Doc signs as new club captain

Ross Docherty today signed a new deal for the 2017/18 season and has been appointed the new Ayr United club captain.

Manager Ian McCall said :”I feel Doc can improve an extra 25% with full time football. He never hides, even when he isn’t having the best of games he wants the ball. He might not be the loudest on the park but he deserves to be captain as he leads by example and is very well respected inside the dressing room. He is a player I have always liked and I am delighted to get him on board for this coming season.”

Ayr United Media interviewed Doc after his signing which will be aired later this evening.

Doc signed for the club at the start of the promotion winning season of 2015/16 and swept the end of season player of the year awards. His style of play always endeared him to our supporters and his importance is shown anytime he has missed a game through injury. He has played 77 times for United scoring 2 goals.
