He was then chosen to be a part of the first team squad, as a substitute, throughout December 2016. He was a substitute for games against Dundee, Aberdeen, Hearts and Patrick Thistle, and then during the game against St Johnstone he got his first big break. It was during a substitute change in the 70th minute of the premiership game, that he was told to leave the bench and get on the field. He partnered former internationalist Kris Boyd up front against St Johnstone at Killie’s home ground Rugby Park. What an achievement! When asked how it felt he said “It was a surreal and amazing experience”. Well done again Innes. We are all very proud of you here at Marr.
