font-size: 20pt;>Full Results Against Ashington

Some 13 years after Ayr United went to Ashington in the North East of England to play Newcastle United to raise funds for th YMCA, non-league side Ashington themselves came to play Ayr at Somerset Park on 18th April 1964.

The Newcasle United connections did not end there. Ashington, of course, was the home of the Newcastle United legendary Jackie Milburn and Ashington themselves trooped onto Somerset Park kitted out in a Newcastle United strip.

The Honest Men may have been forgiven for thinking that they were playing the famous Geordie club being 2-0 down at half time. However a second half goal from Frew and two from Kilgannon ensured a a 3-2 win for Ayr.

No programme was produced for the match.
