Division 2 – Rebuilding At Ayr

The fall out from the previous disastrous season made it hungover Somerset Park and mitigated against an tn_Arbroath (h) 23 Dec 67automatic return to the First Division. Nevertheless the young Ally McLeod managed to stabilise the club and achieved a very creditable 5th place. The league campaign though had results ranging from a 5-2 home wine against Albion Rovers to a 5-1 defeat at Brechin City

Ayr also earned another Scottish League Cup quarter final place losing out to Celtic at that stage.
