Division 1 – Survival, By Two Points

The season was a disappointing one for Ayr and manager Archie Buchanan saw United just escape relegation with an 18th place finish.

The season was notable for an 11-2 win over non-league Clackmannan in the cup and of five away matches against Kilmarnock with mixed fortunes for Ayr. The good wins were more than outweighed by bad defeats such as a 9-0 loss to Hearts.
