We’re delighted to announce the signing of 18-year-old left-back Leon Watson on loan from Heart of Midlothian until the end of the season.

Leo has been capped for Scotland at Under 19 (2 caps), Under 17 (3 caps) and Under 16 level (3 caps), most recently featuring for the Under 19s in their November double header against Armenia and Croatia.

We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of our Vice-Chairman Dave Marshall earlier today.
After retiring from a career in the Royal Navy, and working as a Heating Engineer in civilian life, Dave spent almost 10 years on the ground staff at Bayview before taking on the same job at King George V Park, maintaining a pitch widely regarded as one of the best in Junior and Amateur football.
Dave joined the Board of Directors in 2003 and, except for a short sabbatical, has been a member ever since. Dave has also served as Vice-Chairman of East Fife Girls and Women’s Football Club, Secretary of East Fife Supporters’ Club and the Club’s Ambassador for Show Racism the Red Card.
As a life-long East Fife supporter, Dave was a massive presence around Bayview and will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
Our thoughts are with Dave’s daughter Maureen, son David, and their families at this time.
A full obituary will be published in the next edition of The Bayview.
We’re delighted to announce the signing of left-sided player Ryan Blair.
Ryan has most recently been playing with East Kilbride but counts Falkirk, Dunfermline Athletic and Stenhousemuir among his previous clubs.
Ryan goes straight into the squad for today’s match against Montrose.
Welcome to Bayview Ryan!
