Edward Kenneth "Kenny" Taylor was born in Irvine, Scotland, on 17 May 1956. In the late seventies, coach Jim Adam left Australia bound for the United Kingdom on a scouting mission for his club, Fitzroy United Alexander. The Philips Soccer League was formed in 1977, the first national sporting competition in Australia, and Fitzroy was a founding club. Having spotted Taylor, Adam offered him a contract and a new life in Australia. Taylor jumped at the opportunity.
From 1977 to 1983, Taylor played in midfield for Fitzroy - the club changed its name to Heidelberg United to start the 1979 season. Taylor made 120 appearances for Heidelberg, scoring 15 goals (including the club's first in the PSL against Sydney City Hakoah).
In 1983, he switched to Footscray J.U.S.T., where he stayed for two seasons before retiring from top flight soccer. In 1986, he won a Victorian State League title with Croydon City. He also holds a World Masters Games gold medal.
As a native of Scotland, one of Taylor's career highlights was representing Victoria against Dundee. The Victorian State team beat the Dee, 2-1.
This design incorporates Taylor's curly seventies afro and the black stripes of the Bergers. On the back, his playing number, seven.
