Raith Rovers Queen of the South SPFL Trust Trophy

Raith Rovers win SPFL Trust Trophy

Queen of the South defeated in final

Raith Rovers beat Queen of the South 3-1 in front of 4,452 fans at Airdrie's Excelsior Stadium on Sunday to lift the SPFL Trust Trophy.

John McGlynn's men went ahead through Matej Poplatnik after 16 minutes but Ally Roy scrambled in a deserved equaliser in first-half stoppage time.

Man of the match Poplatnik, on loan from Livingston, made it 2-1 for Rovers with a fine header 20 minutes from time and Ethan Ross sealed the victory.

Neil Doncaster, SPFL Chief Executive, said: “I would like to warmly congratulate everyone at Raith Rovers on winning this year’s SPFL Trust Trophy final.

“It was great to have fans back in the stadium for the final for the first time since 2019 and Raith Rovers were more than worthy winners. I would also like to send my commiserations to Queen of the South, who showed real consistency to reach the final. 

“The SPFL Trust Trophy continues to be a real success, and we look forward to its return next season.”
