Inside The New Killie Magazine
Corrie Ndaba is the cover star of the brand-new edition of Killie Magazine – fresh off the press and now available in the superstore.
Headlining a 67-page copy, the Dublin-born defender reflects on a rapid start to life in Ayrshire and shares his determination to live a childhood dream, which has saw him cover just about every blade of the Rugby Park turf.
“I’ve played left-back, I’ve played left wing-back, and I’ve played centre-half as well. I can probably even play CDM if needed. I don’t really mind where it is. If the manager tells me to play in goal, I’ll play in goal!”
“I just love football. I think I’m a bit of a chameleon now – I can just get on with everyone. You can put me anywhere in the world and, as long as I’m playing football, I’m happy.”
The son of a geography teacher – ironically a Hearts fan from Glasgow – it’s no surprise that on-form Under-18s forward Zander Craik took an ‘off the beaten track’ route towards Rugby Park.
THE CURIOUS CASE OF…ERIC JOLY
Killie Magazine takes on a cold case investigation into a highly implausible set of events. Following a couple of brief sightings in Ayrshire, it’s time to put the spotlight on the man of mystery – the apparent brother-in-law of Freddie Dindeleux.
THE FRANK BEATTIE TAPES
October 2023 marks 90 years since the birth of a Kilmarnock Football Club great. The player whose name adorns the main stand, the captain who lifted the 1965 Championship trophy. Frank Beattie’s 17-year, 560-match, one-club professional career is the stuff of legend. Killie Magazine reflects on the momentous achievement through archive interviews with the defensive rock.
MCGOWNE’S MAN OF THE MOMENT
Check back in with 97’ cup winner Kevin McGowne as he selects his Killie Player of the Month: a midfielder who stuck out by “a country mile” – grab a copy to discover who caught his eye.
‘SUPER KILLIE AWAY’ KIT COMPETITION
Attending Rugby Park in recent years, you’ll have witnessed a growing number of supporters grabbing from the retro rail as part of their pre-match rituals. You can gain some insight into the success of the Killie retro range and the results of a month-long tournament to determine the next entry.
THE PROMOTION CHASERS
Dissect the fans’ view by placing a microscope on the recently published Killie Trust 2023 Survey which gave supporters a chance to have their say on a wide range of issues. See who you recognise around the ground in the latest ‘spotted’ feature, before testing your knowledge in the Killie quiz.
The new edition of Killie Magazine is available to buy for £4 in the Killie Superstore at Rugby Park.
