James Fowler played for Killie from 1997 to 2014 from which he holds the record 402 appearances from any player in the now defunct SPL. He made 460 Killie appearances in all. He was a team mate there of future QoS Managers, Gus McPherson & Jim McIntyre. He also had a 2 month spell on loan at Cowdenbeath in early 2014. He collected three u21 & one 'B' international caps. Fowler captained Killie in the 2012 League Cup Final 1-0 win against Celtic.
