Yes, but that’s not the point :D

No, I know it isn't. Surprised to hear that, don't really know about the walking football side of things but I thought our football memories set-up was pretty good.

Yeh, my old man sponsors quite a bit through the Fair Trade movement. I'm sure him and Grant from the community coaching team were at the Scottish Parliament recently to get recognised for the work they do.

They’ve got a very big WF set up at Pro Soccer in Ayr. But they’ve also promoted it in Maybole, Prestwick, Troon, Girvan and Cumnock.

Scouting potential signings no doubt

I have a good few mates that are involved with the Ayr United Football Academy, and I can tell you they are way ahead of us with reaching out to the smaller communities with stuff like walking football, football memories etc. Their walking football set up is probably about ten times bigger. 

Reaching out to the communities was good under the Kenny Shiels era. Certainly from what you are saying Killie could be doing much more in that respect.

My cousin and husband (Cumnock) opted for their son to sign for them instead of Killie a few years back - was still MJ era so our investment/resources were probably poorer then, but I would have hoped we were in a better position now.

I’m hoping you didn’t marry your cousin, unless you’re a minister or celebrant of course!? :S
