Gary Torbett, on behalf of The Killie (Community) Working Party said:
a??Further to the announcement by The Killie (Community) Working Party [on the 11th of February 2014] of its intention to offer to purchase the shareholding of Michael Johnston, Chairman of Kilmarnock Football Club, in the event that the club were to become debt free, we are extremely disappointed that Mr Johnston has so swiftly and publicly dismissed our intentions.
a??It is disappointing that this proposal has been dismissed so early into the process without any constructive dialogue with Mr Johnston. Mr Johnston has offered our group the opportunity to buy a seat on the board should it purchase circa 10% of the unallocated shares in the football club. It would not be appropriate for this particular group to purchase a tranche of shares at this time to obtain a seat on the board of Kilmarnock FC, given our stated purpose.
a??The group would welcome, indeed we would urge for, the opportunity to meet with the football club to establish a mutually agreeable route to genuine community ownership, which has the cluba??s long term future in mind.
a??Our doors remain firmly open to Mr Johnston.a??
Supporters Direct Scotland has also reiterated its willingness to work with both parties.
Nineteen year old midfielder Craig Slater has been named Scottish Premiership Young Player of the Month for January.
Craig made two appearances for Kilmarnock last season but has really cemented his place in the team over the last few months with a string of impressive performances.
The talented youngster has started the last thirteen matches in all competitions and has caught the eye thanks to his excellent range of passing and the composure that he displays on the ball.
Everyone at Kilmarnock Football Club would like to congratulate Craig on winning this award.
Stark adds new faces for Luxembourg test
Sunday, 11 November 2012
Scotland Interim National Coach Billy Stark has called-up a hat-trick of international debutants for Wednesday’s International Challenge Match against Luxembourg.
Kilmarnock’s Liam Kelly, Hibernian’s Leigh Griffiths and Inverness Caledonian Thistle’s Andrew Shinnie have all had their club form recognised after a series of weekend withdrawals.
Scotland will be without nine players from the original squad: James Morrison (groin), Phil Bardsley (hamstring), Steven Fletcher (ankle), Shaun Maloney (abdominal), Charlie Adam (groin), Matt Phillips (toe), Barry Bannan (knee), David Marshall (groin), Jamie Mackie (ankle).
However, Billy has used the opportunity to introduce fresh talent to the A squad. Kelly, Griffiths and Shinnie have been joined by Paul Dixon, the Huddersfield Town full back, and Craig Samson, the St Mirren goalkeeper.
“Obviously at this stage of the season, with players playing weekend and midweek, niggles and strains and withdrawals are to be expected,” said the national coach. “This match gives us an opportunity to look at players who maybe have not been had experience of the international set-up but who have been in tremendous form at their clubs.
“Leigh has been excellent for Hibernian and scored again yesterday. I know him from the under-21s and he is a talented player. Liam has been terrific for Kilmarnock and it is fitting that he gets an opportunity, while Andrew has been a real inspiration behind Inverness’s success so far this season.
“I wanted to keep the under-21 squad as settled as possible because they have a tough game against Portugal, and I know what the more experienced players who have not made the squad are capable of at this level so there is an element of experimentation to the additions.”
Out: James Morrison (groin), Phil Bardsley (hamstring), Steven Fletcher (ankle), Shaun Maloney (abdominal), Charlie Adam (groin), Matt Phillips (toe), Barry Bannan (knee), David Marshall (groin), Jamie Mackie (ankle).
In: Paul Dixon, Craig Samson, Andrew Shinnie, Liam Kelly, Leigh Griffiths.
Kilmarnock appeal against Cammy Bell red card upheld
Kilmarnock have had their appeal against the red card shown to goalkeeper Cammy Bell upheld.
The keeper was sent off after being judged to have fouled Ross Draper in the penalty box during last weekend's 2-1 defeat by Inverness CT.
The Ayrshire side lodged an appeal against the decision made by referee Euan Norris.
Beill will be available to face Ross County at Rugby Park on Saturday.
Billy McKay's converted spot-kick proved to be the winner at Rugby Park.
Killie boss Kenny Shiels, who made an official complaint about the conduct of Norris, believed Bell was treated harshly.

Ex-Celtic star Malky McDonald?s men raced into a two-goal lead at the break thanks to a couple of howlers from Irish goalie Beattie.
And despite a second-half onslaught, Killie would hold on to inflict Celtic?s first home defeat of the season.
The game got the go-ahead, unlike other matches affected by the snow. and the league leaders were hoping to make it five wins in a row.
But Jimmy McGrory?s men were stunned when Killie raced into a fourth-minute lead. Curlett?s shot through a ruck of players somehow found its way into the corner of Beattie?s net.
And it got worse for Celtic 34 minutes later when Curtlett?s weak shot trundled under the body of Beattie and into the goal.
Celtic lay siege to the Ayrshire side?s goal in the second half, but found Killie keeper Jimmy Brown in inspired form.
He made a point-blank save from a Willie Fernie drive.
And even when Celtic did beat him, they had no luck, as Neil Mochan showed when he hit the post in the second half.
Former Celtic defender Alex Rollo then cleared a Bobby Collins effort off the line as Kilmarnock held on.
CELTIC (2-3-5): Beattie; Haughney, Meechan; Conroy, Evans, Peacock; Higgins, Fernie, Sharkey, Collins, Mochan.
KILMARNOCK (2-3-5): Brown; Watson, Rollo; Taggart, Toner, Mackay; Mays, Harvey, Curlett, Beattie, Fletcher.
