Staff Biography

Bob Law (Wing half, 1881-95) - In 1881, Bob Law was one of the founders of Raith Rovers in Cowdenbeath. After the merger with Cowdenbeath Rangers, Bob was appointed captain of Cowdenbeath FC and led the team on the field for many years. Law was the driving force behind many of Cowden's early successes and took the Miners to four Fife Cup wins and two Dunfermline Charity Cup victories. He was capped several times by Fifeshire. He also played for the Albert Cricket Club in Cowdenbeath. In 1901, Bob Law demonstrated his true mettle in the Donibristle disaster when he was lowered on a rope into the yawning chasm on Moss Morran where he rescued 3 men who had been entombed. Bob Law was honoured for his heroism with 100 from Andrew Carnegie and a gold watch from the Daily Telegraph. His eventful life came to its close in Cowdenbeath in December 1931.
