An injury-ravaged Raith Rovers were dumped out of the Scottish Cup by lower league opposition to complete a miserable week for the Kirkcaldy club. Peterhead thoroughly deserved their victory - and the margin of it - against a Raith side missing five first team regulars at a wind-swept Balmoor Stadium. While not an excuse - the team that started still should have given Peterhead a closer game - it was certainly a factor as the Fifers crashed to a third defeat in seven days.
The countdown is on to the 2017 Kirkcaldy & Central Fife Sports Council awards. The annual awards, supported by The Fife Free Press Group, is the largest celebration of sport in the Kingdom. The event, which reaches a milestone 10th year, pays tribute to the achievements of amateur sports men, women and children from the Kirkcaldy, Glenrothes and Levenmouth catchment areas.
Raith Rovers striker Liam Buchanan admitted players need to question themselves after Tuesday’s 3-0 defeat to title rivals Ayr United. Rovers were out-played, and out-fought, throughout a tortuous 90 minutes at Somerset Park as Ayr seized the initiative in the title race. “The boys are hurting, and so we should be,” Buchanan said. “We came here full of confidence, and we saw what it meant to them to win a game of football.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
