Division 1 – Record Attendance at Somerset Park

Ayr United had a particularly good season finishing in 8th position.

A new crowd record attendance for Somerset Park was achieved when 23,651 turned up at for a Scottish Cup tie against Celtic, unfortunately only to see the Honest Men lose 3-2 to the Glasgow side. The season began chaotically with a number of high scoring matches – 8-0 and 9-1 against United in the first two games which sent alarm bells ringing around Somerset Park – to be followed by 4-3 and 7-3 wins for the Honest Men.

Manager Alex Gibson saw the ship steady over the next few weeks moving Ayr up the league.

Highlight of the season was a 3-0 win at Celtic Park in March 1934.
