There's been too many players who have turned out in the black and gold to list, so here's our next best thing. A pictorial guide to the ever changing East Fife squad. Hover your mouse over the pictures and if we have a full squad line up, you'll find it listed. If anyone knows the full line ups for any of the pics that don't have them (we have many partial line ups sadly) then please get in touch. Also any season line up we don't have would be very welcome.
