KFCSA & Trust Statement
On Saturday, the Killie Trust held their AGM at the Crown Inn, Kilmarnock, which was followed by Kilmarnock Supporters' Association's special general meeting, which unanimously approved a new modern constitution.
Following the meetings, a helpful and informative discussion took place, which included an interesting and revealing question and answer session with former director Russel Smith, who recently resigned from the football club board.
The supporters attending decided that:
1. The petition regarding former club chairman Michael Johnston will be available on Saturday for fans who still want to sign and are attending the match against Dundee.
2. Fans wishing to protest vocally are asked to focus on the 18th and 69th minutes in future games, starting on Saturday at Rugby Park. Fans felt that a suitable chant was ‘Michael Johnston- you're killing our club’
3. Fans who wish to protest after the match on Saturday are asked to assemble at the main entrance door of the Frank Beattie stand to hold their protest.
4. Those fans wishing to do so should also boycott the snack bars.
5. Fans were also informed that the KFCSA are actively looking into an escrow account for supporters to deposit season ticket money if the current situation was not resolved.
Russel Smith highlighted that the club seemed to lurch from crisis to crisis with no long term business strategy in place. He was highly frustrated with the running of the club, which ultimately led him to resigning from the club’s board.
KFCSA would urge all Kilmarnock supporters to join the Killie Trust as the Trust can secure the long term future of the club.
