Alex 'Dixie' Ingram passes away, aged 77
Everyone at the Club are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of an Ayr United legend, Alex ‘Dixie’ Ingram.
Dixie is Ayr United’s fourth all-time top-scorer, having scored 117 goals in all competitions for the Honest Men.
In 2008, he was inducted into the Ayr United Hall of Fame and continued his links with the Club by becoming vice-chairman. He became an honorary president of the Club alongside Donald Cameron, Bill Barr and Andrew Charters.
Director, Alan Murray says: “Alex joined the Board of Ayr United in 2008 bringing with him a vast amount of both football and business knowledge having successfully led Ingram Motoring Group for a number of years.
There was always a presence when he walked into a room where everyone in football knew of him and for this he will forever be remembered.”
Director, Willie Houston says: “I was very lucky to have known Alex and he encouraged me to join the Board at Ayr United.
He was an immense figure as a player at Ayr and in the local business world. I will personally always be grateful to him for his support and his unwavering loyalty to the Club.”
Thoughts of everyone at Ayr United are with Alex’s wife Jean, son Malcolm, daughters Alison and Susan and all family and friends.
