KillieTrustLiga 6: Fantasy Football Returns

KillieTrustLiga is back for a sixth season, if you don’t know what it is then here is a brief run down. The Killie Trust has played administrator in a mini league on fantasy.premierleague.com site for the past five years. You pick your fifteen players from the English Premier League and week on week gain points due to their performances or lack there of on the park thats just the basics, a full list of the rules is available on the site.

managersYou might think that Gary Hooper’s horrible miss when clean through on Cammy Bell in the league cup final two seasons ago was just a blip and he could fire you to victory by banging them in for Norwich this year. Or you could think that Kenny Shiels was right in his thoughts about Victor Wanyama and steer clear of him for Southampton. Will ex Killie players Steven Naismith or Matthew Kennedy play a prominant role for Martinez’ Everton side, is it worth having a punt on them? Or are you anxiously hoping that Conor Sammon gets a move back to the big league for Hull perhaps and you can slot him into your forward line beside RvP and Aguero?

Over the years we have had some close run contests, but the history books show that Colin Syme won it in its inagural year followed by Greg Wilson in year two. Steven Murray won it the next year and in year four, well in year four we seem to have lost the notes on who won (if it was you or you know who it was please let us know on facebook or twitter). Which brings us to last season and Greg Wilson won his second title, beating David Freeland and Brian Chambers as well as all the rest of us who entered to the title.

Killie Trust statement – 13th June 2013

Trust10a

The Kilmarnock Supporters’ Society Ltd (the ‘Killie Trust’) has previously expressed our dissatisfaction with the current structure and operation of Kilmarnock Football Club. We are therefore dismayed that the situation has deteriorated further. We feel that the confidence in, and reputation of Kilmarnock FC is not being served by the actions of its Chairman and believe that there is little commitment to act in the interest of all shareholders and stakeholders of the Club, contrary to his well documented stance on “fiduciary duty”.

The treatment of a dedicated, hard-working and popular team manager, Kenny Shiels, a man who engineered our first ever Scottish League Cup success only last year, has further tarnished the reputation of Kilmarnock FC. We can only offer our apologies to Kenny for a decision which has gone against the wishes of the majority of Killie fans, and wish him well for the future. His contribution and his engagement with the community will not be forgotten and he will be a welcome visitor to Kilmarnock whenever he chooses to return.

The supporters of Kilmarnock Football Club are tired of being ignored and misrepresented and many have reached the point where they feel the only way they can be heard is to remove their financial contribution. Whilst the Trust Board believe everyone must make their own decision in regards the much talked about season ticket boycott, we can understand why many have decided to take this drastic action, and the responsibility for this threat to the very existence of Kilmarnock FC lies squarely with the one-man Board of Directors.

We find some of the Chairman’s recent comments astonishing, from his justification for Kenny Shiels dismissal to his sudden willingness to change the structure of the club and engage the community. The initial idea of a partnership between local authority, local business and fan/community groups working together was one brought forward by the Trust in a recent meeting with the Chairman, but he rejected the concept as unworkable for our club. We would seriously like to know who he has been making these plans with given that during a recent series of Community Ownership Group (COG) initiative meetings that invitees from all the aforementioned parties highlighted individual instances which alienated them from the Club and their general dissatisfaction at the way in which Kilmarnock Football Club is being run.

The Trust has been actively working with the Supporters Association (KFCSA) and other fans’ groups to ensure that supporters’ interests are represented and that we are no longer ignored in the same manner we had to endure when the chairman manipulated figures to suit his own ends for an SPL vote last year. His comments then, as now, proved to be highly embarrassing and not a true reflection of how Kilmarnock fans felt about the issue or wanted it dealt with. We urge all Kilmarnock fans to attend the KFCSA AGM on Saturday 15th June to decide on further action, your voice is important, without the fans the club would not exist and the future is in our own hands.
