A half-baked reputation?

THEY have recently had to defend their town against claims it is the worst place to live in Scotland.

But now residents of Kilmarnock can smile smugly in the knowledge that at least their football stadium's pies are officially the best in the country.

The Killie Pie, produced by Browning's the Bakers, was named the top out of creations from 42 different football clubs in the dedicated category at the World Scotch Pie Championships.

John Gall, managing director of Browning's, said they had been "quietly confident that the fans' favourite would take top spot". He added: "I'm over the moon with this award as it shows what we have always known, in that our Killie Pie is the best tasting in Scotland.

"With so much doom and gloom stories emerging about Kilmarnock as a town recently it's great to give the people in this area something to smile about."

The overall winner of the World Scotch Pie Championships, run by Scottish Bakers and the Scottish Federation of Meat Traders, will be announced in January.
