fan became engaged to his girlfriend on the pitch!

Bob Cowie was expecting to simply watch his team in action against Dumbarton.

That was until Jen McKee surprised him by turning up dressed as Sons mascot Pellie the Elephant!

With stand-in stadium announcer Robert Ryan talking everybody through proceedings, Jen proposed to Bob and he said yes!

It is, of course, customary for women to propose on February 29, which comes round every four years.

Sons general manager Antonia Love, who helped organise Jen’s big moment, said: “It was a very pleasant surprise for us all when Jen asked if this would be possible.

“We’re delighted to have helped out and we wish the happy couple all the very best for the future!”
