Division 2 – Three Managers in One Season Unsettles Ayr

The season of the three managers saw manager Jackie Cox leave the club after a poor start.

Bobby Flavell come to Ayr from St Mirren only to return to Paisley 17 days later.

Gerry Mays could only steer the recently relegated United to a disappointing 9th place in the second division.

A few high scoring wins were the only consolation in a very disruptive season.
