You've Been Served
Prior to the home match against Inverness, the KFCSA Committee arranged to present the petition they have been running, to get director Michael Johnston removed from the board, to the football club. The man himself was nowhere to be seen at Rugby Park half an hour before kick off, as has been the case of late, but fellow directors John Kiltie and Billy Bowie deputised in his absence and the paperwork was served.
James Morrison, Chairman of the Association said: "Many thanks to almost 3,000 Killie fans for signing the KFCSA petition regarding the continued presence of former Club Chairman Michael Johnston on the Board of Kilmarnock FC. The fans have clearly made their feelings known, and will continue to do so. Interestingly the petition has been signed by previous board members including former Chairman Jim Mann, Russel Smith, David Moran and Jim Clark."
He continued: "KFCSA believe it is now up to the Club’s shareholders, and the remaining two board members, to take appropriate action to have Mr Johnston removed from the Board; if Mr Johnston leaves the Board of Scotland’s oldest professional club it is hoped that investors who have been deterred by the current set up will again step forwards."
The Association will be continuing to look at ways to effect change that will get the football club back on the right track and get fans and sponsors interested again. They would like the fans to keep protesting at the 18th and 69th minute of matches and will continue to investigate the feasibility of opening an escrow account to hold next terms season ticket money as proposed at their recent SGM.
