Rugby XI. Information request.

Do any sporting historians out there have any knowledge of Rugby XI from Kilmarnock?
They seem to have existed between 1889 & 1910, being the first Ayrshire team to reach the Scottish Junior Cup final. They played at Rugby Park and may have been Kilmarnock reserves, but this is not clear.
I do know that the line up for the final, which was lost to Maryhill in 1900, was; McLung, Robertson, Banks, Higgins, Johnstone, Woodburn, McIntyre, Parker, Green, Graham & Aitchison.

If you have any information, please contact me on Thanks

  1. Presumably the final was played around May or June 1900. Have you looked in the Kilmarnock Standard for that time? If I'm up at the Burns MC I'll have a look for you.
