1974-75 Kilmarnock FC

Seson Notes: In this season of 74/75, Alan Robertson, who had assisted in many of Killie’s Second Division victories with his lung-bursting overlapping runs, played in every game bar one, an excellent record of consistency. Killie bounced back after a heavy opening day defeat at Parkhead to stuff the Honest Men 3-0 at Rugby Park. Killie would go on to hold their own, finishing mid table. Alas it was not enough to gain entry into the elite league. Killie had to defeat Jim McLean’s Dundee United at Rugby Park in the last game of the season to have any chance of qualifying.

Killie couldn’t live with Paul Sturrock and Co. Killie finished the season in twelfth position. Killie were in effect relegated to the middle ‘league’ or First Division. One of the most memorable games from this season was probably the 3-3 League Cup televised draw with Hibs. The Killie team that September evening was: Stewart, Maxwell, Robertson, I.McCulloch, Rodman, McDicken, McSherry, Fleming, Eddie, Sheed and Smith.

At the AGM in early 1975, chairman Bob Thyne announced the Club had finished the promotion winning season £13,000 in the black.
