From The Archives: To Somerset…..on foot

On 24th of July 2004 an intrepid band of Trust members set off from Rugby Park and walked the 16miles to a football ground south of Symington which in some circles is also known as Somerset Park, Ayr.

They weren’t doing this for no reason however, for one they were heading down to see the Westsound Trophy match between Killie and Ayr but also they were being sponsored to do so to help raise funds to sponsor Kilmarnock’s under 17 squad and also to aid local schools by helping purchase sports equipment.

They faced some fairly inclement weather with some early damping down giving way to a stiff breeze to dry them out on the approach to KA8.  Unfortunately, this was followed by a drenching towards the end of the journey, indeed a bit like the pattern of the game itself. Here they are before they set off however.
