Ayr United continued their improvement under manager Frank Thompson after returning to the First Division with a 14thtn_Celtic (a) 3 Nov 38 place finish thanking home wins like the 6-1 victory over Motherwell and 4-1 against Arbroath a for this higher placing.

There were some high scoring defeats also.

A friendly match against English club Barnsley was played in April as a benefit match for John Taylor
