Iain Davidson is to be honoured with a Raith Rovers testimonial with Hibs providing the opposition.

The long-serving defender is to be recognised with a match in his honour at Stark's Park on Friday, July 16 after making 507 appearances across two spells at his home-town club.

The game will kick-off at 7pm with further details to be confirmed by organisers in the coming weeks.

Davidson first joined Raith in 2004 under Claude Anelka and spent eight years with the Kirkcaldy club, captaining them to the Second Division title in 2008-09, before departing for a three-year spell at Dundee in 2012.
