The Kilmarnock Football Club is pleased to announce the appointment of Allen Kyle as the Club’s Supporter Liaison Officer (SLO).
Allen, who has been a season ticket holder at Rugby Park for over 30 years and is currently vice-chairman of the Kilmarnock Football Club Supporters Association (KFCSA), will start his new role with immediate effect.
The role of SLO is recognised by UEFA and the Scottish FA in the context of the Club Licensing regulatory framework and is therefore an important component in the Club’s relationship with its supporters.
UEFA see three key main objectives for an SLO:
- Managing the flow of communications between fans and the Club shareholders.
- Assisting and advising fans.
- Liaising with safety officers, police and stewards to minimise potential issues.
After his appointment, Allen said: “I’m delighted to accept the role of SLO. I have followed the Club for many years through the leagues and have witnessed some unforgettable Club triumphs, so I know what it is to be a Killie fan. My main aim is to make sure that I aid and improve the relationship between the Club and supporters’ groups/individual fans. It is also important to maintain regular contact with my opposite number at fellow league clubs so we can enhance the match day experience for both our own and visiting fans”
The appointment of Allen as SLO is integral in maintaining and improving communication throughout the Club, both internally and externally. Allen’s commitment to the Club over many years will have provided him with the knowledge and skills required to carry out his role effectively. The Board of Directors and staff welcome this appointment and wish Allen every success”
