Jordan moves on

After discussions between himself and manager Ian McCall, goalkeeper Jordan Hart has left Ayr United Football Club.

Jordan leaves with the best wishes of everyone at Ayr United and we would like to thank him for the part he played in the title winning season.

New PA System

Over  the last few weeks we have had a completely new PA system installed around the ground. This has been tested and provides fantastic coverage in all areas, including the North Terracing and inside the Hospitality boxes.

The previous system was installed in the 1970s and I am sure all our fans would agree it needed an upgrade.

The upgrade has been provided by the Ayr United Five Star Lottery. Once all prize money and running costs are deducted every single penny from the lottery goes back into the club and recently that money has been used for essential ground improvements.

We are looking to make this the biggest event yet and make the evening a fantastic opportunity for local businesses to come together in the one place, support our football club and meet new people. It goes without saying that we will be proudly displaying the League One trophy on the night so there will be plenty of photo opportunities.”

Season tickets & Gate prices

We are delighted to confirm that season tickets will go on sale on Thursday (evening) 17th May online and in store.

There is an incredible feeling around Somerset Park at the moment and we have been delighted with the response of our fans to winning the League One title.

Now is the time we need your support more than ever. We are going to face an extremely strong Ladbrokes Championship and in order to compete we will be trying to provide our manager with all available funding. The main source of this will come from season tickets and the more we sell the bigger our playing budget.

To ensure we are able to compete we have looked at the prices around the league and concluded that, for the first time in many years, we needed to have a small increase.

Season Ticket prices for 2018/19 are as follows

ADULT – 240

CONCESSION – 140

CHILD – 55

PANDA PALS – 20

Gate Prices for 2018/19 season are as follows

ADULT – 17

CONCESSION – 11

CHILD – 6

Our season tickets have not arrived yet and are still in production however they will arrive shortly and will be posted out on arrival. We will confirm when they arrive.

Manager Ian McCall has also asked that we mention the AU 500 fund as he looks to add to the squad for the new season. The fund has seen extra members join since we lifted the trophy and an upsurge in members would make an enormous difference to this coming season. To find out more visit www.au500fund.com

Players released

Today Paddy Boyle, Craig Reid, Lyle Avci and David Waite were informed that they will not be offered a new contract with the club.

Manager Ian McCall said :”We wish all these boys all the very best for the future. Especially to Paddy and Craig who were integral in our fantastic season.

Paddy Boyle has spent the last three years at Somerset Park and has won promotion from League One in two of those three seasons. He also captained the club this season until injury cut his season short.

Craig Reid joined the club at the beginning of this season and made over twenty appearances in our title winning season.

Everyone at Ayr United thanks all four players for their efforts while at the club and wishes them luck for the future.

The Trophy.

Ayr United Football Club – League One Champions 2017/18. It has a fantastic sound to it and we are wanting to tell as many people about it this Summer as possible.

We have started taking the trophy to sponsors and advertisers and if you have backed us financially and would like us to bring the trophy to your business then please get in touch.

Or if you would like to discuss our sponsorship and advertising options please contact our commercial manager Graeme Miller or 01292 263435 ext 3 or by email commercial@ayrunitedfc.co.uk. We would be delighted to bring the trophy along to help with publicity.

We would also love to take the trophy to local schools. Already this week we have confirmed we will be visiting Braehead and Newton Primary and Ayr Grammar. Get in touch with Graeme if you would like to have the trophy at your school.
