Division 1 – Survival And A League Cup Semi

Ayr United began a new season in Division One and sensationally had not lose even a goal after two matches tn_Rangers (h) 13 Sep 69and then beating Rangers in match three to top the league.Â

A good Scottish League Cup run took United to a semi-final against Celtic which Ayr took to a replay before bowing out to the slenderous of margins.Â

A 14th place finish and survival in the first division was all that mattered to United however.
