Champions of Scotland !

52 years ago today Kilmarnock Football Club defeated Heart of Midlothian 2-0 at Tynecastle to be crowned Scottish Football Champions. No team from outside a city has done this since - and may never again.

Killie went on to play in what is now called The Champions League in 1966-67, drawing with the mighty Real Madrid at Rugby Park. The following season they made it to the Semi Final of what is now known as The Europa League. Halcyon days indeed !

Kilmarnock Rugby Football Club - can you help ?

Our friends at Kilmarnock Rugby Football Club will celebrate their 150th anniversary in 2018. They are the 4th oldest rugby club in Scotland and are planning a number of events throughout 2018 - starting almost as soon as the sound of the New Year Bells has softened.

Bill Barnaby- probably well known to many of our members as he is a weel kent face in these pairts- will be updating Jock Thomson's Centenary History - 'More Than a Game'- to mark the occasion.

Bill and his elves would welcome sight of any memorabilia you may have which may help this task. He would also love to hear tales from Bellsland - or the old Academy Pavilion if you are of a certain age - and welcome a chat or any newspaper articles, photos, magazines, programmes etc. which you may have.

Please contact KDHG via or Bill via
We would love to hear from you and make this project a resounding success.

Many thanks.
