This may sound like a "yer da" type post and some might even read it with the hovis tune running round their head, but.....

There have been a fair few truely world class players graced RP over the years, if only the younger generation could have seen them, then compare them to some of the modern day Prima Donnas.....

Love it that you could buy tickets while getting your hair cut!

A totally different 'something for the weekend, sir?'

There can't be many towns the size of Kilmarnock around the world that have a club with so much history.  We have indeed been blessed :hurrah:

Able to buy football tickets and get a haircut?  That's just rubbing it in these days!

 

I remember R.B. Russell was a cutler?

 

There was a cutler called Russell who had a very tiny lean-to next to the railway viaduct.

Pretty much all the players I can think of have been mentioned.

Were any of Ravanelli's few games for Dundee at Rugby Park? I'd imagine he'd have looked pretty classy.

'fraid not.

That's right, next to Union Street halls.

Shearer was incredible when we played Blackburn Rovers - I ended up following him and Newcastle after that night. Mike Newell was none too shabby either. 

Best old firm player I seen up close n personal at RP was Michael Mols, his movement was incredible.

I would add Ivor Allchurch, who was an over-age Welsh under-23 player. He was easily the most under-rated player I have ever seen. Played for Wales under-23 at RP.

He was certainly well rated at the time but probably lost out historically due to the brilliance of his contemporary, John Charles. Didn’t he have a brother who also starred for Wales? Len?
