Biography

Ayr United are delighted to announce Scott Brown and Steven Whittaker as the club’s new management team, joining as Head Coach and Assistant Head Coach on contracts until at least June 2026.

Following the announcement, Club Chairman David Smith said “I am delighted to welcome Scott and Steven as the new management team. We have had a busy 8 days conducting informal conversations and more formal interviews with a number of very credible candidates and Scott and Steven showed lots of positive attributes that made them the preferred candidates for the club.

They are clear in the messages they want to communicate to the players and will use the staff group that we have assembled to the fullest in order to improve players and achieve performances and results on the pitch.They have a very good personal and working relationship and were very clear on how their dynamic works.

We are delighted to secure their services and are very much looking forward to working with them going forward”

Managing Director, Graeme Mathie said “I’m really looking forward to working with Scott and Steven.

Following their successful playing careers, both have undertaken coaching roles alongside gaining their coaching qualifications; Scott at Aberdeen before joining Fleetwood as Head Coach and Steven at Dunfermline in the Scottish Championship.

Having both played at the very highest level they are both aware of the standards required to be successful, and - whilst we won’t be able to provide the luxury of some of the resources they’ve enjoyed previously - they have shown an ability to adapt to the environments they have been working in when required.

This is an exciting appointment for Ayr United and I have no doubt will be remembered as an exciting period of time on our journey.”
