in #KillieStories January 6, 2019

Supporters and club legends gathered to celebrate the first of Kilmarnock FC's 150th Anniversary events with a dinner at The Park Hotel.

Run in association with the Kilmarnock FC Supporters' Association, over 300 people were present to celebrate 150 years to the day since a meeting was held at Robertson's Temperance Hotel on January 5, 1869.

Host John Barnes guided proceedings on the night as Killie legends Kenny Shiels (League Cup winning Manager 2012), Ray Montgomerie (Scottish Cup winning captain 1997), Paul Wright (Scottish Cup goalscorer 1997), David Sneddon and Ronnie Hamilton (League Champions 1964/65) brought three prestigious trophies onto the stage at the start of the night.

The audience were treated to messages from Steve Clarke, club captain Kris Boyd as well as the first viewing of our new 150th Anniversary video before dinner was served.

A raffle and Q+A followed before speakers Gordon Sherry and Robbie Duncan entertained the crowd with Kilmarnock FC director Cathy Jamieson delivering a Vote of Thanks including to sponsors Precision Tooling.

The night ended with a video message from Marie Osmond before an emotional rendition of Paper Roses.
