The Ultimate Super Ayr Thread


Recommended Posts

I have been a player sponsor for a number of years now.  I decided to do sponsorship as I lived overseas and it seemed a good way to contribute to the club. In previous seasons, you got to meet your player near the end of the season at an event in the bowling club.  You were also given a shirt signed by your player..

This season there were some changes in addition to the above.  The main changes seemed to be handing your player his shirt at an event at the start of the season & having your name mentioned whenever you player scores a goal or is a substitute / substituted.

TBH as an individual sponsor,  I am not really keen to have my name announced.  Fine with it though if others want their name announced and it it attracts more sponsorship.  I can see that it may be a benefit to businesses, etc. 

Thinking about it though,  I would not mind if my name is mentioned 20-30 times this season when my player scores... not too bothered about the substitute bit though.

It will be some season if McGinty scores 20 to 30 goals.

I've been working so I'm a bit late commenting on yesterdays game. Thought it was a decent spectacle and we should have won.  

Enjoyed having Somerset Boab back, the songs certainly took me back!! 

Also for any DKBs looking in, never again talk about us "loving" rangers. I was at my mates earlier and he had a dodgy stream of their game (hes a Killie fan), anyway at the end it panned in on two kids in Killie training tops holding PRINTED signs asking Jota for his shirt. Imagine that shit after your team has been spanked 0-5. Tinpot beyond belief

The sub thing only really becomes an issue when teams make a triple substitution or more and it takes half an hour to read them all out.

I must admit I never even noticed it on Saturday

Have to say, if the biggest grievance right now is the players sponsors being read out then we’ve at least made some progress from the League Cup.

Exactly 🤣

Watched some unofficial highlights on YouTube and Dipo was certainly offside for his effort in the second half. I thought the lineman had made a mess of it but he was spot on.

For sure, it's a far cry from staring into the middle distance with the sound of silence playing in my head over and over...

😆Especially when that is just the goals scored at Somerset Park as you don’t get a mention at away games.

Could they announce the sponsor name a few seconds after the change? Eg "Substitution for Ayr United. Leaving the field number 8 Bob Smith to be replaced by number 14 Les Jones ...This season Les Jones is sponsored by Henry's Haulage Ltd, first in Ayrshire for all your haulage needs."

These the new signings?
