Harvey Gilmour, younger brother of Scotland international Billy Gilmour, has left Kilmarnock FC.

It comes alomst exactly a year after the talented youngster signed his first professional contract with the Rugby Park side.

The Ardrossan youngster signed the terms in May of last year - keeping him contracted to the club until this year.

But the Ayrshire side confirmed on Thursday, June 8, that the youngster is one of eight academy/development players who have left the club.

It comes despite an impressive campaign where Gilmour played a key role in a successful season for the club's under-18 side.

The teen leaves having spent ten years at the club he joined aged just seven.

He made a farewell post on Instagram earlier this month - thanking all those that have helped him on his journey so far.


Gilmour said: "From joining Kilmarnock at the age of seven-years-old all the way through to playing my last game, I have made so many great memories in my 10 years here.

"Signing my first professional contract and being able to share my journey with such a great group of boys will always be remembered.

"I would also like to thank all the coaches and staff that I have worked with throughout this time for helping me get to where I am today."

What the nexts steps will be for the youngster is not yet clear - though it is known that Harvey had previously been on the radar of his brother's former club, Chelsea.

And with the footballing talent that evidently runs in the family, he surely won't be without a club for long.
