Kilmarnock took part in the first ever official match in the Scottish Cup against the now defunct Renton in 1873.
The club's foundation dates back to the very earliest days of organised football in Scotland, when a group of local cricketers looking for a sporting pursuit to occupy them outside of the cricket season looked to form a football club.
Waddell's Kilmarnock in contrast had been nearly men.
Hearts had won five of the six senior cup finals they played in under Walker.
Even the final they had lost was in a replay after drawing the first game.
Kilmarnock Football Club, commonly known as Killie, is a Scottish football team based in the town of Kilmarnock, East Ayrshire.
The team is currently under the management of Steve Clarke.
