Division 1 – Re-Organisation Survival For Ayr

With the division being reduced to one of 12 teams, five teams were due to be relegated at the end of the season meaning that a tn_Blackburn Roverrs (h) 28 Jul 93 Testgood start was essential for any club hoping to miss the cull.

Results, although disappointing for Ayr had not been disastrous and Ayr were holding their own in the league. It was therefore a little surprising when Ayr manager George Burley was sacked in December 1993 admittedly in the wake of a 6-1 defeat by Dunfermline and falure to beat Falkirk.

RHe was replaced by Simon Stainrod under whose managment esults did not improve and could have been said to have become worse under the new manager.

In the Scottish Cup it took a second half penalty to give Killie a 2-1 win.

In the end United missed the drop but were fortunate to do so, finishing a mere six points outside the relegation zone.
