New Year, New Board Member

67642_433575716712950_578679963_nWe recently reported that we would be adding new faces to the Trust Board and today we are delighted to announce that Killie’s own Tommy Adams has been co-opted on as a director. Tommy is a local legend and well known in the community not only for the sterling work he has done for the football club but as the most popular Killie fan south of Symington as a result of plying his trade as “the people’s DJ” in pubs and clubs throughout Ayrshire and beyond.

Since departing the club’s commercial department in 2014, Tommy has started up his own promotional company which sets up advertising opportunities for businesses with football clubs and he has already secured clients from Junior level all the way up to SPFL. In less than a month he managed to sell all the advertising space on club calendars for six clients which helps illustrate how important Tommy is going to be to us.

It goes without saying that we see this as a bit of a coup and we hope that Tommy can help persuade disenfranchised local business people back to supporting the football club through the Killie Trust. Tommy, like us, shares the belief that Kilmarnock FC should be a hub for the community and in turn that the community will reciprocate by engaging once again with the club…at least that is how it should work! We hope that everyone will join us in welcoming Tommy back into the fold and spare him a minute when he comes calling…
