‘B’ Division – High Scoring Defeats for Ayr

Ayr finished in eleventh position, only two points above bottom place in what was a high scoring season. there was an tn_Aberdeen (a) 8 Feb 47early Supplementary Cup defeat by 4-0 to Dunfermline and a 5-4 league cup defeat against Albion Rovers. However it was a leaky defence that saw as many as 5, 6 and 7 goals being conceded with little reply.

Later in the season Ayr managed a 5-0 win over non-league Peterhead, but suffered an 8-0 rebuff in the next round against Aberdeen.

There was a little light relief for Ayr in a friendly match against some Polish prisoners of war still in the area but even their prowess was sufficient to beat Ayr by 2-1.
