Bowie left his boyhood club in the summer for Fulham and Abraham’s heard good things about the club from that: “It’s a pleasure to be here and I am happy we could get it done. I am looking forward to it. I’m on loan to the end of the season. I like to score lots of goals and running in behind, doing what I can for the team.

“I found out not too long ago about interest. Kieron Bowie had been here before and I heard good things. I thought I should come and see things for myself. It’s a different environment, different weather.

“I know Kieron and I had heard things about that from the lads – we have had a little switch! I haven’t played too much football over the last couple of months but I have a bit of experience in League One in England.

“I like challenges. I have did a bit of homework, I know Raith like to play attractive football and they go forward a lot. I want the team to be in the best possible position and I want to hit the ground running.”
