  1. Challenge Cup 2017-18

    Sunday isn't an option this year as the air show is on both Saturday and Sunday. Last year it was Friday / Saturday and we played Airdrie at home on the Sunday. A neutral venue is not required as Somerset Park is available. Just not that weekend. Police will have advised not to play the game at the weekend due to the other, much, much bigger event. You would think that Montrose have never played a midweek game away from home before. The decision has been made, so no matter how much moaning there is, it won't be changed. You can either come along and cheer your team on you stay at home and get updates by text or from Twitter. No big deal really. And Ayr is about 35 miles from Glasgow, not much more than Montrose to Dundee. We might be a bit closer than you think.
  2. Challenge Cup 2017-18

    What's the big deal? I've been to Links Park twice, both were midweek games. And Ayr were part-time for the most recent of these. The transport networks will be extremely busy on both the Saturday and Sunday, meaning that your team and fans would have to leave very early to get to Somerset on time, and wouldn't get out of Ayr any time soon after full time. Besides, not playing at the weekend will mean a bigger crowd and more gate money. And it's a 19.45 kick off.
  3. East Stirling v Ayr United Reserves

    Waite was involved in the build up to at least 2 of the goals, Faulds was MOM and Murphy and McCowan both scored. That's good enough for me.
  4. Challenge Cup 2017-18

    274 was reported on Ayr Utd ' s Twitter feed. Not going to worry about an extra 44 folk though.
  5. Challenge Cup 2017-18

    To be fair we brought190 of the 274.
  6. East Stirling v Ayr United Reserves

    U20s teams were allowed to field 15 year olds in last season's Challenge Cup. It may be another one of these rule changes the SPFL didn't bother to inform clubs about. Then again, the SPFL and SFA are good at making things up as they go along.
  7. Ur No, Ur No, We're .....

    Same at Ayr, though I think he only had one or two seasons with us. Willie Jamieson and Henry Smith were also part of that team. And Paul Smith, who you are probably less keen on.
  8. Ur No, Ur No, We're .....

    He was indeed.
  9. Ur No, Ur No, We're .....

    1997. Won it at Berwick on the last day.
  10. If that's what happened they do not speak for me, or the majority of Ayr fans. As the for the tackle, don't talk bull. There was contact, Robbie Crawford got a sore one. And if it was in front of you, why we're you in the away end?
  11. His trailing foot came up just after that still. I saw it very clearly. But the leading foot is over the ball and should have been a red. Anyhoo, what's done is done and we all move on.
  12. The tackle happened right in front of me. He went over the ball with both feet and the ref bottled it by giving him a yellow. As for our penalty, your keeper got his hand on the ball first. Thought Rovers played some decent football at times. A much better side than under the previous regime.
  13. Whitletts Vics Name Change

    I have a decent knowledge of the history of the town of Ayr, and also Ayr United FC. I wouldn't claim to have an encyclopaedic knowledge of Whitletts Victoria, but it's probably better than your average punter. And I have no idea what you're on about.

    Not exactly a current player, but did Tommy Bryce not play till he was a fair age?
  15. Correct. He started last season in the u15s before being moved up to the u17 team.
