TEAMtalk: How did you come to support Killie and what are your favourite memories from your time as a fan?
James: We support Kilmarnock, our local club – as everyone should! Haha, so it was an easy choice of club. We grew up in a fairly small town, so it was amazing to walk down to the ground and see the number of scarves and flags slowly grow as you turned each corner to the ground.
TEAMtalk: Who have been your favourite five players for your club? (Historically or currently)
James: Ally Mitchell – a small and gifted natural footballer who we enjoyed at our early years watching the team. I remember Ben and I saw Ally and a couple of the players walking through town one day, and thinking we had seen God almighty!
All aboard the Tommy Wright steamtrain
TEAMtalk: What are your hopes for the rest of the season and what do you make of the current side?
James: I think we have a reasonable squad of players and a few excellent ones, but we have lost our way over the last 12 months or so. It was sad that Alex Dyer’s tenure came to an end, but results made that so. Hopefully the players and fans can get behind new man Tommy Wright and I do think he is a good appointment. Good luck Tommy!
TEAMtalk: Everyone has a soft spot for another team. Who’s yours and why?
James: It was hard not to have a soft spot for Manchester United as a young Scottish football fan in the 90’s… Fergie was such a compelling manager to follow and his teams were so exciting to watch.
TEAMtalk: What’s going on with the band at the moment?
James: Well like everybody, we’re trying to navigate a pretty bumpy road, which I’m not sure where it’s leading! However we’re trying to stay busy and are always working on music in whatever way we can, but I’m counting down the days til live music comes back into our world – I miss it so much!
