Be a Part of Something Special

Another cup hero and great servant to Killie, Mark ‘Mavis’ Reilly is a Trust member and gives us regular support. The idea of a Killie family may sound a bit twee to some but if you are part of it then you can appreciate what it is all about and Mark knows all too well that as one of us he will always be a part of something special.

Mark Reilly receives his Trust share certificate from Board member Davie Davidson.

Upcoming Event: Stand Up (If You Love Billy) Comedy Night 8

This November get yourself along to the Sports Bar for some brilliant stand up comedy. Your eyes are not deceiving you, there is a deliberate typo in the artwork as we are returning to our spiritual home for “Stand Up (If You Love Billy) 8″…and as such have afforded a nod to KFC’s main man Billy Bowie for making that possible.

On compere duties is friend of the Trust Ray Bradshaw for his third tour of duty at the Sports Bar, Ray has been entertaining audiences up and down Britain this year so its great to have him back corralling this bunch…

Mark Nelson, who as well as being one of the most sought after acts on the Scottish circuit could also have been seen during the summer on BBC1 presenting Don’t Drop the Baton and heard on Radio Scotland in his show “Mark Nelson’s guide to Marriage”.

Chris Forbes who supported Kevin Bridges on tour in 2012 and has been a staple in the comedy tents at Rockness and T in the Park recently.

Jim Smith, who in September this year came third in the annual Scottish Comedian of the year competition, Jim is a Perthshire farmer and along with Colin McCreadie and Stuart Cosgrove constitutes St Johnstone’s entire fan base.

Lastly of course, and back yet again, is our home grown talent, John Speirs, who probably wont be entirely happy with the photo on the poster and gets a wee bit grouchy if you spell his name wrong.

Again, thanks in advance for continuing to support these nights. The ticket price remains a paltry £15 for a plethora of top acts and can be purchased by calling Peter on 0742 961 5232 or by following the links on our website, COG Blog, Facebook, Twitter etc. to the Eventbrite page for the event (or just click the picture below).

Hope to see you all soon…

Season Ticket Winners Revealed

stcomp14-15

The draw for our season ticket competition was made on the newly laid pitch at Rugby Park on Friday. The Trust Chairman seconded management duo Alan Johnston and Gary Locke to pick three names out of the proverbial ‘hat’ to receive a season ticket for the stand of their choice. The first draw was restricted to Trust members only and the lucky winner was Jamie Hume. The rest of the names were then added to the draw and Billy Docherty and Deborah Nagle will be joining Jamie in getting to watch Ayrshire’s finest in the SPFL this season courtesy of the Killie Trust.

Your Club Needs You

Today heralds what will hopefully be our final league game of the season at Rugby Park. Much depends on the result of tonight’s game as it appears after yesterday’s results that who will finish in the play off place is now between Hibs, Partick and ourselves. Needless to say that we want to avoid that eleventh position if at all possible and we would like to encourage all Killie fans to get along and lend the team their support for what can only be described as a crucial match.

No matter what the result is, the team will also need our support at Easter Road on Saturday and it would be a real boost if we could also get as many fans along to that as well. It took a determined performance by Tommy Burns’ Dad’s Army back in 1994 at the same venue to secure our top division survival back then and a huge traveling support proved to be a real boost to the players. No matter what has gone before this season, it is time to be the twelfth man again and hope that our faith and support will be rewarded with a fitting result.

Good luck to all concerned and come on the mighty Killie!
