Division 2 – Ayr Make Heavy Work Of Campaign

New man Archie Anderson began his first full season in charge and saw United put in some good performances totn_Morton (h) 13 Aug 49 secure good wins such as a 5-0 beating of Forfar Athletic and 5-3 away to Albion Rovers.

But heavy defeats such as 7-0 against Morton and 4-1 away to Forfar Athletic made life difficult for Ayr and saw them slide to a very poor 13th place in the league.

There was some joy in an Ayrshire Cup two legged victory over Kilmarnock but Ayr were dumped out of the Scottish Cup 4-0 by Dundee United and then lost 7-1 in a admittedly meaningless Stirlingshire Cup match against Stirling Albion.

There was a first meeting with Newcastle United for charity fundraisng.
