We set off from Carlisle at around 10 and made the 90 Mile trek up the A75 and A76 which took just under 2 hours you can do the Journey quicker by using the M74 and M77 but it’s 30 miles longer if you have the time then the A76 is a much Scenic route. Arriving in Kilmarnock just after 12 I took the Kids to the Jungle soft play centre for them to run around for a few hours. At about 2 we drove down to the ground parking up on a side street.
Kilmarnock went on to win the game 2-1 but the match was spoiled by a sending off in the 2nd Minute Queen fought hard from that moment onwards but the extra man showed and Kilmarnock strolled to win easy although Queens had there chances to gain a replay and were mostly the more attacking side in the second half despite having 10 men I had no time to write a report as the 2 boys kept me busy but you can read one Here
After the game we quickly made an exit and followed the Queens fans back down the A76 it was a slow return but after Dumfries the A75 was mostly Quiet
