Division 1 – 17th Place For Ayr

Ayr United continued their struggle to secure first division status.

One point separated the seven teams between 13th and 19th place, Dundee being the unlucky side in the final relegation slot.

Ayr finished in 17th place ahead of rivals Kilmarnock. It was a season of 1-1 draws for Ayr and some high scoring losses and victories.

It was also a season of Scottish Cup replays with no less than three rounds being settled by a second match including a devastating cup defeat by Kilmarnock.
