‘B’ Division – Another Mediochre Season

Once again Ayr failed to deliver anything other than a mediochre season based on very mediochre performances. A 10th tn_Leith Athletic (h) 27 Mar 48place was marginally better than before but United were still leaking goals. However on the positive side there were some good wins such as a 6-2 win over Dunfermline Athletic in November and a 6-0 win over Stenhousemuir in February.

There was some revenge buy knocking Dunfermline Athletic out of the Scottish Supplemnetary Cup eventually secumbing to Albion Rovers and Morton ended Scottish Cup hopes.
