The draw was for all current trust members, either long term or newly signed up, their membership numbers put in a bucket and at halftime of said match our Chairman Barry Richmond braved the cold and stood in the centre circle with bucket in hand to draw the winning entry.

From The Archives: Introducing…The Killie Trust

This week we go back, way back, to before the Trust launch night in order to have a look again at some nice snaps of the Trust pioneers who were out in force, leaflets in hand spreading the word of the new Killie Trust.

The leaflet handed out highlighted the aims and objectives of the Trust and included a Trust membership form and was distributed at the first home game of the 2003 season against Partick Thistle. All this in the lead up to the official launch of the Killie Trust which was on Friday 22nd August in the Park Suite at Rugby Park.

We will cover that launch night in the coming weeks or months on here but in the meantime if you have any comments or memories from back then, pre launch or launch, please get in touch by leaving a comment here or on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and we might include them in a future “From the Archives” article.
