Another season and another fantastic looking YK training kit for all our members. Thanks go to all the team at VISION OUTSOURCING for bringing our designs to life and for all your efficient service throughout the season.
In preparation for the new season, every adult volunteer of YK took part in a Child Protection In Sport awareness course run for us by East Ayrshire Council.
Pictured above is our newest (and youngest) Committee member, Jamie Chapman, receiving his certificate from the Chair of YK, Bobby Russell.
Many thanks to Jaspreet and Sitindra at THE FENWICK HOTEL for kindly sponsoring all the YK tracksuits for our team of volunteer coaches and committee.
Archie McDonald, a life-long Kilmarnock supporter, took training kit donated by the YK Committee out to Arua Primary School in Uganda, East Africa with him when he visited the area. Resplendant in their new kit, the boys won both the under 9's and under 14's football trophies,
"I am so greatful to the committee, coaches and children of Young Kilmarnock for giving me these football outfits to take to Arua and I’m sure they helped inspire the boys to their cup wins.”
The sell-out YK Annual Dinner/Dance at the Fenwick Hotel on 14th March was another smash hit.
The amazing sum of over £3000 was raised and every penny will be ploughed straight back out to benefit our members next season in a variety of ways.
Many, many thanks to all who generously donated fabulous auction and raffle prizes and to everyone who attended to make it such a special ‘not to be missed’ night once again.
Special thanks to Jaspreet, Sitindra, Caroline and all the staff at the Fenwick Hotel for their excellent service, Myra Craigen of 'Baloons and Blooms' for our decorations in the YK colours and to Dreamchaser for once again ensuring the dance floor was never empty.
Pencil Saturday 19th March 2016 into your diary for next year!
Our members were treated to an EGG-stra special treat at the Easter Saturday Club on 4th April. EGG-cellent!!
Season 2014/15 was a really significant season for all supporters of SUPER KILLIE as it marked the 50th anniversary of our team being crowned Scottish Champions when we won the League title for the first time.
YK celebrated this fantastic achievment with special badges on our training top sleeves.
Every YK member also received a special commemorative pennant.
Title winning legends, RONNIE HAMILTON and DAVIE SNEDDON, were very special visitors to the YK Saturday Club in April where they took time to answer questions and pose for many photographs.
An aqualung and flippers were required at the YK Golf day at Ballochmyle Golf Club on 3rd May and play was eventually abandoned following persistant heavy rain.
In true FIFA style, Sepp Blatter (Billy) declared himself the winner having organised the whole event, decided on everyone's handicap and marked his own card!!
It is hoped to rearrange this popular event sometime in September/October (2015). We'll keep you posted!
