Shirkie signs!

Dale Shirkie this afternoon put pen to paper and signed with United for this season. Dale is a product of the Motherwell academy and played 30 times for Motherwell under 20s last season.

Manager Mark Roberts was delighted to get him on board and said “Dale has something to prove after leaving Motherwell and as a local lad knows what it means to play for a club like Ayr. Dale is something different to what we have, hes quick, big and athletic and can play up front or in an advanced midfield role.”

Shirkie, 19, is in the squad for tomorrows match at Stirling.
