Kilmarnock History

Kilmarnock Football Club was founded on 5 January 1869, making them the second-oldest football club in Scotland behind only Queen’s Park. They later became founding members of the Scottish Football Association along with Queen’s Park, Clydesdale, Vale of Leven, Dumbreck, Third Lanark, Eastern and Granville. Kilmarnock initially joined the Scottish Football Alliance before finally joining the Scottish Football League in 1895.

Kilmarnock’s most successful period came under the guidance of Willie Waddell, who was in charge of the club between 1957-1965. He turned Kilmarnock into one of the strongest teams in the country between 1960-64, during which they finished as runners-up in the top flight on four occasions, as well as runners-up in the Scottish Cup and twice in the Scottish League Cup. However, their hard work over the era was finally rewarded with a trophy as they won the 1964/65 Scottish title. He left the club at the end of the season, signalling a new period of dominance from Celtic, who had appointed Jock Stein as manager. Two years later, Killie had their best-ever showing in European football too as they reached the reached the semi-finals of the Inter-Cities Fairs Cup but lost against Leeds United 4-2 on aggregate.
