Following on from the announcement that Kilmarnock FC had agreed a deal with the Bank of Scotland to help clear the club’s debts, The Killie Trust have issued the following statement;
Kilmarnock Supporters’ Society Ltd (The Killie Trust) would like to welcome Billy Bowie, Jim Mann, David Moran and Russell Smith to the board of Kilmarnock Football Club. These appointments along with much needed investment will see the club become “debt free” and have a more stable boardroom structure. We hope this change signals the start of a new era for Scotland’s oldest professional club and is a sign of things to come. The link between a football club and its supporters is vital to its survival and a club’s relationship with its community must be nurtured. To that end the Killie Trust would urge fans to return to Rugby Park in numbers to support the team at this crucial time.
