Full Results Against Falkirk

Falkirk Football Club is a Scottish professional association football club based in the town of Falkirk. The club was founded in 1876 and was elected to the Second Division of the Scottish Football League in 1902/03, was promoted to the First Division after two seasons and achieved its highest league position in the early 1900s when it was runner-up to Celtic in 1907/08 and 1909/10. The football club was registered as a Limited Liability Company in April 1905 as ‘Falkirk Football & Athletic Club Ltd’.

Falkirk won the Scottish Cup for the first time in 1913. After 1945, Falkirk were promoted and demoted between the Premier and First Divisions seven times until 1995/96, and during the 1970s spent three seasons in the Second Division. In 2005, Falkirk were promoted to the Scottish Premier League (SPL).

Falkirk won the Scottish Cup again in 1957 and were runners-up in the competition in 1997, 2009 and 2015. As a result of its performance in the 2009 Scottish Cup, the club qualified for the inaugural season of the UEFA Europa League in 2009/10. Falkirk have won the second tier of Scottish football a record seven times, an honour shared with St Johnstone. They have also won the Scottish Challenge Cup more than any other club, winning it for the fourth time in 2012.

In their early years, Falkirk played at three venues: Hope Street, Randyford Park and Blinkbonny Park. Between 1885 and 2003, the club was based at Brockville Park, built on the former Hope Street ground. After the creation of the SPL in 1998, its strict stadium criteria – to which Brockville Park did not conform – was enforced, and the club was denied promotion on three occasions. The club’s present home ground since 2003 is the Falkirk Stadium, an 7,937 all-seater stadium on the outskirts of Falkirk.

Ayr United have never had a good record against Falkirk at Brockville although began well in that first ever visit to Falkirk on 8th September 1913 when Ayr United won 3-1. A few years later United won again, this time by 2-1. The early 20’s produced a series of draws but on 20th October 1934 Ayr suffered a humilating 8-1 defeat in a first division match.

Results over the last few years have not been so kind although Ayr United did pull of a sensational victory at Brockville on 24th February 2001. A 2-1 win hauled Ayr into 2nd place in the league and launched an assault on the one and only promotion place, alas no to no avail.

However in the 8th May 1991 First Division clash at Brockville Park, Falkirk recorded an emphatic 4-1 victory.

Ayr were set up as the lambs to the slaughter for Falkirk, a part they played like naturals. Falkirk needed the points for promotion to the Premier League and there was never any doubt who would win. Simon Stainrod scored in 53 seconds and McGivern put them 2-0 up with 10 minutes to go. By the time Ian McAllister nodded Ayr’s consolation in the last minute, another 2 had been despatched behind David Purdie, the unfortunate Ayr goalkeeper.

Ayr did record a victory at Brockville on 9th September 1989, a solitary goal scored in the 7th minute by David Kennedy gave Ally McLeod his 200th league win as manager.
