The above shows our friends from the North East of England who were at one of our recent games having enjoyed hospitality at the match. Some fans will remember them as they had been here 2 seasons ago. They enjoyed it so much that they reurned to see us. This group is from the Consett Rugby Club and the photo shows them, known as the Consett Grumpies, back in their Clubhouse with the framed and signed top of East Fife, proudly hanging on their wall. The banter with the locals and staff was great and they are very welcome to return to grace our locality any time.
THANKS CONSETT GRUMPIES AND RETURN SOON !!

A variety of awards are presented on the night including Supporters Club Player and Young Player of the Year, Players’ Player of the Year, Top Goalscorer and Goal of the Season, which will be voted on the night. Other awards will also be presented by the East Fife Board of Directors, East Fife Supporters Trust and the East Fife Community Football Club.
We’re delighted to announce that Manager Darren Young has agreed a 2-year contract extension.
Darren was appointed East Fife manager in June 2017 and guided the club to a 6th place finish in Ladbrokes League 1 during his first season, which included a 6-1 victory over Airdrieonians and a 5-4 comeback win against his former side Albion Rovers.
A major overhaul of the squad last summer meant the team took slightly longer gel but Darren soon went on their best run since 1961 with 8 straight wins in all competitions, which saw him pick up the Ladbrokes League 1 Manager of the Month award in September. This season has also seen us feature in the Semi Final of the Irn Bru Cup (our best ever run in the competition) and reach the 5th round of the Scottish Cup.
The club is currently in its highest league position for over 20 years and looking to cement our place in the Championship play-offs for the first time. The Board of Directors are delighted that Darren accepted their offer to remain as East Fife manager for a further two years.
We have been drawn to face Cowdenbeath in the Semi Final of the Fife Cup. The tie will take place on Tuesday 2nd April at Central Park, Cowdenbeath with a 7.45 pm kick off. Admission prices for this game have been agreed as follows: Adults £5, Child £3.
