SCOTT Davidson reckons Rothes’ biggest win in decades is the start of something big happening down Speyside way.
The striker scored his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 9-1 thrashing of his former club Fort William.
Now on 12 goals in 11 appearances for the MacKessack Park side, Davidson (23) has been a revelation as part of a Rothes revolution.
Manager Steven MacDonald pulled off a major signing coup by signing Davidson, who scored 30 goals for Fort last season and spent the summer training with Caley Thistle.
With the Inverness-based front man on board, the Speysiders are now wiping out teams who had thumped them in the recent past and Davidson is loving life at Rothes.
What a day great result and buzzing to score 3! @rotheshfl— Scott Davidson (@scottiedave_) 18 November 2017
“It was an easy decision for me to come to Rothes,” he said. “I spoke to a few of the boys who signed here in the summer, the likes of Dale (Gillespie) and Dan (Moore).
“That’s good quality players and I think there’s something special going on here.”
