1. Craig McGuffie

The latest player to step up from the Ayr United Football Academy to become a first team regular, the left-sided midfielder made a big impact on Ian McCall last season and the manager has high hopes for the Troon youngster. Spells on loan with top Junior side Glenafton in 2015 and 2016 have added steel to his trickery and technique and his stunning long-range half-volley against Hibernian was voted Goal of the Competition in last season’s Scottish Cup.
