BBC Sport Online keeps you up to date with who is leaving or joining Raith Rovers' Scottish League Division One campaign.

Raith Rovers rer-signed winger Jay Stein on a new one-year deal prior to kick-off on the opening day of the season.

The 22-year-old has attracted interest from other clubs without winning a deal.

Kevin Nicol, a 19-year-old midfielder, continues to sign month-to-month deals as he seeks a move.

The news that the two could now play in the team came as a boost to Raith, who have been busy in the transfer market during the summer.

Former Northern Ireland international George O'Boyle signed a short-term deal after winning his fight for fitness.

O'Boyle was sacked by St Johnstone last season amid drugs accusations.

Spaniards Jorge Zoco, a midfielder, and Nacho Novo, a forward, were also given one-year deals by Raith.

Former Aston Villa defender Paul Browne signed a two-year extension deal that includes a job in the commercial department.

He will team up with Shaun Dennis, whose loan deal from Hibernian of last season was made permanent, as was striker Andy Smith's move from Kilmarnock.

Manager Peter Hetherston had started the rebuilding at Stark's Park with a heartbreaking personal decision to release his brother, 24-year-old Brian.

Former Aberdeen and St Johnstone defender John Inglis left, apparently heading back to Bulgaria, where he had a successful time.

The two Spaniards signed after Airdrieonians hit a crisis, Salvador Capin and Miguel Alfonso, have returned home for personal reasons.

Striker Steve Tosh rejected re-signing terms along with coach Davie Kirkwood.

But former Morton midfielder Ross Matheson arrived on a two-year deal.

Simon Miotto was manager Hetherston's first signing of the close season.

The veteran Australian formerly of Scunthorpe will double up as a goalkeeping coach.

He was previously with Hartlepool and Blackpool without becoming a first-team regular.

Veteran former Hamilton Academical midfielder Darren Henderson joined from Ross County for a year after he refused to abide to the Dingwall club's new policy of players living in the Highlands.

In: George O'Boyle (forward, St Johnstone), Jorge Zoco (midfield), Nacho Novo (forward), Shaun Dennis (defence, Hibernian), Simon Miotto (goalkeeper, Scunthorpe United), Darren Henderson (midfield, Ross County), Ross Matheson (midfield, Morton), Steven Omonua (forward), Andy Smith (forward, Kilmarnock).

Re-signed: Paul Browne (defence), Jay Stein (forward), Greig McCulloch (defence), Kenny Black (midfield), Kevin Nicol (midfield), Paul Hampshire (midfield).

Out: Steve Tosh (forward), Salvador Capin (midfield), Miguel Alfonso (midfield), John Inglis (defence), David McInally (defence, Arbroath nominal fee), Steve Hamilton (defence, Albion Rovers), Brian Hetherston (midfield).
