  4. We had a brief chat once we stopped recording and Tommy was keen to say again just how much he valued his time at the club. A really modest, nice guy. "The skill factor was possibly myself and Davie Sneddon." POSSIBLY!

  9. Only one player in Kilmarnock FC's 150-year history has been the top scorer for the league champions...Ronnie Hamilton. Still the club's youngest-ever player, Ronnie talks about the special night in 1964 when Killie were five goals ahead against Celtic. The 5-2 victory set a marker for the Ayrshire men, on route to the club's sole league title. As player, European goalscorer, title-winner, coach, board member, Chairman and supporter, Ronnie Hamilton's service to Kilmarnock can be counted in decades. The episode is now live on podbean, and will appear on Apple, Pocket Casts, Spre
