Cathy Jamieson (Trust Club Director)
My history with Supporters Trusts goes back pre-2000 when I was involved in campaigning through the co-operative movement for fan involvement and ownership of clubs. I was part of the Scottish Cabinet which first funded Supporters Direct in Scotland, attended the first event at Tynecastle - and joined the Killie Trust at the outset in 2003.
Prior to being appointed as a Club Director, I was on the Board of the Scottish Football Supporters Association. So my interest in fan representation and ownership has been a long-term commitment, as has my support for Killie!
Jim Thomson (Chair)
I’m a retired Police Inspector with a background in community and multi-agency partnership work. I started my career in the east end of Glasgow and then eventually worked all over Ayrshire, retiring in late 2008 after over 30 years’ service.
I have followed Killie home and away since 1968, through the teams many ‘ups and downs’...and have the grey hair to prove it. I’m a long-standing season ticket holder, minor shareholder, original Executive Club member (still got the keyring) and owner of another brick in the East Stand wall.
I joined the Trust on the day it was founded and was invited onto the Trust Board in 2009. I became Chairman in 2015 and truly believe that the only sustainable future for KFC in the long term is through the democratic, inclusive and good governance model that community ownership will bring.
James Morrison (Legal)
I was brought up in the shadow of Rugby Park and started attending games with my late father during the glorious 1960’s. I attended all the home games in the wonderful run to the semi final of the Fairs Cities Cup (now the Europa League) and still have those programmes as well as the one when Killie played Real Madrid in the European Cup! Sadly it was really downhill for the club for a while until I sensed the revival under the late great Tommy Burns.
I have been a season ticket holder for over 20 years and joined the Killie Trust when I was Chairman of KFCSA; I am still a Committee member of that organisation. I introduced my daughter to supporting Killie and she describes the 18th of March 2012 as one of the best days of her life! I have worked locally all my life and am a partner in the legal firm of McSherry Halliday which has offices in Kilmarnock, Irvine and Troon.
Gemma Milligan (Recruitment)
As a lifelong Killie fan, I wanted to get more involved with the community so I therefore put myself forward to be a Trust Director. As well as attending all home games I also attend most away games. I am passionate about what the supporters want and I feel I am a good voice for them.
Gordon Gillen (Communications)
I joined the Trust as a member and Board member in 2019 after hearing that the the new safe standing was funded by fans though the 'Trust In Killie' campaign. I am passionate about the importance of the role football clubs play in their community - and I feel that Trust projects are making a real difference in this area.
My own experience is in large organisation communications and policy writing and this is my main area of focus for the Trust.
I have been following Killie since the late 90s, apart from brief hiatuses as a season ticket holder at PSG and Fulham. There are so many highlights of my 20 years so far and choosing a favourite is difficult. That said, David Bagan's 'get out of jail' against KR and Eamonn Brophy's penalty in the last minute of the last game of 2018/19 are right up there. Pauleta at Parc Des Princes, Cairney at the Cottage or Rascle at Rugby Park? No contest!
Stuart Gilmour (Events)
I have a wealth of experience to offer the Trust and its members. Having my own entertainment company for over 10 years, I feel this is my area of expertise. My goal as the Trust Events Director is to make events interesting and fun for the Trust members and fans of the club.
My links with The Famous Ayrshire Killie stem back to when I was a young lad, at the age of 3 or 4 being flung on my uncle's shoulders and being taken to Rugby Park… having my dad play for the club also kept my interest in Killie going.
We will have a lot of new and exciting events coming up in the near future I just hope that I do my best for The Killie Trust and Kilmarnock Football Club. Mon The Killie!
