Division 1 – 9-0 Drubbing Unsteadies Ayr

Ayr United survived another difficult season in Division 1 but, despite some horrendous results such as a 9-0 drubbing at Ibrox and 7-1 at Cowdenbeath, they finished in a respectable 9th position. Manager Archie Buchanan saw his side record a number of good wins such as a 6-1 win over Dundee United 5-1 over Aberdeen.

It was also the season of FOUR home matches against Kilmarnock, one in the league, one in the Ayrshire Cup Final and two in two Ayr Charity Cup finals with Ayr never being on the losing side.
