1972-73 Kilmarnock FC

Season Notes: After 19 years in division one Kilmarnock are relegated. After selling international goalie Ally Hunter  to Celtic in Dec. Killie had "ready-made" replacement in the form of future Scotland International Jim Stewart waiting in the wings. Killie's fate came down to the last day of the season, and could manage only a 2-2 draw at home to Falkirk, after being up 2-0 at the half. To make matters worse it was Ross Mathie's goals for Dumbarton that sealed Killie's fate. Mathie had been transferred from Killie to their fellow strugglers only months earlier .....Why no one will ever know !! Killie also dump their famous Blue White stripes (see program). Eddie Morrison tops all Killie scorers with 16 goals. Jackie McGrory retires from the game.
