Eric Skora


Eric Skora

Eric Skora (born 20 August 1981) is a former French professional footballer who last played for Kilmarnock in the Scottish Premier League.

Skora, a midfielder, began his career at AS Nancy before joining English club Preston. He also played for Walsall during a (on loan) spell.

Skora is somewhat of a cult hero among Kilmarnock fans after impressing during a loan spell in 2004. Although he wished to stay with the club, Preston recalled him and Kilmarnock did not have sufficient funds to buy the player. However, when Skora was freed from his Preston contract in January 2006, Kilmarnock signed him on a 6 month contract. He did not make an appearance during his second spell with the club, after picking up an injury in a reserve team match against Inverness CT.

In early May 2007, Skora signed a contract extension with Killie to stay on for another two years.
